NSW Police get a BMW i8 plug-on hybrid…
The NSW Police in Rose Bay have taken delivery of a BMW i8 plug-in hybrid for “community engagement” duties.
FOLLOWING THE RECENT recruiting of an Audi A7 to the NSW Police, a BMW i8 plug-in hybrid has joined the Force as a community engagement tool. It was handed over by BMW Sydney today to Police Commander, Superintendent Bradley Hodder.
“This BMW is the latest in a number of different vehicles that we have utilised at Rose Bay Local Area Command to raise awareness and engage with the community.
“It is a great community engagement tool that will be used at a number of police events to showcase the role police play in the community.
“Rose Bay LAC is very appreciative of the support provided by BMW Sydney and the Rose Bay Chamber of Commerce. This initiative is highly regarded and this vehicle, on loan to the Police Force at no expense to the tax payer, is another example of this support for community engagement,” Superintendent Hodder said.
The BMW i8 will assume its new role within the squad effective immediately, making regular appearances at community events to boost the department’s profile.
“This vehicle loan is comprehensively covered by BMW Sydney and at no cost to the tax payer,” BMW said.
