Sortimo Globelyst Installed In Lancashire Police's Accident Investigation Units

The Lancashire Police Accident Investigation Unit have added five Ford Mondeo Estates installed with Sortimo International Limited’s Globelyst equipment to their fleet of Ford Transit Connect Accident Investigation Units they had fitted with Sortimo 18 months ago.

"We saw the need to have our specialist equipment correctly stored, both from a security aspect and from a safety aspect and visited Sortimo’s stand at the CV Show in Birmingham where we learnt of their rigorous crash testing on all their equipment. Besides their crash worthiness data the reason for using Sortimo’s Globelyst solutions in the Ford Mondeo Estates was also the keen price, versatility of the systems and Sortimo’s Northern Sales Technician Andy Green’s excellent service. Since the Ford Transit Connects were fitted with Sortimo 18 months ago, our accident investigators have been able to access their specialist equipment quickly and with ease while on site," - PC Simon Batten of Lancashire Police.

Lancashire Police Accident Investigation Unit based in Bamber Bridge, near Preston provides 24 hour cover in support to the six Police Divisions within the County in accident investigation and reconstruction techniques where officers attached to the Unit attend all fatal and serious injury road accidents and any other incidents where their specialist skills may be able to assist the divisional officers.

Sortimo installed the five Ford Mondeo Estates with three different Globelyst units comprising of; three 100% telescopic drawers, a cabinet containing two deep removable service cases and a shelving unit with three levels of removable S-Box bins for keeping an assortment of items i.e. cameras, for recording and measuring details of incidents neatly stored and easy to transfer once on site. All the cabinets have a top trough tray with anti-rattle mats and allow for dividers to be added when needed and Soboflex - Sortimo’s anti-slip safety flooring.
