Interserve supports Met Police incidents and events

20 May 2010

Interserve has retained a four-year, £9m contract with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to provide special events services throughout the MPS London region and home counties.

Interserve will, under this contract,  directly support operational policing through traffic management and engineering services during public order, ceremonial and major incidence events, planned and unplanned. Interserve has been delivering special events services to the MPS since 1999. Its team works on a 24/365 basis covering a multitude of activities. These include:
 Assisting in the planning and implementation of activities surrounding events such as Wimbledon tennis, the London Marathon and Remembrance Day.
 Responding to crimes, accidents or disasters by providing and deploying generators, tents and tarpaulins, floodlighting and other equipment.
 Creating witness-appeal boards - the signs used by the police at scenes of crimes to elicit help from the public.
In a separate contract Interserve also provides facilities management services to over 300 sites and more than 800 buildings throughout the MPS’s operational territory within the M25. This includes New Scotland Yard, around 70 police stations, offices, garages and premises for housing and training dogs.
Keith Dorling, Interserve’s Managing Director, Home Affairs and Local Authority, commented, “Special Events is one of the most interesting and challenging aspects of our work with the Metropolitan Police Service so we are delighted to be awarded this new, four-year contract. Over the last 10 years our dedicated team has worked hard to develop a partnership of trust with the MPS and will continue to deliver services to front-line policing to the highest possible standard.”
