This includes the continued provision of essential fleet and engineering services that ensures the availability of over 3,500 vehicles and associated specialist equipment; as well as the delivery of six specialist marine vessels for the Met’s Marine Policing Unit that will be the forefront of front line policing on the River Thames.

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) recently granted Babcock:
  • A two-year extension, effective from November 2020, to the current Met Fleet Services contract managed by Babcock since 2006, for the provision of repair and maintenance, logistics support and fleet administration.
  • A 17-month extension, also effective from November 2020, to the existing Met Transport Service Agreement contract for the provision of specialist vehicle engineering services.
  • A three-year contract, signed in September 2020, for the delivery of one Command and Control Vessel and five Fast Patrol vessels, entailing full supply chain management, project management and engineering assurance.

Matthew Hayward, Babcock’s Managing Director, Engineering & Training Services said: “Babcock is proud of the role we play in supporting front line policing operations. We are delighted to be continuing our partnership to deliver vehicle fleet and engineering services, and excited to be extending our relationship with the Metropolitan Police Service.”
