Cloud provider will help the Met share, access, and collaborate on files securely on digital journey


Cloud content company Box, has won a deal with the Metropolitan Police Service to provide 50,000 seats across the force to manage content in the cloud as the Met drives towards digital policing.

Angus McCallum, the Met’s chief information officer said, “It’s my job to deliver digital transformation at the Met and to equip our officers and staff with the best technology to enable a constantly-improving service and response to crime in London,”

McCallum added, “By choosing Box, we’re transforming how we access content across the force, making us much more effective and efficient, which is absolutely critical when working on the frontline of law enforcement.”

The Met has identified multiple use-cases to provide a central online location for CCTV footage, which will make it easier to search and share pieces of evidence without the need to manage physical media such as DVDs or USBs. The Met hope to benefit from features such as metadata and groups, which will enable police officers to perform enhanced search across the content.
