Lately, police forces around the world have been seriously stepping their games up.

Turkey recently impounded 23 luxury vehicles from criminals, including a Porsche Taycan and a Bentley Continental, and added them to its fleet.

And Saudi Arabia’s police cars will soon all be Lucid Air EVs.

The police force of Dubai is already well-known for its impressive supercar lineup.

There’s their jet car, which can travel at high speeds on water, as well as their $260,000 Lamborghini Urus.

A Bentley Continental worth $300,000 and a Bugatti Veyron also sits in the force’s garage.

The latest addition is a McLaren Artura, the only one in the world to be part of a police force.

It’s one of the fastest cars on the market, with a top speed of 205mph and the ability to reach 60mph in three seconds.

The high-performance hybrid supercar has a starting price of $238,000.

This marks a partnership with McLaren Dubai and Dubai Police.

“The McLaren Artura is an ideal example of the state-of-the-art technologies and exceptional performance in vehicles deployed by Dubai’s Police Officers in their mission to ensure public safety,” said Lt Gen Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police.

The car will be in service around popular areas, like Downtown and Jumeirah, giving tourists another amazing sight to take photos of in Dubai.

People on the internet have been brainstorming ways to get a glance at the unique police supercar.

“Are they hiring?” one commenter said.

“Please arrest me,” another commenter said.
