Global law firm White & Case has advised leading security solutions group G4S in relation to its £200 million transformation project with Lincolnshire Police Authority. The contract is the first of its kind to be awarded in the UK police sector.
G4S will provide a wide range of support services to Lincolnshire Police Authority through a 10 year strategic partnership, delivering savings of approximately £28 million to the authority through a radical programme of investment and process improvements. The transferring services include IT, finance, human resources, custody, force control room (which handles emergency and routine calls), asset and facilities management, town enquiry offices, firearms licensing and criminal justice support. The project also includes the design and build of a new, state of the art police station in the county.
"As a direct response to the budget challenges facing the police sector, this strategic partnership provides an innovative solution to police support services," said Anthony Fine, a partner at White & Case. "The project will deliver new and improved infrastructure and free up officer time for frontline duties. Working with G4S and Lincolnshire Police Authority on this project builds on our market leading experience in this sector."
The White & Case team was led by Anthony Fine and senior associate Lucy Plowright with support from partners Nicholas Greenacre and Stephen Ravenscroft and associate Rhian Williams.
