Supporting policing in a changing digital world

Technology is creating a more agile digital force

Technology is enabling transformative change in UK policing

Policing is changing. Forces face new challenges from increasingly digital communities. But technology offers new opportunities to gather intelligence, collect and share digital evidence, and better serve the public.

BT is enabling that change through digital transformation. We’re a trusted provider of cost-effective digital solutions for the public sector. And our Connected Policing model will help you collaborate with other forces, empower your officers and prepare your force for a smarter digital future.

Digital technology can improve every aspect of modern policing

In recent years, policing in the UK has become increasingly complex. More services and transactions are taking place online. Cybercrime is growing and becoming more sophisticated. Emerging criminal and terrorist networks need tracking down and halting. Digital evidence is mounting too, from CCTV to phone records. Plus, the public want easy and consistent digital contact with the police.

Making the Policing Vision 2025 a reality

Police and crime commissioners (PCCs), along with chief constables and other policing bodies, have recognised the need for transformative change. Their Policing Vision 2025 recommends using digital technology to better serve the public.

Our digital technology can bring the Policing Vision 2025 to life. Making huge changes, with limited resources, and without reducing the quality of service, is a tough call. When you’re facing such challenges, we’re a powerful partner.

How can we help?

We’re at the forefront of connectivity and digital technology in the UK. We’re committed to working with police forces to plan effective and accessible services that also give you value for money. We’ll do all we can to help implement the changes needed to meet the 2025 vision.
