Police fleets offered free trial of new Skoda Superb Estate dog patrol vehicle

The upgraded model, which complies with the rigorous new standards for police dog vehicles set out by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the RSPCA, has been designed to transport general purpose police dogs, as well as trained drugs-search and explosives-detection dogs.

Available in either two- or four-wheel drive, each vehicle goes through a police vehicle conversion service, with bespoke interior features to keep the dogs safe, cool, and comfortable.

Already, one police force has ordered eight vehicles and a demo version hits the road this week for a year-long tour of forces across the country. The tour kicks off in South Yorkshire with different police forces trialling the car over a period of weeks.

Additional forces can get in touch and register for their free trial by emailing [email protected] or calling 01908 548043.
