The Fast And The Luxurious: Dubai Police Gets Mercs And Bentleys by elctroguru(m): 6:12pm On May 08, 2013
After generating headlines for their Ferraris and Lamborghinis, it seems Dubai police have a much bigger need for speed.

Adding luxury to crime fighting, the force has included Mercedes and Bentley cars to their fleet this week.

Photos of a Bentley and Mercedes SLS, painted in the colors of the force, were taken while they were parked in a Dubai Police garage.

The images were circulating on social media on Saturday, with the new cars having number plates 4 and 5.

Last month, with the introduction of Ferraris to the force, Dubai police head Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan explained why the force needed the luxury cars.

“Dubai is a unique city and everything in it should reflect its uniqueness and for that reason police will add a Ferrari sports car to its patrol fleet,” Khalfan said, according to local UAE news reports.

The $545,000 sports car will be used to keep order on the streets in high-end locations such as the area surrounding Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper.

Khalfan said “Dubai Police are working on updating the police patrol cars to enhance security on the roads in accordance with highest international standards and technical developments.”

He added that the Dubai Police is one of the few police forces in the world fortunate enough to have such cars in its security patrol service.

Other sports cars in the Dubai Police patrol fleet include $550,000 Lamborghinis and Chevy Camaro sports cars, which can often be seen on busy highways.
