New £1m joint command vehicle for fire and police

The wheels are in motion for the construction of a joint command vehicle for police and fire services in Northamptonshire, which it is believed will be the only one of its kind in the UK.

The new vehicle, which will be run by Northamptonshire Police and Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS), will provide a base for commanders when in attendance at large scale or major incidents.

The tender for its construction has now been awarded to John Dennis Coachbuilders, Spectra Specialist Engineering Ltd and Excelerate Technology, who will work together to build and equip the unit.

It is expected that the vehicle will be completed and officially launched in September 2016.
