Met chooses Keysource to safeguard crime data

Published:  01 April, 2016

The Metropolitan Police Service has awarded the management of two of its critical data centres to Keysource as part of the wider strategic implementation of the force’s technology transformation programme. The Met has identified an efficient IT infrastructure as a key enabler in its One Met transformation programme to deliver its 20:20:20 strategic policy — decrease key crimes by 20%, increase public confidence by 20% and decrease costs by 20%.

The data centres support services such as emergency-service communications (which handle an aver of 6000 999-calls and 15 000 non-emergency calls every day), automatic number-plate recognition (which captures over 38 million plates daily) and the recently introduced body-worn video.

The Keysource contract is designed to support a number of the Metropolitan Police Service’s key objectives — including modernising its IT while reducing costs, improving efficiency, maintaining resilience and delivering energy savings. Operational services include M&E testing and maintenance scheduling.
