Blue Lives Also Matter: Philadelphia Police Unveil Cars With Bulletproof Windows

The Philadelphia TV news station 6abc.com offers a piece on the new Philadelphia Police patrol cars equipped with bulletproof windows.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police have 150 new patrol cars on the way with a feature that no other major municipality has: bulletproof windows.

The vehicles have ballistic shields affixed to the front door panels and what is dubbed 'transparent armor' backstops a large portion of the original equipment glass in the front windows.

It all makes this modified car resistant to pistol and shotgun ammunition.

"It is cutting edge in the sense that it provides protection for police officers seated in the vehicle from gunfire," said Commissioner Richard Ross.
