Now it seems our boys, and girls, in blue are going green.
The RCIPS has taken delivery of two hybrid ford focus cars as part of a pilot scheme to reduce carbon footprint.
In the coming months, the cars’ performance will be analysed and with a view to introducing more hybrids in the future.
The Ministry of Home Affairs spent almost $700,000 so although they are splashing out on the new cars now, in the long run, they hope to save money.
These vehicles use a mixture of gas and electric to power them.
