Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire police forces are rolling out a joint traffic offence management and enforcement system to increase overall efficiencies and assist them with road safety.

The multi-year contract with StarTraq will provide the three forces with an integrated, adjudication and document management system. Using its offence management and enforcement system, StarTraq Dome, StarTraq will be able to set up the offence workflows for the three forces according to their needs and enable them to gain economies of scale brought about by collaboration.

Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire police have entered into a strategic alliance to deliver a more cost-efficient service to the public of all three counties. Aligning their ICT systems enables them to share resources easily while keeping IT maintenance costs and staff training requirements to a minimum.

Richard Talbott, head of Sales at StarTraq, said running a central ticket office would enable the three forces to gain much more insight into their workload and allow them to quickly allocate resources appropriately.

“By collaborating with each other, they are able to share their licence costs, but still maintain their three individual police identities,” he added.

StarTraq has already deployed software for regional collaboration of safety camera central ticket offices across Welsh police forces and is currently implementing a similar project for the Norfolk and Suffolk constabularies.
