They also have a very old Nissan Micra(I think) in battered blue paint with Winnie the Pooh stickers on it and yellow flowers painted on the bonnet - yes really!!!!!!!!!

The unmarked cars tend to get moved around between the forces, so that they don't get too well known locally.

They also had a 50th Anniversary special Super Blackbird a few years back-maroon with silver lettering- as an unmarked bike.

Swansea and Bridgend police do like their expensive toys. I took quite a few expensive unmarked bikes out to them while working for the people that built them as a subbie.

As stated by Toby. 'what on gods earth can that be of any use as'

Doesn't set a good example of prioritising funding when the Non Existent Traffic Cops have got flash sporty motors and and yet when someone is being burgled they might be lucky to see a normal cop the next day.

When I was subject to a crime all I got was a letter two weeks later and an advice sheet on counselling. Would rather have had a plod sniffing around for a few days asking questions and making people nervous. In fact I wouldn't have minded if he'd turned up in that sports car, as long as it was quickly. Might have made me feel as though my Tax Pound is being used wisely.

I'll get off my soapbox now.

They have had the Evo for a while now - they have an ANPR camera in it and use it to catch evil nasty villains - you know the poor sods who have forgotten their MOT has run out or the people with no TAX!!!
