Area Car

Kelvin 101Added by Kelvin 101
These are saloons like the BMW 5 series or large hatchbacks like the Vauxhall Vectra. They also appear to be mostly manual transmission. Often can be heard screetching to a start when chasing anyone, or in a hurry in general. The call sign for the Area Car is Sierra One.The Area Car is a Police Stations fast response car. It handles urgent 999 calls and car chases as well as providing assistance to other officers. The current area car is the BMW 5 Series.

IRV stand for Incident Response Vehicle, also known as the Panda Car, which is now dispatched by IBO. When the area car is dealing with a crime or is not near enough to deal with the reported crime, the Incident Response Vehicle is a level below the Area Car. It is slower than the Area Car, but does the job at getting from A to B. It can handle emergency calls, assist the Area Car and do general Police activities. IRV's past and present at Sun Hill include Ford Fiestas, Vauxhall Astras and many others.

India 97/99 is the Metropolitan Police Airborne Unit. India 97/99 is called in for searches, major operations, to assist in a chase, or, sometimes to check out large disturbances that Sun Hill cannot reach quickly. It comes with all the standard Police Helicopter gear: Cameras, Infrared Cameras and a big spotlight.

In 2002 during the Sun Hill Race Riots, Thames Television made up India 91 opposed to 97/99 as they only were starting off from the beggining

Police Boats help the Metropolitan Police to patrol the river Thames. They deal with incidents where a Police land vehicle is unable to acces. The River Police do not feture much in The Bill but have been seen on some occasions such as where DS Roach and DC Carver pulled the body of a snout out of the water. (where Jim took one look at the body and was promptly sea sick.)
