Officials
Explanation:
"Work vehicles (for staff support and those distributed to officials)".

O inglês usa menos palavras para dizer a mesma coisa. Variações:
PODE OMITIR \"work, working = utilitários\", que se entende perfeitamente.
NÃO PRECISA REPETIR a palavra \"viatura\", já que está em parêntisis.
TITULAR DE CARGO DE FUNÇÃO = \"an official\" (isso parece coisa de funcionalismo público, portanto é \"an official\", se fosse firma particular, seria \"executive\", etc.

Chosen for its conciseness. I might even ditch the word 'work', as it's obvious from the context. Translating verbose texts presents problems of selecting which bits to cut out. My confusion arose from the fact that I couldn't see the difference bteween the titulares... and the rest of the staff. But 'officials' at least offers some difference.
Thanks for your help
