How good are police cars as armor shields?
We know police use their cars as armor shield in gun fight, but how good as a shield is it? Can it stop military grade bullets or just ordinary ones?
They are not all the same. Some can, some not so much, and not so much in this case is abjectly inadequate.
In real life I think police are taught to angle their car to a threat which allows them to put the engine block in between them and potential bullets.
Paneling, such as car doors, are not a reliable shield even to ordinary bullets. That only works in the movies.
It is possible to reinforce doors, but is probably outside the budget of most departments.
