Odd Req- In-Car computers for Police in Movies and TV

I am doing a school project comparing fact vs. fiction for in-car computers for police officers.. i am looking for any tv shows or movies that features police using their in-car computers.. any help would be more that appreciated, thanks in advance...another question, if i play the dvd on my computer, is there any way to capture a short clip to re-use? I want to put a clip on a powerpoint, on a computer with no dvd drive... Thanks again, Erich

I believe you can take a screenshot of the scene using something like PowerDVD or VLC Media Player. To grab a clip, unfortunately, circumvents the DMCA so it can't be discussed here. It can be done, but it's not as easy as you'd hope.

How about that commercial where the guy tracks down the kid on the street because it crashed? It's for one of the armed forces but I don't recall which one.
