“We are extremely proud to announce that getITright Ltd has been selected to undertake the development of a Technical Solution for Self-Service Public Access to Policing Services at Fixed Points & Via a Mobile Application for Bedfordshire Police, this piece of work being progressed by the Bedfordshire Office of Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC)
The development is a proof of concept based on our highly innovative COP (Community & Operational Policing) Hub™ product and will be available to the OPCC by the end of this year. The product once fully progressed will enable the public of Bedfordshire to directly undertake tasks such as Reporting an Incident and access an Update About My Crime, as part of its initial functionality, with the potential in the future for significantly enhanced functionality (including Web-Chat, Production of Documents, Uploading Video Images amongst other items) to be added incrementally;
The solution will enable a form of joint working between the police, partners and the community that has never before been possible; this will engender closer cooperation, build two-way respect and enhance confidence in policing and public contact.
At a time when police retention and recruitment are both under the spotlight, and the effects of BREXIT and the pandemic have been taking a huge toll on all of us, this unprecedented level of collaboration in the delivery of public safety has an exceptionally broad range of benefits to be realised by the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner and the community.
To be part of this hugely exciting project is an absolute honour and privilege for our business and the realisation of a genuine professional dream for Simon and I. Bringing Policing and their public together will change lives. #COP Hub”
Quote from Clare Kelly, Chief Executive OPCC Bedfordshire
“We are really excited to be progressing this partnership and look forward to seeing the proof of concept being delivered to support communities across the county having enhanced methods of contact available to them to access Policing services”.
