New Straits Times - - Business -

KUALA LUMPUR: Fleet man­age­ment com­pany Spanco Sdn Bhd has de­liv­ered four lead Pro­ton Preve 1.6 sedans to the Pris­ons Depart­ment.

These ve­hi­cles will be used by the Ka­jang, Sun­gai Bu­loh, Se­berang Perai and Kota Kin­a­balu pris­ons.

The new Preve 1.6 re­placed the old fleet of Pro­ton Waja used by the pris­ons, said Spanco in a state­ment.

Spanco chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Hamzah Mohd Salleh pre­sented the cars to the com­mis­sioner gen­eral of Pris­ons Datuk Seri Zulk­i­fli Omar at a cer­e­mony re­cently.

Hamzah said the cars had been up­graded to en­hance the depart­ment’s im­age and ef­fi­ciency.

The Preves are equipped with slim­mer and brighter in­te­grated light sound sys­tem as well as im­proved loud speaker and siren, com­pared with the pre­vi­ous mod­els.

They would be used to es­cort pris­on­ers, es­pe­cially those with high pro­file cases, to hospi­tals or courts through­out the coun­try, he added.
