The efficient and effective operation of frontline policing services is critical to the safety and security of society
The police are experiencing enormous additional strain on their already stretched resources: globalisation of the criminal environment; the increased sophistication and complexity of crimes; the growing administrational burden from new legislation; as well as the pressures on police budgets and the public sector purse brought about by global economic conditions.
G4S believes the private sector can bring extensive benefits in support of the public sector through; better value for money; improved service levels; national surge capacity; effective management; as well as providing specialist knowledge and expertise as and when it is required. We understand the challenges and pressures facing those working in the police sector and our services are tailored to meet their requirements, freeing up scarce resources and allowing them to do more for less, for the communities they serve.
In support of these principles we provide a wide range of services to support police services across the UK:
