Marked police van used by Victoria Police, usually a converted commercial vehicle with a reinforced enclosed rear cargo area for holding and transporting offenders to a police station. Abbreviated from the official designation, Divisional van. From a bygone era when Melbourne was divided into police divisions.
I saw the divi van parked outside the Railway Hotel, after hours. The cops were probably inside having a drink with the publican.
