*UKHotViewsExtra* Introducing the Police Digital Service

PDS logoToday (01 April 2021), marks the launch of the Police Digital Service (PDS), the new identity for the Police ICT Company. This represents far more than a name change; the organisation will have a broader remit and the resources to drive significant changes in policing.

The Police ICT Company was established in 2015 with the aim of supporting law enforcement agencies in England and Wales to make the best use of technology to deliver efficient and effective policing. It was intended to create a bridge between the policing, technological and commercial worlds, as well as helping cut the cost of police ICT, reduce duplication, and improve collaboration.

UKHotViews PremiumAlthough the Company has made progress in recent years and achieved some of those aims, including establishing several commercial agreements and frameworks, there has always been a feeling amongst suppliers (and the organisation itself) that it could be doing more. The formation of the PDS should provide the organisation with the platform it needs to achieve its potential.
