A Met Police car serving the Darwin and Biggin Hill Wards joins the force today after a launch with new sponsor Biggin Hill Airport earlier in the week.

The Hyundai i30 with London Biggin Hill Airport logos on the rear doors was positioned at the airport for the handover of keys by airport MD Will Curtis to Inspector Ian Brown from Bromley Police.   PC Gabriella Pattinson of the local Safer Neighbourhoods Police Team, who will be one of the regular drivers of the vehicle, was also present.  They were accompanied by Kevin Mooney, Chairman of the Darwin Ward panel.  The car was provided by Allan White Motors.

Speaking at the launch ceremony amongst corporate jet aircraft at the airport, Will Curtis said “We welcome this valuable opportunity to support the work of the Met Police in the Darwin and Biggin Hill Wards.  Additionally it will provide a boost to the ongoing relationship between our airport security team and their local Met Police counterparts”

Inspector Ian Brown said “I would like to thank Biggin Hill Airport, Allan White Motors and the local community for their support for the local Safer Neighbourhoods Team.  I would also like to thank Kevin Mooney, Chair of the Darwin Panel, for his endeavours in securing Biggin Hill Airport as sponsors”

“Safer Neighbourhoods Teams play a big part in helping maintain the quality of life in their communities, providing a police presence, response and reassurance and this car will make a huge difference both to the team and to the residents” Inspector Brown said.
