South Yorkshire Police get new recruit

EVO X police fq

The South Yorkshire police in the UK have a new member to the squad a brand new Mitsubishi Evolution X. It joins an already-intimidating Evo VIII and IX in the motorpool, it’s a specially equipped X that should help keep the Road Crime Unit (RCU) ahead of the baddies. The Evo X should be more than adequate for tracking down drug dealers and car thieves by itself, but deployed as a pack, the trio of Evos will probably scare scofflaws into simply giving up the chase.

The new Evolution X squad car will be fitted with an onboard Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system, which allows officers to “check who the vehicle is registered to and if there is anything remotely suspicious about the vehicle.” This sounds like just about the perfect pursuit and apprehend vehicle. If only we could get one here in NZ it might make those boring Police 10-7 type shows actually watchable.
