- [00:00:19.227]"Patrolling Police Cars"
- [00:00:21.140]by Tony Mitton and Ant Parker.
- [00:00:25.210]Patrolling almost anywhere, in any neighborhood,
- [00:00:28.650]police cars help police
- [00:00:30.210]keep all things steady, safe, and good.
- [00:00:35.280]To get to an emergency, police cars sometimes need
- [00:00:38.470]to be there very quickly, which means they have to speed.
- [00:00:43.410]To warn the other traffic that they're going very fast,
- [00:00:47.070]their flashing lights and sirens signal,
- [00:00:49.687]"Quickly, let me past!"
- [00:00:53.250]For giving them instructions and to tell them where to go,
- [00:00:56.910]the station contacts officers by two-way radio.
- [00:01:01.920]Some cars have computers that can use the internet
- [00:01:05.310]to access all the information that they need to get.
- [00:01:10.720]Police cars carry radars to catch us if we're speeding.
- [00:01:14.930]They point them at a car to get it speed shown as a reading.
- [00:01:19.830]When a car is going too fast, police can make it stop.
- [00:01:24.060]This car is getting cautioned by a frowning traffic cop.
- [00:01:28.242]Oh, no!
- [00:01:30.080]Police don't use their sense of smell
- [00:01:32.370]to seek a person out.
- [00:01:34.470]This K-9 Unit's used to carry dogs like this about.
- [00:01:40.750]When officers catch criminals or suspects that they track,
- [00:01:44.590]they take them to the station locked safely in the back.
- [00:01:48.630]Some cars have sheets or toughened glass
- [00:01:52.260]that firmly stand between the front seats and the back seats
- [00:01:55.870]to make a safety screen.
- [00:02:00.330]Police cars must be sturdy,
- [00:02:02.770]like these two that have made an obstacle
- [00:02:05.410]to block the road, a two-car barricade.
- [00:02:11.180]There's a tough push bumper.
- [00:02:13.470]When it's put in place,
- [00:02:14.760]it helps police push heavy things and clear away a space.
- [00:02:19.220]And here's a flexi-spotlight.
- [00:02:21.200]It shines a beam of light.
- [00:02:23.260]It's great for lighting up a scene,
- [00:02:25.200]it's powerful and bright.
- [00:02:28.620]Patrol cars have all kinds of things they need
- [00:02:31.340]to take around.
- [00:02:32.950]Neatly packed inside the trunk,
- [00:02:35.070]that's where they'll be found.
- [00:02:37.370]They even hold first aid kits,
- [00:02:39.580]so if you're hurt or bleeding,
- [00:02:41.140]an officer can give you the attention you'll be needing.
- [00:02:45.920]So when you see police cars, as they cruise around,
- [00:02:49.740]remember that they're there for you,
- [00:02:51.650]to keep you safe and sound.
