Capita Head Line Sponsor at Modernising Justice Through Technology, Innovation & Efficiency

Capita's Director of Police and Justice, Robert Leach delivered a key note speech about how the depth and breadth of expertise and experience can help and add value as well as ensure the successful, timely implementation of new technologies.

In his speech, Robert communicated the need for the Police and emergency responders to adapt and change to deliver a better service and better outcomes for the Public. He highlighted the challenging times that the Police and the entire Criminal Justice system are currently facing and emphasised that all Forces need clear, progressive and affordable strategies if they are to invest in the right technologies and achieve lasting IT transformation. He touched on the innovations that have taken place over the last decade through social media and suggested that the public now want more ‘open’ channels of communication to report an incident or check upon a crime. But he admitted that putting the technologies in place to enable this to happen in an efficient and cost effective way isn't simple.

Robert spoke how Capita's depth and breadth of expertise and experience can help and add value as well as ensure the successful, timely implementation of new technologies. He highlighted the extensive range of new Capita solutions that have been developed and how its investment in innovative technologies is solving major issues for the Police and other emergency responders. This investment and commitment innovative change is enabling its clients to adapt to restricted budgets and still achieve service and operational excellence.

Robert's key message was the need for common IT standards across the Criminal Justice Sector and the 'common sense' requirement for all 43 Forces to work together to deliver better solutions for the Public. He believes both are essential to enable IT specialists to work together to deliver innovative and affordable solutions to the Justice sector.

He finished with a quote (from Darwin) ‘It's not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive, but those who can best manage change’.
