Looks more like riot gear. Anyway, does anyone know what the metalworks in front of the van is for?

Added by Marcel Gommers on 24 September 2009.
Marcel, not 100% sure as I'm not a police car specialist, I think it's like a "battle ram"

Actually this is a Riot Control Personnel Carrier. Used by Light Strike Force or SOC Units.

this thing is called PETRA

Added by PJ on 05 November 2009.
This thing is called PETRA by the police force. Its definitely not for K9. Its for tactical operations eg. riots etc use in neighborhood police officers special tactical team.

The metalworks at the front can be raised lowered and extend to protect officers from stones and stuff.

What Nick mentioned is correct. SOC also have this vehicle. Purpose of use is the same. But widely use in NPCs. Look around at every NPC you will see one.

This photo is labelled incorrectly.

First of all, this location is not Pulau Ubin. this is the carpark of a generic neighbourhood housing estate in Singapore

Secondly, as pointed out, this is a PETRA vehicle. The metalwork in front is for "pushing" or clearing a way through a human obstacle. The side frames swivel 90 degrees and it forms a metal fence.

Putting a few vehicles side-by-side effectively creates a barricade.
