Vauxhall Insignia Police Car Flexes Its Muscles for French Law Enforcers
The event was held at the Britsh Embassy in Paris and was attended by the Head of procurement for French police, Thierry Robin, and Chief Inspector of the Association of Chief Police Officers Intelligent Transport Systems (ACPO ITS), Mick Trosh.
SVA offers a standardized specification that allows all manufacturers and suppliers to adhere to it, allowing them to produce common wiring installations used for the equipment in police cars. The event followed the display of the SVA-equipped Insignia, the first of its kind, at the Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) show earlier in the month. The deputation of French police attending the HOSDB was pleased with the result, so it requested a demonstration to its full senior French police fleet team.
“It’s a great honour to be asked by the French police to demonstrate the SVA-equipped Insignia at the British ambassador’s residence in Paris. We were delighted to be able to display and explain the benefits that SVA offers police fleets to such a receptive and influential audience,” said Dick Ellam, Manager for Vauxhall Vehicle Conversions.
“Vauxhall’s partnership with ACPO ITS has already produced industry-leading results and substantial benefits to police fleets across technological standardisation, integration, and equipping and de-commissioning of vehicles, and we look forward to progressing that offering still further.”
