As part of the tender competition, we are asking suppliers to explain how they will evolve their technology and how they will ensure the MPS receives the most up to date, future proof devices and systems. Additionally, the successful supplier will be expected to work with the MPS for the duration of the contract to ensure that opportunities to develop according to emerging policing and criminal justice needs are captured.
