Two of the UK’s leading providers of IT systems for police forces, SunGard Public Sector and IPL, have teamed up to develop a joint solution for the police back-office system of the future. It provides an architectural blueprint for IT systems to cover areas such as crime, intelligence, case and custody.

SunGard and IPL will submit their solution to the Eastern Region police forces’ Athena project, a multi-million pound programme for the procurement of a state-of-the-art police IT system.

SunGard already supplies IT systems to the majority of UK police forces, including Kent and Essex. SunGard and IPL jointly developed Kent’s current core policing system (Genesis) and have subsequently supported and maintained it 24/7 since the mid 1990s.

Paul Jobbins, director at SunGard Public Sector, added: ‘This is an extremely important project and will form the foundation of future police back office systems. It was therefore extremely important that SunGard should work with a complementary organisation like IPL.”
