Providing support services for Devon and Cornwall Police

For Devon and Cornwall Police, getting the right IT support at the right cost was key to keeping their community safe. They protect an ageing population, in one of the UK's largest beats. And they deal with 10 million visitors each summer.

In a landmark contract, we took over the force’s IT infrastructure. We also provided them with technical support, for less. This freed up funds to reinvest in serving the public.

We now develop the force’s IT services and provide vital support to staff and officers, 24/7. And with the right technology, they can work together more effectively. It also means they’re able to tackle bigger projects, like working closely with Dorset Police.

“For me what BT brings is clearly innovation, ambition and a desire to make a difference.”
