The Dallas police will use a hi-tech police station on wheels during Super Bowl week.

The state of the art mobile command post is called THOR -- the Tactical Homeland Operational Response unit. The unit is on loan to the Dallas Police Department for it to use during Super Bowl week.

"The Dallas Police Department is going to evaluate its capabilities and then determine what role it will play in the Super Bowl," said Lt. Chris Aulbaugh.

The unit is so hi-tech the company providing it, Intrado, did not allow and pictures inside of it.

"It can literally take 911 calls into the truck, then we can dispatch the entire continuum - police, fire, EMS including aircraft," said Intrado spokesperson Michael Lee.

The multi-level mobile command post is also equipped with extensive radio and video capabilities, a conference room and even a dispatch center.

Dallas police insist THOR will make emergency operations during Super Bowl week more efficient.
