SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Sacramento Police patrol cars will soon have ballistic doors.

The Sacramento City Council voted Tuesday night to approve more than $440,000 to buy the doors, which can also be used as a shield if officers come under fire.

The decision to get the ballistic doors came after two bullets came through a car door during a shootout in September in South Sacramento. In that incident, two police officers, Victor Wolfe and Tim Martin, were injured.
