Devon and Cornwall Police recently signed a contract with BT for the provision of its IT infrastructure and support services
Devon and Cornwall Police face challenges to respond to a vast rural and coastal area, which increases by 10 Million visitors over the summer months. This creates a huge demand on their services both in traditional crime on the beat and around the new areas of cyber-crime.
With changes in society the young and old are a new focus for crime, Devon and Cornwall police are looking to technology as the enabler - the “digital beat” to keep vulnerable people safe and bring offenders to justice.
As a result they have contracted with BT for the provision of its ICT managed service desk. Its’ aim is to enhance the 24 hour support given to IT systems and give a more robust support to policing and allow significant savings to their service costs, that will be reinvested to improve services to the public.
For me what BT brings is clearly innovation, ambition and a desire to make a difference
