Suffolk: Constabulary add Norfolk Police branding to cars in joint livery scheme
NEARLY 30 per cent of Suffolk and Norfolk police vehicles will be re-branded with a joint livery, if the counties’ police authorities approve the move.
Currently the two forces have 449 marked vehicles, 127 of which are considered suitable for joint branding due to their potential for cross-border usage.
The proposal, which is due to go before Suffolk Police Authority tomorrow, is said to promote public reassurance relating to the collaboration between both constabularies.
The cost of changing the vehicles’ livery is around �10,000.
The move is part of a closer working alliance driven by the need for cost-cutting, with Suffolk needing to save more than �17million over four years.
A spokesman for Suffolk police said: “There are some vehicles being used by collaborative units across both counties, such as the dog section, that would be suitable for joint branding to reflect our joint working arrangements.
“It is important to note the delivery of our local policing service, through our neighbourhood and response teams, is not part of the collaborative programme.”
