PCC John Campion is pleased to work alongside the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership (MHAONB) to help fund a new e-bike for the local Police team.
In a bid to support local police to be visible and accessible to communities, and reduce the impact of policing on our environment, Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion and the Malvern Hills AONB have worked in partnership to fund a new e-bike that will be used by the local SNTs to patrol the hills.
This new addition will allow officers to access hard to reach places more easily. All while playing their part in being more sustainable.
PCC John Campion said: “I have listened to the communities when they said they want to see their officers more visible within their community, and there is no doubt that this bike will help with that.
I have also committed to reducing the carbon footprint from policing, and this is one way I am delivering on that commitment. ‘’
Paul Esrich, manager of the Malvern Hills AONB team said: “We want to encourage people to enjoy the outdoors in a safe and responsible way. Our sustainable development fund supports projects which make a difference to the wildlife, heritage and communities of the Malvern Hills Area Of Natural Beauty and we’re really pleased that, along with the Police and Crime Commissioner, we are able to provide a grant towards an e-bike for our local police.”
