The addition of the anti-idle technology will maintain essential systems on the vehicle while, all the time saving fuel for the division and keeping our officers safe. We think it is important to demonstrate our desire to be efficient with our fleet and respectful of the money it takes to operate our fleet of vehicles.

Engine off. Components on.

Training operators to shut off the vehicle is one approach to reducing idling; however, when the vehicle’s ignition is turned off by an operator, the airbags, windshield wipers, lighting, gun racks, and other equipment are also powered off. With the GRIP System, all auxiliary functions, lighting, and communications devices are fully functional while the vehicle’s engine is powered off.

Operational readiness: always at-the-ready.

GRIP’s unique door-start feature has been developed to allow a quick, rapid engine-start when the officer is running back to the vehicle to ensure there is no delay to get the vehicle in motion. With the door-left-open start option enabled, GRIP starts the vehicle if the door has been left open for any reason, allowing the vehicle to be “always-ready” and enabling the officer to drive away quickly if needed.

  • Automatic start with fastened seatbelt
  • Driver-door-opening automatic start
  • "Anti-theft only" and "seat belt only" start features
  • "Safe Mode" maintains the vehicle's engine temperature and batteries if the vehicle is left for an extended period of time (paid traffic duty, road closure, etc.)

Increase vehicle security with anti-theft

GRIP’s anti theft feature provides security to the vehicle when the vehicle is unattended. This feature allows GRIP to continuously monitor and control the vehicle’s ignition even when they keys are removed and the operator has left the vehicle unattended, all while providing vehicle security and preventing vehicle theft.

  • Anti-theft cylinder lock
  • Anti-theft engine stall
