New figures from enforcement software solutions firm StarTraq have revealed that London’s Metropolitan Police service (MPS) have increased the number of speeding and red light offences processed by nearly two and a half times since using its latest software.
The Met has been live with the StarTraq back-office software solution, DOME, since March 2020. The solution was procured as an essential part of London’s ‘Vision Zero’ plan to eradicate deaths and serious injuries on London’s roads.
MPS needed to modernise their back-office processes from a manual paper-based system to a completely digital solution that provided scope for greater automation and efficiency.
The processing efficiencies achieved through the implementation of the DOME has been an important element to allow the MPS Traffic Prosecutions team to increase the number of offences being processed by 147% from 189,000 in 2019-20 to 467,000 in 2021-22.
Pauline Pateman-West, Head of Traffic Prosecution Services, MPS commented, “The efficiencies delivered through implementing the StarTraq system has enabled the MPS to nearly triple the number of offences we are processing with the aim of reducing speeding and the harm it causes. Without the StarTraq system, to process the same volume of offences we would have needed to recruit nearly 24 additional members of staff.”
