The BMW R 1200 GS assists the drugs squad of the Turkish police with their work.

Opening ceremony of the NTP

Ankara, 11/12/2014

In a bid to combat drug trafficking in Turkey more effectively, the department which used to have combined responsibility for drugs and organised crime has now been split up.

At a ceremony in the capital of Ankara, the “Narcoteam” was introduced as part of the newly established drugs squad, which is now separate.

The celebrations were held under the auspices of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

The “Narcoteam” (“narco” from “narcotics”) uses the R 1200 GS from BMW Motorrad, for example in narrow streets too small for cars or in situations where cars would look conspicuous.
