It was no doubt what is termed "forward facing radar" ...... I am no familiar with the details of the Merideth cruisers but in many of our local towns the officer driving in a cruiser has both forward and rear facing radar units built into the vehicles front annd rear dashboards. A simple flick of the switch changes from front to rear collection.

This is no doubt what your husband encountered.
