The Metropolitan Police Service is a Ready Organisation
For the UK’s oldest and largest police service, Being Ready means using iPads and our increased 4G coverage to spend more time on the beat.
The Metropolitan Police employs thousands of officers and support staff, covering a population of 7.2 million people.
By giving its officers iPads on our 4G network, they’ve been able to cut administration time, helping to tackle crime faster and boost public confidence. In the first 3 months, officers uploaded more than 1,200 electronic statements and issued 1,400 crime reports. For the first time ever, victims of crime received a reference number immediately.
The officers’ iPads are kept secure thanks to Vodafone Secure Device Manager, and with Vodafone managing its mobile devices, IT staff are free to work on critical projects.
“Officers like using them (iPads) and the public likes to see them. It reinforces the idea we are a modern and relevant police force.”
Superintendent Adrian Hutchinson, Metropolitan Police
