Seven XFs patrolling across Staffordshire, Mercia and the West Midlands

The first Jaguar XF police patrol cars have taken to the roads.

The police-spec XF S diesel is fitted with a roof-mounted light bar that has 3600 blue flashing lights, while further lights are integrated into the standard front and rear lighting systems.

A Home Office-specification electronics pack ensures that the additional lighting and communications equipment are fully powered. Beyond that and the addition of a police livery, the cars are standard.

The first batch of seven Jaguar XF S diesels are now patrolling motorways across Staffordshire, Mercia and the West Midlands.

Our Verdict

The Jaguar XF is a sublime British executive saloon. It has a tremendous interior and even greater dynamics

Ive seen a couple already round by me. Good to see the police buying British cars again.

Good to see that the recession has not affected Police Forces' ability to drive some of the nicest cars around !! Now I know why the policing part of my council tax has gone up by an inflation busting 5%+. Just a bit more evidence of NuLab's "spend, spend, spend" policy to beat the "economic downturn".

Whilst it is a fair point about Labour waste that makes police forces buy £40k off roaders and sports saloons ... but I would rather they bought Ranger Rovers, Discos and XF's thatn X5's, 5 Series and Mercs.

What would the alternative be? The common brands don't make the rear drives cars the police prefer .... although the size of Isignia's and Mondeos is now the same as the old Omega's and Scorpios ..... none of these 4 cars are or were made in Britian anyway.

So go ahead and buy British .... and for panda cars ... buy something made in Britian also ... this country needs to wise up.

I thought the police used to have a £20K limit, that's why the old ST220 was a favourite, looks like the boom has hit the police forces but theyhave yet to do the bust bit.

Beautifully put. This type of response is all that needs to be said about this sickening story.

If any of the pathetic legalised joy-riders that call themselves Traffic Police are reading this: enjoy your flash cock-bulge motors while you can, because now that Brown, with his 'bigot' exposé, has made clear to even the densest of voters the contempt he has for the 'people' he likes to speak for, the Conservatives will not only sell your Jaguar XFs, they'll sell your Lamborghini Gallardos that patrol the City of London making all the high-end dolly-birds squirt with excitement.

Of course, if Father Ted Clegg gets in, he'll need something bigger than a long-wheelbase Jag to accommodate his massive doo-dar, the waving of which seems to be the only reason why he's suddenly so popular. Obviously sleaze is no longer a barrier to political success, since the party funding resting in Father Ted's private account and the stolen £2.5m donated, by a fraudster who's now on the run, to the Liberals doesn't seem to have effected their deification at all.

I want my country's police to replace the Citroen Xsara and Skoda Octavia police cars with an XF or a series 5 now

Saw two police XFs last Wednesday, one on the M5 Birmingham (where you'd expect), but more of surprise was the other XF at Dinas Mawddwy (Gwynedd). Maybe North Wales Police are evaluating the XF.

I thought there was a recession on just now?, what's the real reason for the Police using Jaguars?
