WTF Is This And Why Has It Got A Blue Light On It!?
One of our eagle-eyed followers sent us a screenshot of what appears to be a ‘Securitas’ vehicle that has been spotted not only with blue lights but also with police Battenburg markings!
Of course, you would be forgiven for thinking that it is a police car, but it isn’t.
So that begs the question; what is it, and what is it doing!?
As far as we know, it is not a ‘prop’ that is to be used on a police drama.
It has the words ‘Plant Protector’ on it, but which plants is it protecting and from what/who!? (both the vegetation and mechanical versions of ‘plant’).
And although the caption says that the vehicle is a ‘security car’ from Vauxhall, the last time I checked, Securitas was not connected with/to Vauxhall.
I might be missing something really obvious here.
But to me, it just looks like the first example I have seen of a private security vehicle being made to look like a genuine police car.
And, if that is the case, then those of us who have been worried about ‘proper’ policing roles being contracted out to private firms, will start to feel a tad nervous.
Anyway, 300,000 minds are better than five, so we are confident that our followers will be able to fill us in when it comes to working out what the heck is going on.
So if you know what’s going on, then please feel free to leave a comment in the comments section below so we do not go to bed tonight worrying about private security personnel darting around in blue-light vehicles!
