Volvo S70 Police Car

September 3, 1998 Aylmer, Québec

After hearing that the city of Aylmer Québec, had purchased 2 Volvo S70 sedans as replacement police cars, I couldn't resist paying them a visit. Michel Labelle, Sécurité Publique, Division police, Ville d'Aylmer was most helpful in allowing me to shoot the following images. As well, M. Labelle told me many facts and considerations he made in recommending the purchase of the S70 Volvo. Since General Motors no longer supplies factory police vehicles, the only remaining alternatives are Ford and Volvo. The S70 Swedish built Volvo was chosen for many reasons: As well, the S70 was equipped with many standard features that didn't exist or were optional on the Ford: The S70 has been brought up to Aylmer standards with the addition of a front "push" bar and a rear hitch for holding a bicycle rack. The electronics package to control communications and the roof lights have been installed inside the engine compartment and the trunk, without loosing any storage space. The S70 is being used by at least 3 other Quebéc police departments and other police forces are monitoring the success of Alymer. As well, I understand that the Halton Regional police department in southern Ontario have also bought S70 police cars.
