Hexagon and Frequentis will support Leidos in upgrading the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) command and control system.
Under the 10-year programme, Leidos – the project’s prime contractor – will implement HxGN OnCall, a comprehensive portfolio of advanced public safety solutions, and the Frequentis communication platform LifeX, to deliver a system that captures emergency contacts from the public and subsequently coordinates deployment of officers to incidents, pre-planned events and other operations.
Ola Rollén, president and CEO at Hexagon, commented, “With the new Hexagon command and control solution, the Metropolitan Police Service will be able to modernise systems, improve service quality and increase employee engagement and well-being. By leveraging the power of data and the cloud, [it] can achieve greater agility and empower officers to better protect the people of London.”
The new HxGN OnCall command and control solution will provide a modern, easy-to-use, cohesive system with capabilities spanning dispatch, analytics, mobility and major event management. The cloud-based solution will drive efficiency within MPS and serve as a key pillar in the One Met Model 2020 and Policing Vision 2025 initiatives.
As part of the upgrade, the MPS will deploy HxGN OnCall Dispatch, HxGN OnCall Analytics, HxGN OnCall Planning & Response and HxGN OnCall Mobile Responder.
Leidos is also working with Chaucer Consulting to deploy a flexible system that can be scaled and enhanced to meet the needs of the public and the MPS through the life of the programme.
