DEARBORN (WKZO) -- Ford Motor Company is unveiling a new measure of security for law enforcement agencies using the company's Police Interceptor vehicles.

A surveillance mode uses the driver safety features including the backup camera, cross traffic alert and reverse park assist to guard against potential assailants from sneaking up on an officer while in the vehicle.  Officials say when an officer activates the system, the vehicle continually monitors the environment around the car.

The company will have the feature available on 2014 Police Interceptor vehicles.
