Nottinghamshire Police has recently taken delivery of 100 new Škodas. These will now form part of their expanding emergency vehicle fleet and will be utilised by a range of departments such as driver training, dog units, and road policing.

The force’s current collection of emergency vehicles already includes several Škodas which have been converted for use across a number of functions.

This new delivery comprises of 92 Octavia Estates and eight Superb Estates. The Octavias – 1.5 TSI and 2.0 TDI SE Tech models – will be used in response and neighbourhood policing roles, fitted with emergency warning equipment, full livery kit and light bar on the roof. They will also be used by driver training teams along with the Superb Estates – all in Sportline Plus 2.0 TSI 280 DSG 4×4 spec – which will be used in dog units and road policing roles too.

Vehicles used by the Dog units come with bespoke kennel conversions, developed by Pressfab EVO Limited – one of Škoda’s approved converters – in conjunction with Nottinghamshire Police to meet their specific requirements, with specialist air conditioning and blue light fitment.  Road policing cars get a full blue light fit, ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) and matrix board.
