The British Transport Police (BTP) has awarded a five year contract for abmpegasus™ Source Management – the covert human intelligence source (CHIS) management solution from criminal intelligence, investigation and criminal justice software solutions specialist, ABM.
The railways present a unique policing environment with very distinctive needs. BTP’s 2,835 police officers and 1,455 support staff police the tracks and provide a service to rail operators, their staff and passengers across the country. Source Management will offer the next generation of covert policing technology to effectively manage confidential informants, delivering better value for the force and the public.
ABM’s professional services director, Sue Grewcock, explains: “By incorporating ABM’s Source Management module into the force’s existing infrastructure, it will assist the BTP in maximising accountability whilst enhancing the productivity of each source. The module also offers enhanced profiling to match CHIS to problem areas and even help improve financial monitoring and control of payments and rewards to informants.”
Used by 80% of UK Police Services, abmpegasus™ Source Management is the most successful CHIS management solution available anywhere in the world today, providing a management platform in line with relevant legislative requirements and established best practice.
Following formal training in December, the Source Management implementation will follow in the new year. Once the initial system has been installed, it will be very easy for BTP to open up further functionality as Source Management is part of the cutting-edge abmpegasus™ covert management suite. The complete solution encompasses Source Management, Information in Confidence, Protected Persons, Communications, Surveillance and Debrief to provide an integrated approach to managing covert operations.
