Last week Surrey Police came into The Ashley Centre in Epsom to receive four brand new bicycles donated by the shopping centre as part of the centre’s continued commitment to bringing awareness of global warming, benefits of recycling, zero to landfill and reducing our carbon footprint.
The bikes allow officers to do more on their shifts, covering more ground and visiting more people than if they were on foot. They help police to be visible to the public, while also being approachable.
Ashley Centre Manager David Beddows said: As part of commitment to green issues we have sponsored four police bikes which I am delighted to be donating to our local police force on behalf of the Centre. We are really pleased that these bicycles will help officers do their job even more efficiently and effectively.”
Neighbourhood Commander Craig Knight said: "I am absolutely delighted to accept these bikes as sponsored vehicles from The Ashley Centre here at Epsom. Police work really closely with partners in crime prevention and the benefits of this sort of sponsorship are enormous. It allows us to patrol alleys, bridleways, roads and areas of open space in a much more efficient manner. It can also reduce our use of motor vehicles and as result reduce our carbon footprint. In addition the fact that these are sponsored vehicles means that valuable tax payers money is spent more effectively on front line policing here in Surrey. Can I thank The Ashley Centre for providing this valuable asset to policing the Borough of Epsom & Ewell."
