The new Vauxhall/Opel Astra is ready to enter Police service with the potential for the highest level of integration with emergency service systems.

The Astra has been the backbone of policing across 54 UK Police forces since it was first launched in 1979.

Approximately 20% of all local patrol cars in use across the UK are Astras, with many of them equipped by Vauxhall's turnkey Police preparation facility; Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).

Based at Millbrook, SVO receives vehicles direct from the factory, builds them to the required specification and then delivers the completed car to the constabulary.

The arrival of the new generation Astra allows another step along the path of integration of the emergency-services functions into the base vehicle. From launch, the Astra will be available with an instrument console incorporating integrated switch panels configured for Police radio units.

The new Astra also features increased capacity for fitting further equipment, such as mobile data terminals, video capture and multiple transceivers without the need for custom installations.

The typical range of emergency services lighting options are also available including a range of LED lightbars, headlamp flash, grille lights, bumper interceptor lights and rear reds.

To ensure the dependability and reliability demanded of a law enforcement vehicle, the Astra and its systems have undergone a rigorous test program. Physical rig testing was used to replicate a lifetime of structural inputs into the vehicle, which in addition to other physical tests and computer simulations, resulted in Vauxhall's most comprehensive validation of any product for the emergency services.
