Northgate Public Services acquires APD Communications to improve information sharing between emergency services control rooms and our streets

8th Jan 2019

Northgate Public Services (NPS), a wholly owned NEC Corporation subsidiary, has today announced the acquisition of APD Communications, a leading software supplier to the emergency services, public safety and control room markets.

NPS is the market leader for policing IT solutions in the UK with more than 50% of police forces currently using NPS’ crime, custody and intelligence management system, CONNECT, to manage information on victims and crimes.

APD provides mission critical communications and control solutions used by more than two thirds of UK police forces as well as major transportation hubs and airports, including Gatwick and Dubai international airports and the London Underground.

The potential for these two sets of technologies to be brought together could bring untold benefits to the emergency services and the public.
