North Yorkshire Police give transport tips to American audience
8:44am Thursday 9th August 2012 in News
American transport bosses have called on North Yorkshire Police’s expertise in fleet management.
Richard Flint, the force’s head of transport, has been invited to address 700 delegates at the North American Fleet Managers’ conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, for a three-day conference later this month.
Mr Flint, who is also the chairman of the National Association of Police Fleet Managers, will give a presentation on his work, which has improved efficiency and helped to reduce carbon emissions by switching to diesel vehicles across the North Yorkshire Police fleet.
He said: “This is a unique opportunity to share best practice on a global scale and at the same time, bring innovation and ideas back to the UK.
“We will use it to improve not only the North Yorkshire Police’s fleet management, but that of the rest of the UK police forces.”
A new regional link-up with other forces in the Yorkshire and Humber region is set to save £7 million over the next four years, by sharing resources and services between the four forces.
