Police fleet managers meet for annual conference

The National Association of Police Fleet Managers will be holding its annual conference & exhibition at the Exec Exhibition Centre, East of England Show Ground, Peterborough on September 7 and 8.

This event now in its 37th year and is recognised as an important shop window in the emergency service transport sector.

The NAPFM event is and has been for many years all about collaboration and standardisation.

Following the introduction last year of an ambulance exhibition within the NAPFM Event, Ambulex 2010, organised by Rescroft Ltd, once again will provide a specialist area devoted to the needs of the ambulance sector.

Mike Cripps the NAPFM event manager said “The NAPFM event has for many years encouraged our exhibitors to display vehicles relevant to all the emergency Services. This event and the work of the NAPFM is clearly what the Government had in mind when it talks about collaboration and standardisation.”

There will be 150 exhibitors who supply vehicles, equipment and services to the police, fire and ambulance services. On display will be around 300 vehicles representing all forms of transport from bikes to fast response vehicles and vans to large commercial vehicles.

The standardisation of vehicles will be even more evident shortly after the conference when the new national vehicle framework agreements are announced.

During the conference the Association of Chief Police Officer’s Vehicle Standardisation Group will also be meeting to discuss the latest developments.

Running alongside the exhibition will be the annual NAPFM conference.

The conference will be opened by David Ainsworth, the Deputy Chief Constable of Wiltshire, who is the ACPO lead on national and international vehicle crime who will be addressing the delegates on this subject.

The event is not open to the public.
