Police Forces Wasting Money?!

We live in a time when governments, councils, businesses and individuals are trying to save money, so how come many police forces have endless marked X5s, 5 series, 3 series, etc, etc?

I'm not talking about performance cars used to chase people on motorways, but rather, local vehicles.

All the footage of this current manhunt shows loads of 'posh' police vehicles, and the question always comes into my head that surely they could save a penny or two by getting Freelanders instead of X5s, and getting Insignias (like they used to get Vectras) instead of 5 series, etc?
