Hampshire Cops blue spark turns green

Police are known as the boys and girls in blue but that isn’t stopping us from going green.

Today we can announce that we are driving forward with an innovative plan that can revolutionise police fleets across the UK, saving millions of pounds.

The force has been given the green light to transform its general fleet of cars from petrol engines to electric.

We are the first non-metropolitan police force in the country to make the ground breaking change and will result in an initial £450,000 saving over three years.

The pioneering plan to go green has proved so effective that other forces across the country are now looking to do the same.
