The Slovakian Ministry of Defence has handed over 21 new pick-up vehicles to the country's military police force.

The vehicles have been procured under a wider modernisation effort. Military police will use the new vehicles for incident response to support investigation teams, crime technicians, military working dog handlers and patrol teams as they conduct preventive law enforcement, inspections of offence and crime scenes, detection and collection of trace evidence and patrol.

Peter Gajdoš, Defence Minister of Slovakia, said: ‘Our soldiers and military policemen, who are very well trained for their job, need modern and reliable equipment in order to perform their tasks. And our task is to provide them with such equipment. I am very pleased to have handed over new vehicles to military policemen, to replace the old ones whose cost of repairs would have exceeded their residual value.’
