Milton Keynes, 24 February 2016 - The upgraded Superb Estate, 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 Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (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. Eight vehicles have already been snapped up by one customer, 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.
ŠKODA is inviting additional forces to get in touch and register for their free trial. Police forces wishing to register their interest in testing the Superb dog vehicle on loan can do so by emailing
firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01908 548043.
