Case Study: SBL Deploy a Mobile Information Solution for Front Line Officers of West Yorkshire Police

West Yorkshire Police (WYP) were amongst the first Police force in the UK to deploy a mobile information solution to their front line officers. The objective was to deliver a highly mobile, secure, and reliable access point to sensitive data, whilst having the capability to accurately manage the devices from a central, on premise application. West Yorkshire Police partnered with SBL, who were chosen for their long-standing and proven ability to work with secure clients to deliver innovative and cost efficient solutions. Close collaboration between the WYP mobility team and SBL’s in house subject matter experts saw the development and delivery of a phased project, delivering 4,500 mobile devices, with classroom based training for front line Officers.

The project successfully delivered within cost and timescale, and was widely heralded as a significant development in front line productivity.

The successful partnership between West Yorkshire Police and SBL has now entered a second phase, with an extension of the original device capability, and a new requirement for front-line mobile devices. West Yorkshire Police continue to benefit from SBL’s vendor agnostic technical advice and in-house capability, their cradle to grave approach to project management, and ability to provide security cleared staff operating from a secure, accredited location.
