The police have taken delivery of the first batch of 1,200 new patrol cars it’s set to receive over the next few months. The cars will replace existing fleet vehicles that are older than eight years.

The Shah Alam police headquarters was the first department in Selangor to get the new cars, theSun reports. The department took delivery of 17 Proton Inspira 2.0s – which will be utilised for crime prevention rounds and community policing – to replace its old mobile patrol vehicles.

The vehicles were received by Shah Alam police chief ACP Shafien Mamat, who said that with the new acquisitions, the logistics department of the Shah Alam police will now have 85 mobile patrol vehicles, compared to 75 previously.

The report adds that the new Proton Inspira patrol cars are kitted out with additional equipment and new technology, and livery will include green reflector strips on the side and bonnet as seen on existing patrol vehicles – the latter is said to represent the force’s Go Green concept.
