Sussex Police and Chandlers BMW have been awarded TyreSafe’s outstanding achievement accolade for 2012.
Chris Downes from Chandlers BMW and Phil Barrow from Sussex Police collected the award at the Tyre Recovery Association’s annual dinner held at the Ardencote Hotel, Warwickshire.
The honour is in particular recognition of their joint collaboration during last October’s Tyre Safety Month when they arranged a series of tyre safety roadshows at local supermarkets, shopping centres and Chandler’s very own Hailsham dealership. Additionally, they gained some valuable media coverage beyond the county’s borders because of their endeavours, helping to further increase awareness about tyre safety issues.
Stuart Jackson, chairman, TyreSafe, said: "By working together Sussex Police and Chandlers BMW have made an important contribution to tyre safety on the south coast.
"It’s a tremendous example of what can be done with limited resources but a lot of imagination. In this instance it’s definitely a case that two heads are better than one."
