Ford will offer ballistic panels on their Police Interceptor sedan and utility with protection from armor-piercing rifle ammunition. “Ford is well-known in the police community for going further to enhance officer safety. It’s what our product is all about, first and foremost,” says Raj Sarkar, general marketing manager, Ford North American Fleet, Lease, and Remarketing operations. The factory-equipped vehicles are the first pursuit-rated police vehicles in the United States to offer ballistic protection up to Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice standard Type IV.
