IT solutions for Police

Our Blue Light team understands the unique security requirements of UK and Ireland police forces. To support this we have taken innovative approaches to building secure networks, as well as addressing the challenges of body-worn camera data storage and delivering software licensing models. Our Blue Light team also leverages a strategic relationship with Police ICT, fully supporting the National Enabling Programme (NEP).
