    G4S outsource plan is checked


    After the firm found itself criticized over its failure to provide enough security staff for the Olympics, plans to outsource support services of three police forces to G4S are being reviewed. The Hertfordshire Police, Bedfordshire, and Cambridgeshire plan  to help plug a £73m funding gap. The forces were given the go-ahead to investigate outsolurcing backroom services in the month of June. Between the forces’ Chief Constables, a new meeting has now taken place. With the 3,500 extra troops now being deployed for security, earlier this month G4S admitted that it would fall short on the number of security guard provided for the Olympics.

    A Police spokeswoman of Cambridgeshire stated that the “Chief Constables of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire police forces are meeting to discuss the current situation regarding the development of a full business case to outsource organizational support services through the Lincolnshire Police Contract with G4S.”

    About the Olympics devastation, its said that “a further meeting of police authority members and chief constables is expected to take place early next week” and ” any changes to the current position would need to be considered in  public by each of the three police authorities in due course. The branch secretary of Union Unison which represents support workers at Cambridgeshire Police, Dave Craig stated that he hoped the new meeting would reconsider the move. He also said that the Olympics debacle shows that big conglomerates do not always get things right. To provide the HR, finance and ICT services, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire forces are looking use the G4S. By year 2015, the plan could affect 1,100 staff and save each force £20m a year.

    G4S Policing Support Services, John Shaw told the BBC that the “G4S has been reliably supporting police forces for more than 20 years. In Lincolnshire, they have been supporting the force since April and have made a solid start in delivering specific services and savings.” and “the new G4S operated force control room is up and running and been completed on schedule.”

    Their policing support division is entirely  divided to their global events business, which has managed the Olympics contract. It has an appropriate resources with more than 1,000 staff. Beyond the part of their business, they abide to work to the high standards that their customers have come to foresee and no contracts have been induced by the Olympics. The G4S still committed in providing efficient and high quality services to their government and commercial customers as they have completed for 75 years.
