The five blue armored vehicles with the POLICE insignia on the side have been offering their services to the border guards of the Hellenic Police for the last few months. These are vehicles of great capabilities and high safety for the crew.

Their mission is to patrol the banks of the river Evros along the fence, day and night, with the aim of guarding the border and detecting migrant smuggling rings.
