The first batch of the total of 30 Land Rover Defender cars will provide the Czech police with a more civilian off-road design with off-road equipment.
This week, the police seized the top ten of the total of 30 modified Land Rover Defender 110 cars, which will be delivered to them by Dajbych, a well-known Czech dealer, manufacturer of off-road vehicles and authorized dealer of this British brand.
Most of the cars will be used mainly for overseas missions to protect the external borders of the European Union, but some will also perform missions in the Czech Republic. Their primary task will be to enable police officers to move quickly even in hard-to-reach areas.
„We consider similar off-road vehicles as a necessary part of the equipment of the police of the Czech Republic, because police officers who perform their tasks in hard-to-reach areas and difficult terrain must have the appropriate equipment at their disposal. Having vehicles that allow us to operate both in mountainous regions and foothills, but also that we can send them to foreign missions without fear, is an absolute foundation for us,The head of the police press department, Colonel Dr. Ph.D. Ondřej Moravčík

In the field, they offer higher-than-standard parameters, such as a ground clearance of 291 mm, wading in water 90 cm, approach angles of 37.5 ° / 28 ° / 40 ° or a Terrain Response system with a reducer gearbox and a differential lock between the rear axle and rear differential lock.
