A lot of our local police departments are slowly replacing the Ford Crown Victoria with the Dodge Charger. I got a few shots of some today. Most of the ones that I have seen are still the traditional black and white, but this PD went with all black.

I wish I could have taken this shot from the other side instead of the shadow side, but there wasn't enough room.

Can I take your picture? "I'll swallow your soul!" Well, my camera will at least.

The Memphis PD have been using the chargers for a few years now and they are pretty intimidating when they're driving behind you. They're pretty quick too for police cars.

Yeah, the V6 models are more powerful than the V8 Crown Vics so they get better gas mileage too. They cost a little bit more than the Fords, but have a cheaper cost of ownership over the lifetime. Plus, they do look bad ass!

Some of our local CHP and PD has the chargers, with the Hemi though not the V6, and I have seen one local PD running around with Ford's new Ford Fusion with the twin turbo V6 Ecoboost motor...

LOL, you're right. I take that back.

Yeah, I thought that PD would not mess around with some "tiny" V6 and go all out with the most powerful engine available plus some "special sauce" like Crown Vics.
