Armed Response Vehicles get poppy paint job
Small but important act
To commemorate Armistice Day some police cars have got a new decorative poppy to their paint work.
Remembering the thousands of casualties of World War I, the fleet of seven Armed Response Vehicles (ARVs) adopted the sticker after the idea was suggested by an armed officer.
“This felt very fitting with it being the RAF’s centenary year and 100 years since the end of the First World War, and no doubt our ARVs will be present and visible at the upcoming Remembrance and RAF100 parades,” said Steve Cooper, Assistant Chief Constable from Nottinghamshire Police.
He added: “We have a very close relationship with our colleagues in the military, past and present, with a number of our ranks being ex-armed forces, and we remember those who lost their lives and those who continue to put themselves in danger for our country.”
