SPAIN’S Policia Nacional have unveiled their new high-tech vehicles which will make catching criminals that much easier.
The new Toyota Prius + cars have been specially equipped with three state-of-the-art cameras, capable of checking 400 license plates against the stolen database per minute.
The first batch of 10 will be sent to Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, Zaragoza, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Vigo this week, with 152 to be rolled out by 2020.
Branded as Zetas, the vehicles are packed full of technology which allows them to act as ‘mobile police stations’.
This includes a built-in fingerprint reader which will check if a suspect is on the wanted database or if they are known to police with a record.
It can also analyse IDs and passports.
A 10-inch screen also allows police to consult with headquarters and access data while on the move.
The three cameras, meanwhile, will constantly capture images and video, with sound, which will be stored for 30 days.
