What are your thoughts on buying an ex-police Skoda Octavia?

What do you think about buying an ex-police car? I guess it would be well maintained but possibly hammered? The one I'm looking at is a 2004 Skoda Octavia with 100,000 on the clock.
Who from? If directly from the police force or if from West Oxfordshire Motor Auction's regular ex-police sales, then that makes more sense than buying it from a dealer. An Octavia will be very overdue for a timing belt, tensioner and water pump by 100,000 miles. The police tend to let them go just before a lot of work is needed.
