From simple tweaks to major reinventions, transportation is evolving. Transportation for the law enforcement and public safety communities is no exception. New vehicle designs and features are helping to keep officers safer on the road and in the field and addressing more universal needs like better fuel economy.
“There’s a lot more technology,” said Steve Contarino, vice president at Adamson Industries, a Massachusetts company dedicated to public safety vehicle installation and design. “As times change, the different missions of law enforcement change. We have vehicles now that can keep officers safer than we ever could before. There are safer structures in the vehicles themselves. We’re working toward using those technologies.”
