Police in Dubai apparently aren't too worried about criminals throwing metal balls at their vehicles. The force has signaled that it plans to place an order for Tesla's futuristic Cybertruck, despite a well-publicized window failure during the vehicle's recent unveiling, CBS reports. Dubai police tweeted an image of a Cybertruck with their logo last week, saying "Dubai Police 2020." Officials say they plan to use the electric vehicle in tourist-heavy areas of the emirate, reports CNET. The standard model of the pickup is expected to cost around $40,000, which is unlikely to bust the force's budget: Their other vehicles include two Porsches, two Ferraris, a Lamborghini, a Bugatti, and an Aston Martin. Officers also started training on hoverbikes this year. (Elon Musk says orders are pouring in.)
