Why are cops allowed to have cars like this? How are they supposed to arrest someone and safely secure them in the back seat? Are they handcuffed to a special apparatus in the backseat somehow? They would like have to get in the backseat with them to even secure them to something. This makes no sense to me.

Maybe it’s only highway patrol.
A dog squad or K9 vehicle may not have suitable rear human capacity either.

I'd rather they have Mustangs (or Mustang-equivalents) than the Brodozers that are modern day SUVs / Pickups...

It's probably a pursuit car. Once they catch them they call for transportation to haul them back if needed. The police departments did much the same thing in 1982. The smog regulation so crippled the cars that they couldn't get much over 100. When the 82 mustang became available Ford sold a bunch of them to the police to be used as pursuit cars. Unfortunately for the California highway patrol shortly after they got their first batch, it rained and the officers were unable to properly handle them so they smashed a couple.

This has been going on since '82, when the SSP program started. Then police forces realized the resale of a used Mustang cop car was way better than a Crown Vic or Caprice. Biloxi, Miss. had an '04 Mach 1 cop car, two actually. One was lost during Katrina, the other retired after DARE work.

I'm kind of surprised a Mustang enthusiast outside of a collector would buy those used Mustang cop cars unless it was at a deep discount. You gotta know those things were ran hard and idled forever and a day.

Just for looks and advertisements of police presence. Back in Baltimore in my youth the cops had a 1994 GT that was all fitted out like the ones in Robocop. Used it to promote an afterschool program to help kids avoid drugs. In Virginia back in 2015 , the state troopers had a dressed up Camaro that they used to post up on the bridge tunnel. Our tax dollars at work.

In the early 80s the Washington state patrol had some sweet looking unmarked stangs. Dark tinted windows and chrome wheels. I remember seeing a blue one a green one and a red one around the tri-city area.

Shotgun or call for another unit.

North Carolina State Troopers place all prisoners in the front with all their vehicles. They do not install cages.
