The Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (colloquially referred to simply as the CVPI, P71, or P7B) is a four-door, body-on-frame sedan that was manufactured by Ford from 1992 to 2011. It is the law-enforcement version of the Ford Crown Victoria.

From 1997 to 2011, the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor was the most widely used automobile in law enforcement operations in the United States, Canada, and Saudi Arabia. It was also used for this purpose on a more limited scale in other countries.

After the discontinuation of the Chevrolet Caprice, the Ford Motor Company held a near-monopoly on the market for police cruisers in the United States and Canada for over a decade. The conventional rear-wheel drive, V8 power, and body-on-frame construction were considered advantageous for police use. The body-on-frame construction allowed inexpensive repairs after collisions without the need to straighten the chassis. Rear-wheel drive was deemed better for hard maneuvers and more robust than the front-wheel-drive competition for rough driving over curbs and other obstacles in the urban environment.

Although Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptors (CVPIs) were not sold to the general public, they are widely available used in North America once they are decommissioned and no longer in service in law-enforcement and fleet duty. The cars are in demand by taxi companies, those who want a safe, durable, and/or inexpensive car, and those who need a car with a bench seat that can take three passengers in the back. The CVPI came equipped with many heavy-duty parts, such as a revised transmission, and a 186 kW (253 PS; 249 hp) engine. Used versions are normally stripped of any police decals, computer equipment, police radios, and emergency lights before being sold or auctioned to the public
