APD Communications

About us

We develop innovative communications software for emergency and critical control rooms in the public and private sectors. Our solutions deliver critical communications across the transportation sector, multiple international airports and major transportation hubs, as well as supporting police and fire services' control rooms. 

From our base in the UK, we serve customers across Europe and the UAE and we're proud to say that one in two UK police forces are using our technology today. Read on to find out more about our products and latest news.

We operate as a business unit within Northgate Public Services, a wholly owned NEC Corporation subsidiary, as part of the NPS Safety Division. 

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.

Working together, our technologies enable the transfer of data from an emergency call in the control room instantly into the hands of a police officer on the street. When that data is then combined with known historical information about the caller or the address, officers have the potential to determine the threat, risk and harm of each incident and respond exactly as needed.

We’re proud of the impact our technologies are having on the emergency services and the public.
