I think they are inspired by the way the Air force thinks. The AF intends to have a mix of Light (Mig21, LCA Tejas,M2000), Medium (Rafale, Jaguar) and Heavy (Su30MKI). Each class has a different use. Light is typically cheaper to obtain and use but has shorter range and carries less into the fight. Medium has medium range and can fight pretty well, Heavy is the air dominance, Superb range, Scary ability to carry and deliver weapons.

Same way now Police will have light (Nano) - Regular duties, night patrolling, city chase car etc. Medium (Jeeps/Sumos) - People moving, escort duty, Heavy (Indigo) for the 'Sahib' and high speed chase!

On most of our city roads the Nano will actually help them to reach quicker than even the 'fast' cars. Try driving on Laxmi road in the evening and you will see what I am saying. And the Nano is no slouch, it is pretty quick when accelarating to 55-60 kph speeds, typically what you expect on city roads.

Just my 2 cents!

Although not suited for the purpose, the Police Nano looks cute. It will be a great boon for parking though, I have seen many a police Sumo's being parked in a way to obstruct the traffic.

BTW if they catch some anti social elements, how many and how will they fit inside the Nano?

I bet this nano has all the necessary modifications done, viz. Radio unit, computer/ laptop link-up to the HQ server, Speed detect radar, cage for the arrested.

Lol, just kidding..

BTW - is this the 2012 Nano ?

Gentlemen who are questioning the capability of the Nano, are you assuming that the only job of a police vehicle is to chase suspects? The police department doesn't primarily pull out their cars wheel spinning to glory in a high speed chase each and every time. While they do have to be prepared for such an operation, I am sure the Mahindra jeeps as well as the Sumos are not that great for the job either.

The Nano could serve as a stealth car that is capable of pulling into narrow alleys and bylanes of crowded areas like Kalbadevi, Peth areas of Pune, the crowded streets of Panaji, etc. The comfort with which you could park the car would save the drivers some trouble. The Nano can easily carry 4-5 people, not sure if fat policemen would sit with ease but a carrying capacity of 4 pax is good enough IMO.

On Pune city roads, Nano can beat Fortuner very easily.

As many others have said, this will serve Police for most of the purposes. Even in catch-the-theif cases, with advanced telecommunication facilities, actual chase will be more of road-blocks and may be a brief last mile chase.

From the cost point of view, Police will be able to afford more such cars in place of their more costly alternatives.

You can get 4 Nanos for the price of 1 Bolero and its fuel efficient. So it will definitely save a lot of money for the police department. As far as its speed/pick up goes, I think when required it can be quite fast in a crowded/ narrow street. I remember managing 100 on the speedo with 5 people onboard (incl driver) in Nano.
I think it will serve their purpose really well, much better than the 20 yr old Fieros the Maharashtra cops use.

according to me its a good move. police hardly chase anyone. all the do is roam around in sumos and qualis all over. instead of spending so much on big cars its better to use nano.

nano is very capable car in city. it can easily squeeze in and maneuver in tight spots.
and its not a slow couch either. in city definitely it will be very agile.

Actually coming to think of it you are right Concedering the fact that Goa is full of narrow roads (Apart from the city limits like panaji), a Nano makes a lot of sense. It will be easier for cops to maneuver through roads of the likes of Baga and Anjuna...good move by the goa cops

Cops use such cars to get to from point A to B and not necessarily chasing. Having a small easy to negotiate car serves its purpose in busy and crowded streets and also takes much less space if it needs to be parked on the road side.

Standing on road side ensuring things are going on in order, with a Mahindra Jeep means half (or maybe one fourth) the road is taken by the jeep and the rest for others to walk, drive around. Commercial Street in Bangalore is a good example.

So the Nano can actually be used for police's city work.

Infact in US, police use a small car like this for checking parking violations & issuing tickets.
In Connecticut atleast West Haven Police uses Segway! Its really the cool and helps to jump on to people in shady lanes!

Found this on youtube today.
I feel for the 4 occupants in it. They must have become soft in their operations by now. :(

Kerala highway police is provided with Innovas for law enforcement to replace their ageing Tavera's and Bolero's. Seems it is very base version of Innova, as it doesnt have body colured bumpers. Motorists using Kerala Hellways will have tough time now as these guys goes for escort for our ministers. Earlier the police escort Bolero/Tavera couldnt catch up with Innova/Corolla/Skoda of minister, which slowed down the convoy. Still they used to hurt or kill other road uses atleast once a month. Now it is killing time!!! God help us!!!

Yesterday, I was driving past Worli naka in Mumbai and I saw some boys struggling to push start a Police Bolero (with a full load of cops inside). It was so comical that I forgot to click a picture. Now, my point is that if the police can properly maintain their vehicles, they'd have better luck in a Nano than with the current lot of Boleros.
