Never really gave much thought to prisoner transport since I don't really plan on being inside one ever, but I guess these vehicles are used a lot (especially in the USA.) Now the Ford Transit has been shown as a Prisoner Transport Vehicle Concept.
The concept was jointly developed by Pennsylvania-based Havis Prisoner Transport Solutions. Ford didn't have too much to say about it, but they did say that it can carry as many as 12 prisoners in three compartments. Have to wonder how much space each one of them will get though.
The cabin is equipped with a police radio and a special control panel that controls things like flood lights and gun locks.
Ford police marketing manager Jonathan Honeycutt said, "The Transit PTV is the latest example of Ford’s deep commitment to helping provide law enforcement agencies with capable vehicles. This concept proves Transit is upfit-ready and designed to Built Ford Tough standards.”
