The first patrol car was used in 1917. Later when radios were installed, the radio inside the vehicle could only receive messages. This required the officers to pull over to a call box and acknowledge the messages when received. In 1937, technology had improved and two-way radiotelephones were installed in RMPs. It wasn't until 1950 that all police cars had two-way radios.
