To Protect and Serve

Lego Technic Police Car

With The Lego Car Blog’s home nation victim of a terror attack this week we’re acknowledging the incredible work that our emergency services perform in the face of horrific acts of violence. NHS paramedics, doctors, nurses, cleaners and caterers, bomb disposal teams, the Greater Manchester Police, and of course the people of Manchester, demonstrated the very best of British society in the aftermath of the May 22nd attack.

Our police officers don’t get to drive big RWD V8-engined sedans, although their fast-response BMW, Audi and Volvo diesels look quite fun, but they’re the backbone of the US and Australian forces’ fleets.

Big, wallowing, and not actually that fast, RWD V8 sedans really aren’t suited to European policing, but that doesn’t stop them being – at least to our eyes – quite cool.

This neat generic Police Interceptor comes from previous bloggee pipasseyoyo, and it features the obligatory V8 engine hooked up to a four-speed gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, working suspension and steering, opening hood, trunk and doors, and a deployable spike-strip to apprehend the bad guys.

There’s more of pipasseyoyo’s Technic Police Interceptor to see at his Brickshelf album via the link above, and if you’re reading this and represent one of the emergency services, wherever you are; thank you.
