Metropolitan Police Appoints Leidos to Upgrade Command and Control System for Officer Deployment

Leidos has been appointed by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to upgrade its Command and Control system responsible for officer deployment. Under the 10-year program, Leidos will deliver a flexible system that captures emergency contacts from the public and subsequently coordinates deployment of officers to incidents, pre-planned events, and other operations.

The new cloud-based Command and Control system is designed to help the MPS to further drive operational efficiency. Using map-centric software, the MPS will be better able to visualize where officers are located, deploy officers more efficiently, and help keep citizens and visitors of London safe. Leidos will work with Chaucer Consulting, Frequentis, and Hexagon Safety and Infrastructure to deploy a capability that improves communication and information sharing between police and other emergency services. The new team will deliver a flexible system that can be scaled and enhanced so that the MPS can meet the needs of the public through the life of the program.

Leidos is already working with the Home Office to transition, operate and transform critical elements of the U.K.’s national biometrics systems in support of law enforcement, immigration services, and border security. Additionally, Leidos is working with the Ministry of Defence to deliver a multi-billion pound logistics contract to manage the procurement, storage and distribution of essential military equipment and supplies.
