UP Police in Ghaziabad has recently started using new flashy Mahindra Scorpios. Would try to get a picture.

Also one could see a flashy Delhi Traffic Police Pulsar on NH 24, complete with strobe lights and tall beacon. Much like the European counterparts police bikes.

Also recently saw a Tata Safari on NH 24, with big POLICE lettering on the body. Not sure... which city or department.

Wow i think Mumbai cops deserve these Ertiga's but i wonder why they are not diesel versions ? I hope they run those on CNG.

Even Pune police has had these Ertiga's for about 6 months now. They are white colored petrol LXi's. Good to see Mumbai police getting these much deserved Ertiga's. They look smart as a police vehicle however could get some basic accessories like wheel caps.

Very surprising to note that Mumbai police vehicles are running without number plate that too when it is illegal to even take out the car out of showroom without a temporary number.

I saw quite a few of them on road on the way back from work. With all those neat stickers they were looking chic, but I was utterly disappointed on seeing that they were Lxi trims. Given the amount of running each of these vehicles would be doing, at least basic thing that they could have done to save public money in the long run was to atleast buy a CNG or diesel version

Exactly, shouldn't they get diesel cars since these cars do a lot of running day in and day out (patrolling, transportation, attending to a situation, etc.)
I have seen a lot of official government vehicles that are petrol and do have a lot of running, many in my neighborhood as well (favorites being the Honda City, Swift Dzire and SX4), all petrol. Shouldn't they be trying to save the tax payers money by using more economical modes of transportation?

Actually, it is a good step that they got LXi model because I feel features like power windows, tachometer, music system shouldn't be needed in a police vehicle. Rear AC could have been fitted but every time I see a police Ertiga in Pune, they are always running without AC and with the windows down. Also, since these cars will be going through heavy abuse, electricals will keep on breaking down thus increasing the maintenance cost. Also, fitting CNG is not a good step because of limited range and the diesel variants also costs extra.

Chandigarh Police has also been using Maruti Ertiga for past 6 months or so, albeit the base diesel version. Ertiga is planned to slowly phase out all the old Gypsy's as the new PCR(Police control room) vehicle here in Chandigarh.
Although I must add, Gypsy looks far more butch in those red and blue stripes.

Ertiga is good, no one will deny that for sure. But in my personal opinion, Police should get cars like Sumo and Bolero only for normal work. Those are very rough and tough vehicles and can take abuse easily. Also those are diesel and very powerful, can carry extra loads when needed. Just my take

Saw several of them in the past few days, Liked the flashing blue lights on the top, But is it supposed to be always ON in the night? I saw several of them with the lights flashing, Which wasn't really very pleasing to the eye.

Chandigarh too has the same LXi variants with ABS. It's been 6 months they have made Gypsy as the secondary vehicle for the outer sectors.

It's a bit old now, say August 2015, but the MP police have taken 1,000 Tata Safari Storme. Can't seem to find the source. Image:

Ghaziabad police have upped the ante, by far.
Near the border, they are using Xenons with canopies. In white, but so damn good!!
The car. Lesser said about the people in it, the better.
