The Metropolitan Police Service and the National Policing Improvement Agency have signed a framework agreement with Vodafone.
The four-year agreement is designed to make it simpler and more cost effective for the MPS and other UK police forces to procure mobile technology. The deal is part of the new mobile technology National Police Framework Agreement which will be available for other forces to use.
It follows another framework agreement developed with the NPIA for IT services to support back-office policing activities.
Vodafone said it would continue to support the force's network of mobiles in addition to now managing some of its Blackberrys.
