A report has been commissioned to inform the PCC and Dorset Police about what energy efficiencies can be made across the Force every year and to improve their carbon footprint.
Dorset Police has a responsibility to minimise the impact they have on the environment which they take very seriously. They work hard to balance the needs of the environment with operational obligations and available resources.
This report was commissioned in line with the 8 pledges that the Commissioner committed to achieving within his first 100 days in office.
This builds upon the good work which was started in July 2015, when Blandford Police station became powered by solar panels. The solar panels on Blandford Police Station save around £1,500 per year in electricity costs. We await the findings of the full report to guide future efforts to achieve further energy efficiencies.
