Incident management firm FMG has been appointed to recover around 4,000 vehicles per year on behalf of Lincolnshire Police. The Huddersfield based business will manage the recovery of vehicles that have been stolen or involved in collisions, as well as those involved in crime and being driven with no insurance.
FMG already manages similar contracts for other police forces across the country, including Lancashire, Cumbria, North Wales and Norfolk and has shown the efficiency and professionalism demanded by the often challenging situations encountered.
Integrated services contract manager at Lincolnshire Police, Gail Bradshaw said: “FMG have proven themselves at the highest level, and we’re delighted to be able to work with them on this contract. Dealing with vehicles, and vehicle crime, takes up a considerable amount of police time, and knowing that vehicles will be recovered and managed efficiently will mean that our officers and staff will have more time to carry out other duties.”
FMG has a strong background in providing comprehensive services for public sector organisations, having recently been re-awarded a major contract with the Highways Agency to deal with incidents across the 4,300miles of England’s strategic road network.
Jerry Bartlett, head of police schemes at FMG said, “We’re delighted that we’ve been awarded this contract to do an important job for a vital public service provider. This is testament to the hard work our people have done on managing existing contracts and demonstrating best practice in this unique area of vehicle recovery.
The new contract went live on October 1st.
