Surrey Police end shared services involvement

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

The Surrey Police Authority have finalised their exit from the Business Partnering for Police Programme, having suspended their involvement in the shared services programme in July.

The shared services scheme saw the Surrey Police enter into an IT and support shared services scheme, with the West Midlands Police Authority. 

The Authority’s decision came after G4S, as one of the main shared services contractor, failed to deliver on the Olympic contract.

Surrey Police Authority said: “Potential PCC candidates are now actively campaigning to put a stop to the Business Partnering for Police Programme and the Authority agreed that it would be not be prudent to continue to invest Surrey tax payers’ money in a programme that seems unlikely to be brought to a fruitful conclusion.”
