Wynyard Group has secured a contract with the New Zealand Police, using the company's serious crime investigations software.
The intelligence-led software business says the service says the initial term of the contract is five years, with renewal provisions for a further ten years.
Used internationally by over 50 agencies, the software is used by the Australian Federal Police to specialist operations in the United Kingdom and multi-nation crime task forces in Asia.
New Zealand Police Deputy Commissioner Operations Mike Bush says keeping up to date with the latest and most advanced technology to prevent crime in today’s rapidly changing world is critical.
“Wynyard Investigator will be implemented across New Zealand Police serious crime investigations including cyber-crime, asset recovery and other specialist policing areas, contributing to our Prevention First and crime reduction targets," he says.
“In addition to an advanced software solution that will support modern policing practices for more than 11,000 staff, we also gain direct access to Wynyard’s New Zealand-based crime science research and development resources to ensure we continue to have the very best tools available.”
Commenting on the contract, Wynyard MD Craig Richardson says the relationship with the police would extend beyond the provision of Wynyard’s Investigations software.
“We develop privileged, long-term relationships with our customers by delivering on our promise of confidentiality, innovation and technology that help organisations tackle problems growing in complexity, scale and impact," he says.
"We are proud to now include New Zealand Police alongside our other international government customers."
