CIO | Metropolitan Police Service
An accountant originally, Ailsa Beaton is now responsible for the Metropolitan Police Service's (MPS) directorate of information, which provides IT and communications services to the Met's 47,000 police officers and staff across 750 locations. Beaton also sits on the MPS management board.
One of Beaton's key priorities is delivery of the Met's Command, Control, Communication and Information (C3i) organisational change programme which will integrate all the force's 32 borough control rooms into a central command unit, and addressing data quality issues.
Beaton is also head of the information management area for the Association of Chief Police Officers and a board member of London Connects, a pan-London agency that brings together local, regional and central government departments and bodies to support e-government delivery across the capital.
Beaton has more than 25 years' experience in IT roles, which have included CIO of ICL, senior partner at PA Consulting and various sales and technical roles at GE in the US.Return to list
