Chaucer To Support Leidos UK In Metropolitan Police Command And Control System Upgrade
Chaucer, a UK leading digital transformation consultancy, today announced it will support Leidos UK in the recently announced upgrade to the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) command and control system.
Under the 10-year programme, Leidos will implement Hexagons OnCall dispatch system and the Frequentis LifeX multimedia communication platform, to deliver a system that captures emergency contacts from the public and subsequently coordinates deployment of officers to incidents, pre-planned events and other operations.
Responsible for the protection of eight million citizens, the MPS will improve information sharing and collaboration with other emergency services to achieve greater connectivity, collaboration and intelligence for keeping citizens and visitors of London safe. In addition to Chaucer, Leidos will work with Hexagon and Frequentis to deploy a capability that improves communication and information sharing between police and other emergency services. The new team will deliver a flexible system that can be scaled and enhanced so that the MPS can meet the needs of the public through the life of the programme.
"We are delighted to be partnering with Leidos, Frequentis and Hexagon to deliver the new Command and Control system for the Metropolitan Police Service. The new Command and Control system will not only help keep London safe, but it will improve the lives of our emergency services and its citizens. It’s an exciting time for everyone involved in the project." Chris Laslett, CEO, Chaucer.
