Police Scotland is to install more than 1,000 new electric vehicle charging points as it moves to make its entire fleet electric.
The BP Chargemaster units will be installed at 265 locations over the length and breadth of Scotland, including 35 ultra-fast chargers, making Police Scotland one of the first fleets in the UK to introduce this level of charging technology.
Deputy Chief Constable Will Kerr said: “Police Scotland's Fleet Strategy is highly ambitious, with the aim of having the UK's first ultra-low emission blue light fleet by 2030. This substantial contract marks a major step towards that goal by making ULEVs accessible to more of our officers and staff.
“Achieving our Fleet Strategy aims will significantly reduce carbon emissions, while also reducing maintenance and servicing costs.”
The Police Scotland contract is the second countrywide public sector fleet contract awarded to BP Chargemaster in Scotland, following the start of a charging infrastructure rollout for the Scottish Ambulance Service, with 35 sites already completed and 34 more now underway.
