They certainly would have made sense.Obviously not in a pursuit role,but definitely in a patrol role.Why police today dont drive common sense cars in the roles most of them play,is a mystery.99% of the time they are not in a 120 mph pursuit role,so any lowline econocar could work.Nobody needs a Charger,Crown Vic,Impala,Tahoe when they are one person/two person patrols and just putting around or parked.If I was a police chief,I would request the town to find a Dynasty,600,E Class type car,and save the municipality money.It would also bring the town some mainstream "acclaim" as a frugal bunch.

That would make absolutely no fucking sense at all.

I had seen some with the Miami Dade police department several years ago, but they were used primarily for security.

Yes, they made police cars, and we have ONE member with one who is inactive. From time to time, 1980s Diplomat police cars still surface for sale, but not the Ks. They had a TON of Reliant
and Aries squad cars back in the day, but they were all destroyed. I would love to find one and do an article. There is even an old brochure out there somewhere about the K-police cars. 8-)

Makes more sense than driving a 12-15 mpg V8 gas hog all day just putting around or idling.
Think of what they are costing municipalities just for gas.Thats money you pay for in taxes (sales,property..).
For my money I would get the cops to drive economy cars.Thats all they need anyway.

An unmarked k car would have made an awesome radar car. I have seen a jeep tj on an over pass with the hood up and half a dozen patrol cars on the on ramp ready to pull over speeders and they were busy.
