The Metropolitan Police Authority wants to implement a system that will allow staff to track the location of officers and keep tabs on what they are doing in an attempt to increase their safety.

It has released a tender for a system which will integrate into the national Airwave radio network and provide data from officers' handheld radios.

The data will include GPS location and resource status updates. It will also allow staff to monitor the locations, activities and circumstances of specific officers.

Automatic location systems will allow the monitoring of movements, and real-time updates of where officers are and what their commitments are, will be achievable.

The Metropolitan Police Authority wants between four and 10 companies to bid for the tender. The contract will begin in October this year and run for four years, and is worth between £1m and £2m.
