Nissan LEAF joins the Portuguese Police Force
Portuguese criminals need to be extra cautious, as the Portuguese police force has now got the new electric vehicle Nissan Leaf which will help the local police in catching the criminals and thieves red handed.
Superintendent Paul Gomes Valente, National Director of PSP said, “We pride ourselves in being the first police force in the world to incorporate cars with zero-emission technology as part of our 5,000 vehicle fleet.”
He added further,
“We want to continue contributing to the reduction in pollution in large urban centers and the introduction of the 100-percent electric Nissan LEAF sets a new benchmark for our fleet.”
Portugal, is known all over the world for its Electric Vehicles and it was the first to introduce Nissan Leaf to Europe in 2011.
Portugal’s PSP (Polícia de Segurança Pública) is the first security force in the world that will get a fleet of eight Nissan LEAF police cars. These zero emission cars with sirens, flashing blue lights, and apparent ‘Polícia’ markings will be patrolling the streets of Portugal. They will be utilized for the PSP’s Safe School Program and policing the large cities of the country.
