Peugeot Specialist Vehicle Operations (PSVO) is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Police Fleet Manager’s Show in Wroughton, near Swindon, by displaying its full range of specially adapted vehicles.
On display will be the versatile Peugeot 307 Estate which has been adapted to carry two police dogs, and fitted with a special semi-acoustic bulkhead to suppress any noise from the dogs, and improve conditions for police drivers. Additionally, the new Peugeot 807 MPV, which is specially equipped for police use, and the Expert van (capable of transporting two prisoners), will be at the show.
The two day exhibition, running on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 August, is now an international event, held on 12,000 square metres at the Science Museum facility at Wroughton.
The theme of this year’s show is ‘Police Transporting the Future’ to reflect the importance of protecting the planet both now and in future years. With its low CO2 emissions and excellent fuel consumption, the Expert van is a good example of how Peugeot is addressing the demand for fuel and CO2 efficient vehicles from police forces across the country.
Jon Morton, fleet sales manager at PSVO says: "This show is set to be a very exciting couple of days for PSVO with a number of our latest vehicles on display. Our vehicles are designed to meet the diverse requirements of the police authorities and their strict safety standards."
The show comprises 100 exhibitors made up of vehicle manufacturers, equipment, and service suppliers to police and other emergency services. The show is not open to the general public but a warm welcome is extended to all emergency service personnel, both civil and military.Published 17 August 2003
