You could try under the "Employment" tab top right, or google your local force who will have a website with contact details, or look under 'links' tab which may give you the police force detail;s you need.

I don't know about other forces, but all our mechanical matters are outsourced to whatever garage puts in the best tender bid.

Why the police in particular OP? Isn't an engine an engine anywhere?

It's quite a different scenario in a workshop such as the Police, Fire service (my personal favourite due to the variety of vehicles) etc.

Unike a commercial garage you are not under pressure to "sell" parts, extra services etc. ("Our new fuel treatment may increase your MPG and power! blah, blah, blah")

You fit predominantly O.E. parts to vehicles that are regularly maintained, not the usual sh*te heaps on the road. Latest diagnostic equipment and up to date kit. There's lots of reasons to work in a Police garage, including the EVO X test drives. Big%20smile

I can see the value of keeping garages, and wish our force had done so, as the standard of our vehicles now they only get a yearly service is shocking!

However, I'll be surprised if other forces keep them to be honest.

We don't even have our own pool cars anymore, a deal was struck with local car hire firms and they are used for trips away and even for major incidents for the D's drafted in.

Police vehicles are unique in a number of ways. The abuse they get during the course of a year, different drivers, all the added extras on them compared to a standard vehicle. They need specialist care only a Police vehicle workshop can offer. It's utter madness for a Force NOT to have it's own workshops. Essex used to have a good spread of workshops that were well looked after, I hope it hasn't changed as I would consider it a valuable asset.
