The Officer in Charge of Traffic Operations, Sergeant Rod Anderson, said the extended trial would enable a full
assessment of the S60’s capabilities.
“Police vehicles are required to perform to a high level in dynamic, high stress environments. By doing this trial
we can obtain direct feedback from our officers on how the S60 performs under various driving conditions. We are
particularly interested in our officers’ opinions on the all-wheel drive capability of the S60 and what advantages it
offers over our current rear-wheel drive fleet.”
Volvo Car Australia Managing Director, Kevin McCann, said: “Volvo has a proven track record in supplying highway
surveillance and rapid response vehicles to police forces around the world, including Sweden, Belgium, The Netherlands,
Switzerland and the UK.”
“The S60 T6 R-Design is a high performance sedan with a range of active and passive safety features such as
Adaptive Cruise Control with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection to protect both drivers and other road users. We look
forward to working closely with ACT Police to assess the S60’s suitability to meet its operational requirements.”
