Upgraded cars and mobile bases for Cyprus police

Next-gen vehicles to enhance law enforcement


With new police vehicles and Mobile Command Stations, the fleet of the Police Force is being bolstered in the immediate future. This includes 46 hatchback patrol cars and two vehicles specially configured to function as Mobile Command Stations.

The 46 hatchback patrol cars are fully equipped to meet the needs and duties of police officers. They feature a range of modern technological equipment tailored to the requirements of contemporary policing. In addition to their basic equipment (lights, sirens, announcement and display speakers), the new patrol cars are fitted with an on-board speed radar system, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system, vehicle location tracking system, Tetra wireless communication system, and GPS navigation system.

The two specially configured vehicles possess all the technological equipment necessary for them to operate as Command Stations, located near police operation points. These Mobile Command Stations feature, among other things, systems for generating electrical power, telecommunications management, and audiovisual recording from the area of police operations. Additionally, they have space for meetings and taking statements.

The new patrol cars will be promptly allocated to the District Police Directorates to meet their operational needs. Simultaneously, one Mobile Command Station will be assigned to cover the needs of the Police Directorates of Limassol and Paphos, while the second will serve the needs of the Police Directorates of Larnaca and Famagusta.

The new vehicles were inspected yesterday by the Chief of Police, Mr. Stelios Papatheodorou, who was briefed on their features and capabilities.
