Metropolitan Police Service Selects Vendors for New Command System

20th Dec 2019

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) in the U.K. selected Leidos to upgrade its command-and-control system responsible for officer deployment. Under the 10-year program, Leidos will deliver a flexible system that captures emergency contacts from the public and coordinates deployment of officers to incidents, pre-planned events, and other operations.

The new system will provide a cloud-based system to help the MPS further drive operational efficiency. Using map-centric software, the MPS will be better able to visualize where officers are located, deploy officers more efficiently, and help keep citizens and visitors of London safe.

Leidos will work with Chaucer Consulting, Frequentis, and Hexagon Safety and Infrastructure to deploy a capability that improves communications 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 program.
