Motor Vehicle

The Chief Constable may authorise an officer who in his opinion that it is essential or desirable to have a motor vehicle at his disposal at all times to use his own motor vehicle for the purposes of duties performed by him and will pay the officer a motor vehicle allowance.

A policy of motor insurance approved by the police authority is required before the vehicle can be used for police business.
