Thames Valley Police

BlackBerry and the use of mobile data, is really integral to our future strategy in that we can be much more effective out on the streets
Francis Habgood Deputy Chief Constable, Thames Valley Police
  • Industry: Government and Public Sector
  • Region: EMEA
  • Company Size: Large
  • Solution: Secure mobile data access

Challenge

  • Thames Valley Police officers were spending, on average, 30% of their time in the station dealing with administrative tasks
  • A lot of time was spent by officers travelling to/from to the station in order to access police databases and check information
  • The force wanted to improve efficiency by reducing this and increasing the visibility of its officers in the community

Solution

  • BlackBerry® smartphones

Benefits

  • The BlackBerry® solution has enabled Thames Valley Police officers to securely access the Police National Computer database as well as warrants, missing persons and DVLA databases, meaning that they don't have to go back to the station to access information
  • It has allowed the force to deliver a better informed and more responsive service to its community
  • By reducing the amount of time spent making trips back to the station, the BlackBerry solution has helped to increase visibility of police officers in their community by 30 mins a day
