Answered By:

The MPS fleet includes a pool of 31 cars for senior officer use. A vehicle would only be hired when there were no cars available in the existing pool.

In addition, and subject to senior officer approval, vehicles can be hired for a specific activity when there is a clear operational requirement.

No vehicles have been hired for the use of senior officers for either business or private use during the financial year 2013/14.
