Ford Mustang loses its police stripes after overheating within minutes of a simulated pursuit in Australia

THE Ford Mustang may be in hot demand but it won’t be in hot pursuit.

The iconic US muscle car has lost its police stripes after failing a critical test at the final hurdle before it could become a highway patrol vehicle.

NSW Police are now likely to be driving Volvo sedans and wagons, after their highway patrol counterparts in Queensland took delivery of five Swedish cars last month as part of a trial.

News Corp Australia has been told the Ford Mustang passed a brake test in the simulated pursuit at the police driving academy in Goulburn, however the automatic transmission overheated after just two laps, or about three minutes of driving.

The Mustang was then taken to the local Ford dealership in Goulburn for repairs after the performance flagship went into “limp home mode”.

While Ford is now holding a record 6000 orders in Australia for the Mustang — pushing the waiting list to 18 months — none will join NSW Police ranks after failing the endurance test, which is conducted for safety reasons before a car can be put into police service.

The future of the Ford Mustang bought by NSW Police for the trial is unclear. It may be used as a show pony at road safety displays, or could be stripped of its livery and sold.

The Ford Mustang was one of a number of vehicles police are considering to replace Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon pursuit cars, once they go out of production.

The Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon have been a staple of highway patrol fleets across Australia for decades, with more than 1000 in use nationally.

The Mustang’s police test failure means Ford will miss out on a large slice of the market it has previously dominated.

While cars like the Toyota Camry will replace general duties police sedans, finding suitable highway patrol vehicles is more difficult because the Falcon and Commodore have a lot of performance for the price.

Once the Ford production line closes in October 2016 and the Holden production line closes in late 2017, police will be forced to drive imported cars.

Ford spokesman Wes Sherwood told News Corp Australia the Mustang “was not specially engineered for police use” and described the test as “extreme” as it involves “more than twice the amount of braking manoeuvres as the global standard”. Ford had to make upgrades to the brakes and transmission cooling to the current Falcon before it passed the police test.

Mr Sherwood added: “We are confident Mustang would help officers chase down bad guys if put into service”.

NSW Police said it would not comment as the evaluation process for highway patrol replacement vehicles was “ongoing”.

Last week, police in Victoria became the envy of their colleagues after taking delivery of a $200,000 Mercedes SUV that can sprint from 0 to 100kmh in a Porsche-like 4.2 seconds.

But it did not cost taxpayers one cent because it was donated by Mercedes for a 12-month trial.

DENVER — Raw video from the Denver officer-involved shooting. In the video, an unidentified man takes a woman and uses her as a shield while police yell for the man to surrender.
WARNING: This video may not be appropriate for some viewers.
As the man tries to take the woman back inside the store, an officer opens fire hitting the man. He falls to the ground, the hostage runs away and officers swarm the area.
The man was taken to Denver Health Medical Center for treatment and was listed in critical condition Monday afternoon.
(DenverChannel) DENVER – Denver Police have identified the suspect who allegedly took hostages inside a 7-Eleven Monday. Police said 34-year-old Blas Leroux was shot in the shoulder as he tried to use one of the hostages as a human shield.
The standoff began at 8:30 a.m., after witnesses saw the suspect running from police.
“He dropped his coat,” said Dino Gallegos, who was exiting the store as Leroux ran in, “and the officer picked it up. The suspect ran around the corner and into 7-Eleven.”
Police Chief Robert White said negotiators tried for nearly an hour to get him to surrender. He refused and instead used one of the three hostages as a shield in an attempt to escape.
“The officers demanded that he let her go, at which time he attempted to pull her back into the store,” White said. “So out of fear for her safety, one of the officers fired a shot striking the individual.”
Leroux was taken to a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. The hostage was not injured.
A Colorado Bureau of Investigation report shows Leroux has used several other names. He has a lengthy criminal record including convictions for trespass, motor vehicle theft, assault, burglary, child abuse, escape and harassment.

8…Officers Shoot & Kill Suspect on LIVE TV! Phoenix Car Chase (23 October 2014) KTVK

Published on Oct 26, 2014

**Exclusive YouTube/wwwy2000 video** | Associated Press –
Police in a Phoenix suburb fatally shot a machete-wielding man Thursday after he rammed a patrol car in a stolen truck, injuring an officer.

Avondale police said the man was shot after he refused to drop the machete and a pocket knife.

Authorities identified the man as Jeremy Bustos, 43, and said he was rushed to a hospital along with an Avondale police officer who was injured in the collision.

The officer’s name hasn’t been released, but Avondale police Sgt. Brandon Busse said the officer was in stable condition and improving at a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses said the suspect was shot at least twice and helicopter news video showed him falling to the ground before he was taken to a trauma center.

Busse said the spree started when a man assaulted a city maintenance worker on the side of a roadway and stole his city truck about 9 a.m. The man took the truck on a joyride as police pursued before officers got a helicopter to track the stolen vehicle and backed off, authorities said.

Police began a pursuit and used tire-puncturing devices and the chase ended with the truck ramming the police car.

Officers confronted the suspect, who refused their commands and advanced toward them with a machete and pocket knife and was shot, according to Busse.

Avondale Fire Department crews extricated the police officer from his vehicle and he was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital.
