Lincolnshire Chief Constable happy with G4S partnership
Lincolnshire Police chief Constable Bill Skelly said he wanted to affirm the force’s satisfaction with their strategic partner G4S and the services they provide the force.
This follows reports that the Ministry of Justice had seized control of Birmingham prison from G4S after a report revealed shocking levels of drink, drugs and violence at the facility.
"I think it is appropriate to re-state that we continue to value the relationship we have with our strategic partner, G4S," said Constable Skelly.
"Our satisfaction remains high with the contract now in its seventh year of 10 years.
"They continue to provide good service and excellent value for money to the people of Lincolnshire."
Lincolnshire Police entered into the 10 year contract with G4S, now known as G4S Policing Services, in 2012.
This includes the provision of support to policing operations including Information Technology, the Force Control Room, custody suites (including the street to suite initiative), firearms licensing, the
vehicle fleet and its servicing, Human Resources including recruiting, officer and staff training, criminal justice services and administrative support for the estate infrastructure as well as the staffing
of police station front offices.
