Why: The Independence Package saves law enforcement departments money on wasted gasoline, wear and tear on vehicle engines and helps ensure their cars stay in the field due to less maintenance and no dead batteries. The Independence Package reduces overall emissions by using stored power instead of the car's gasoline-powered engine to run its electrical systems. See the Independence Package firsthand at the Expo as it will be featured on a Crown Victoria from the Inglewood Police Department. Also hear firsthand from Rick Longobart, the fleet services superintendent for the City of Inglewood, about how the Inglewood Police Department will utilize the Independence Package.
