“We pride ourselves in being the first police force in the world to incorporate cars with zero-emission technology as part of our 5,000 vehicle fleet,” said Paul Gomes Valente, national director of the Portugal State Police in a statement released by Nissan. “We want to continue reducing pollution in large urban centers and the introduction of the Leaf sets a new benchmark for our fleet.”

107-hp; 100 miles on a single charge, 0 to 60 mph in about 2 days – sounds like the perfect cop car.
