From late 2020, West Midlands Police (WMP) have been at the forefront of driving public sector automation, building their automation capability with the aim to improve operational efficiency and reduce the administrative workload for police officers and staff.
Their first UiPath automation was implemented in April 2021, exceeding expectations. The software robot was able to complete their ‘Active Crime Record Transfer’ process seven times faster than a member of staff, with 1,612 hours saved. That time saving resulted in direct benefits to core policing hours: enabling officers to spend more time protecting their communities.
Take a look back at this fireside chat, delivered on 14th December 2021, where Alastair Gregory, Gregg Hudson & Scott Elliott share their challenges and lessons learnt since embarking on the automation journey.
