Constables in Hertfordshire in the U.K. have taken delivery of a new Toyota Prius
T3 to use in daily "nuisance patrols". The Prius
is the first hybrid
the Hertfordshire police are using and was donated by the Toyota dealer
in nearby Watford. The police will be using the green machine on daily drives to help combat "anti-social behaviour", which is not more fully defined by Toyota
in their press release. The dealer who donated the car is more gregarious, though, saying "As a fledgling business in Watford, we are pleased to show our support for the local community by offering a tangible resource. I have no doubt the Prius will live up to the demands placed on it."
