Our COVID-19 technology response group has been set up to support forces experiencing the following challenges:
- Remote connectivity – capacity of connections & infrastructure due to demand from remote working
- Supply chain availability – laptops, batteries etc
- Operational issues resulting from multi-agency working
We do this by engaging with market leaders to leverage the supply base to meet policing needs.
If you would like information about the supplier offers available to policing, if you have specific requirements or have identified a problem common to several forces that we may be able to help with, please contact us.
COVID-19 Technology Response Knowledge Hub Group
Those working for a UK policing organisation can also register with the Knowledge Hub and ask to join the COVID-19 Technology Response Group to receive updates directly.
The global pandemic has illustrated that policing does not operate in a vacuum when it comes to delivering public services. Policing Insight’s Publisher Bernard Rix looks at how one supplier worked with UK police forces, the Police ICT Company and the National Police Technology Council to ensure previously office-based work could be rapidly undertaken by police officers and staff in their own homes.
