Standing room clinches police deal for Iveco

WEST Mercia Constabulary has put an Iveco Daily City Truck 50C13 into service as a mobile control room because six-foot-tall officers can stand up in it.

As well as being used to store equipment, the City Truck is fitted out with a generator, telephones, fax machines and a 'Heli-Telly system' for watching live feeds from police helicopters.

PC Ian Fielding said: 'We looked at a number of different manufacturers before placing the order, but Iveco was the only one to offer a large enough van to suit this dual role requirement.

'One of the biggest advantages is that its height allows police officers, who are often over six feet tall, to stand up in the control room or when selecting from the load area.'

The van is expected to remain on the fleet for 10 years, covering around 180,000 miles.
