Police forces veto G4S outsourcing deal

Three police forces have abandoned a planned outsourcing contract with the security company G4S after their newly appointed police and crime commissioners vetoed the deal.

Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire police were considering con­tracting G4S to provide information technology and human resources support as part of a money-saving collaboration strategy. But in a meeting Tuesday night the commissioners decided to drop the plans.
