New £37.4m communications technology for southern police

Three police forces in the south are to share new communications technology.

Thames Valley, Hampshire and Surrey forces have signed a £37.4m contract with BT for a secure communications network and contact centre technology.

The forces said the standardised telecommunications would allow better collaboration and information sharing.

Thames Valley chief constable Sara Thornton said the move aimed to "increase efficiency and continue to reduce costs".
