Cop cars aren't just family sedans with new paint and stick-on lights anymore. They're high tech cruisers designed for tracking and surveillance.

And then there's the NYPD's new cruiser, which even features radiation detectors.


What other extremely high-tech features are making their way onto cop cars these days?
