Saving on mealtime costs

"Our local police* have made economies by negotiating subsidised meals with local retailers, such as Morrisons.  This means that for an area such as ours, covering large rural areas, there is no need to return to ‘base’ for meals and thus reduce fuel consumption or down time for patrol cars, with the additional benefit of visible policing in retail premises."

Thanks to North Hertfordshire District Council for this example

  1. A good idea which Tesco has been using for many years but also with free drinks for police on duty.

  2. Thanks Paul for the information. Great that Tesco do it too - do you have a link to their website?
