The DPS (Or Dr. Pepper Squad if you're a local) took a Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 and over 470 horsepower, threw on an AFE Power intake and other unseen modifications, a light bar, and other small details on it to make the most insane DPS car since those old SSP Mustangs from the '80s and early '90s.

You think they have fistfights around the office to drive that instead of a POS Crown Vic?

The love of Dr Pepper in Texas has always amused me. I swear Texas must account for 90% of its sales.

Yep, the number 1 selling police vehicle currently is a SUV (forget which model). Houston has some fun vehicles:
-Dodge Chargers (all white or black with no external lights)
-Camaros (all white with no external lights and a bump bar on the front)
-A few SUVs have popped up but those are easy to spot, I think most so far have been standard patrol vehicles.

Yup, here in central Iowa I've seen plenty of new Chargers as police cars.

What really sucks is they blend in remarkably well when unmarked (and with normal color schemes). Seen a few of them around in surprising places.

Well...his title, "Peace Officer" is under review for whatever reason. But yes, he did donate these, along with the ghost Camaros in Houston.

And I 100% support it too, all the way from Phoenix. Texas feels like it's my second home.

Yep, most of the patrol cars for MSCO are Chargers now. Some of the city PDs have them too.

Still a lot of Crown Vics for DPS, but they did get the new Explorer for their SUV and K-9 units it seems.

Pretty sure I'd up and leave and head over to Dubai to patrol there.

Its under review because the school passed him even though he didn't take enough hours. The school got in some **** for it as well.
