I think the Model S would make a good police vehicle in place of the Ford police interceptors and Chrysler chargers.
In all respects, it has a faster acceleration, more trunk space for rescue equipment, and lower operating costs and does not have the draw backs of turning into a fireball like the pre-2005 Police interceptors. (Being burned alive is probably one of the worst ways to go)
For police officers, who have a larger degree of getting the back of their cars smashed (due to pulling cars over and another driver NOT paying attention- having a tank full of highly flammable liquid in the general vicinity is not a good idea, the Model S solves that problem by removing the flammable liquid). It's not a question of "if" they'll get their police car hit, it's a matter of "when". Not to mention the fact that if the gas tank does not explode, but ruptures, the police officer may be breathing in vapors of benzene, hexane, toluene, other hydrocarbons, etc, in which my cause long term health problems (cancer). I think the model S is the perfect car for their needs.
