What's interesting is that the eight patrol EVs are touted as a way for the fuzz to "arrive at the scene of a crime in near silence."<br /><br />Portugal's PSP (Polícia de Segurança Pública) will use the all-electric hatchbacks mostly for the Safe School Program, Nissan said in a statement, but they are decked out and ready "to perform other police duties at any time" should the need arise. We'd assume chases won't be part of the mission, but other than that, we don't see any reason the eight electric Nissans will be treated much differently than the other 5,000 cars in the PSP fleet, especially since Portugal has been implementing a network of EV chargers, <a href=&quot;http://green.autoblog.com/2011/08/02/261-charging-stations-installed-in-portugal-1-350-coming-soon/">Level 2</a> and <a href=&quot;http://green.autoblog.com/2011/08/21/siemens-logs-up-to-300-unit-quick-charge-station-order-from-port/">quick chargers</a> among them.<p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/07/14/nissan-leaf-gets-badged-for-police-duty-in-portugal/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Nissan Leaf gets badged for police duty in Portugal</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/07/14/nissan-leaf-gets-badged-for-police-duty-in-portugal/">Nissan Leaf gets badged for police duty in Portugal</a> originally appeared on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sat, 14 Jul 2012 12:02:00 EST.
