Interesting watch - I was talking to a chap who works for the police as a civilian driver and he says that Norfolk Constabulary are phasing out the BMW’s and have taken delivery of a load of Volvos…

Haven’t BMW pulled out of supplying police spec vehicles to the UK? Sure I read something about this a while back.

I'm sure that this has something to do with the chip supply problem affecting car production. If BMW have a waiting list for cars with buyers willing to pay full retail then it makes no sense to flog 530D estates to the police for £15000 each.

The Police up here are mainly running around in Peugeot 308SW's now.

I heard a rumour not long after they were introduced that they were massively (and i mean massively) understrength for the task, and have to be honest, even glancing at them going about, they look it.

Saggy isn't even the word. The back ends of half of them look like the springs have snapped and there seems to be quite a few, not very old ones they are punting off quite young, and quite broken.... Usually gearboxes, but quite often emissions systems, Adblue faults rendering them paperweights unable to start etc.

The Kia Sportage is the beat car of choice her on Merseyside.

Rozzers in Tynemouth show off their personalised plate collection.

Many years ago the police on the isle of Alderney had a LandRover with the plate 999. I haven't been back to check if they still do.

Aye, that sounds about right. The police locally are running about in the Transits mostly, seems the Pugs all gave up. Before the Peugeots it was Mk2 Focuses, which just refused to die, still some decommissioned ones running about the two villages in private hands.

Scary, I guess you don't go up to that, knock on the glass ... "Excuse me officer, can you tell me how to get to Trafalgar Square?"

On another thought - that would be shite in a confined, urban, flowing public disorder situation - you'd end up crushing kids in prams (although I guess that's not a problem in some countries).
