police frisky

Post by tomkilner on Wed Feb 12, 2014 9:30 pm

Our ford transit frisky belonged to the police from 1993 to 2005. It's low mileage.
There seem to be quite a few similar age and spec and mileage ones about.
Did the police own a few? 
The exterior is good, and the interior almost unused. Everything is very original, and we have the full police workshop history and original instructions. The police certainly like to look after their vehicles.
Anyone know anything about it?

I Know that our local police owned a small Pilot coachbuilt, because I used to feel an idiot when I waved to them. hugegrins

Great - my first clue!
Did you spot where they were going? Stakeout at a campsite or maybe a remote moorland crimescene where they could have a cuppa and a lie down to break the monotony.
Did they look like they were having fun?  confused3

.Thanks for that.
The article suggests they aren't enjoying it much. Shame.
They need to pull over where there's a nice view and brew up.
I can almost see a new autosleepers section developing.

Hi,

I know this thread started some time ago but I'm new here and am just catching up with things.  Thought I'd just say that Gloucestershire Constabulary operate three 'Bobby Bus' vehicles.  Originally these were second hand motorhomes acquired from dealers who 'support' the police (ie. they got them at a cheap rate, the first Skodas on the force arrived in the same way).  The idea was to provide a contact point for the community now that so many rural police stations have closed.  Recently they seem to have been replaced with vehicles that look a bit more purpose built, or perhaps they're something like ex-mobile libraries (something else that has suffered in the cuts).  Not sure if other areas of the country have the same idea.

And there was me thinking it was part of a new "softly softly" approach to offenders when under arrest - on the way back to the police station the persons under arrest could relax in the back of the motorhome and an on board stewardess would serve them drinks, a meal, whilst they watched TV, perhaps had a doze in bed,.........
