  • Volvo squad car?

    Watching some recent episodes of LivePD, I noticed Berkeley County (SC) Sheriff's Office was using Volvo sedans as squad cars. A quick bit of Googling showed Volvo's U.S. factory is located in Berkeley County. I've seen this in the past where auto manufacturers will offer vehicles to local LE for free (I recall Mercedes doing that with their SUVs in Alabama years ago).

    I'm curious to know if anyone knows if Volvo's making an actual bid for the squad car market, or if it's just a way for them to get their cars some free exposure.

    Many agencies have experimented with different car manufacturers - Toyota & Volvo to name a few.

    Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere

      I've never heard of Volvo courting the LE market but, perhaps they are testing the waters. Another PD in my county drove Volvos for years -- they got them from their local Volvo dealer. I don't know if they were donated, or purchased at a significantly reduced price.
