Thanks to Honda Australia, the New South Wales Police Force has been given the new hot hatch for the next 12 months for promotional duties. Set to be utilized in the ‘Eyewatch’ social media initiative that aims to connect people with local police forces, the car is one of the tools that will try to encourage citizens to be active participants in making their communities safer.

“The Civic Type R has been engineered from the ground up to deliver the most rewarding driving experience in the hot hatch segment. It has proven to be immensely popular with customers, enthusiasts and the motoring media, so we’re positive the NSW Police Force will find it to be a great community engagement tool.

“At Honda we believe in the power of helping others, so this sponsored partnership with the NSW Police Force aligns seamlessly with work of The Honda Foundation and its goal of making a difference in the lives of people through giving back to the community that supports them,” Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins said.
