After a New York State Trooper was killed in a Crown Vic explosion, the head of the NYSP sent letters to Chrysler and GM begging them to build a rwd V8 car for police use. The State Police want to get rid of all their Crown Vics and replace them asap. This view is shared by many departments, so there is definately a strong police market for the Caprice.

The NYPD and NYSP refuse to use Impalas for highway patrol work because they favor rwd dynamics. Plus they have trained everyone on rwd for decades and it would be very difficult to retrain an entire department, especially the 40,000 strong NYPD, on fwd cars. Cops just like rear wheel drive.
