You know what are the advantages of being a police officer? After catching the bad guys - especially those that have sweet rides - you can also use their, uhm...so-called ’assets’ like, say, a £40,000 Audi Q7 TDI tuned by Abt Sportsline . Once the car of a criminal gang from Glasgow is now being used as a patrol car. Yeah, we saw that coming.
According to Chief Constable John Neilson: "I would say to the criminals that what you have this week; your houses, your cars - you might not have next week. The hard working, law abiding citizens need to know that we are hurting those involved in serious and organized crime where it matters - their pockets. These criminals are fast realizing that they are not above the law. They may think that they are getting away with it, but we are determined to make a long-term impact in this area."
And as proof that Chief Constable Neilson talks the talk, check out that ’confiscated’ AS7 that’s been turned into a patrol vehicle. Looks good in its new digs, doesn’t it?
