What foreing automotive companies manufacture Police Interceptors or Police Patrol Vehicles?

I own my own security company and I am currently looking to replace some of my older Ford PPVs. Ford is a great company, but I am looking for something a bit more reliable- so I guess my question is does Toyota or any other foreign manufactures offer Police Interceptors or Police Patrol Vehicles?

Any suggesttions would be appreciated. (Keep in mind these vehicles would be for a security company so I don't need a BMW, Mercedes, or Lamborghini.)

    There is a security company near my house that patrols over some dirt and gravel roads, and they chose the Toyota Highlander for their main vehicle. The largest highlander engine actually puts out a fair amount of HP, its a fairly good vehicle for multipurpose use, but I don't think it would have the handling capabilities of a Crown Vic, just being so much higher than a squad car. However unless I am mistaken, they just bought a bunch of highlanders and got a local customization shop to outfit them with the amenities they required, I don't think they came that way from the factory.

    Australia is putting out some high power vehicles. In fact the pontiac g6 and gto were actually the australian cars. They're also putting out a v8 Impala for the next cop car. It will have a chevy badge but its a real wheel drive australian. Holden is the name I think.
