Accenture to help West Midlands Police deliver new digital capabilities

West Midlands has confirmed a five year partnership with Accenture to re-think policing.

Accenture will support the force in driving efficiencies and will deliver new digital capabilities.

Early discussions have included work on developing systems where people will be able to report crimes online and track the progress of cases electronically.

The force and Accenture are also considering introducing new mobile devices to help officers sustain and improve the quality of policing across the West Midlands.

Over the next six months Accenture will help design a new target operating model for the force, a blueprint for how it will work in 2020.

Drawing on Accenture’s global industry experience and extensive work with UK public and private sector clients, the 2020 blueprint will be developed with the force, partners and local communities involving extensive consultation.
