The Lancashire Police Authority (LPA) in the north west of England covers an expansive area of 1121 square miles. With approximately 3550 officers based across thirty-six full time police stations and one hundred smaller posts and village stations, this travel schedule amounted to a huge expenditure in time and money for the Authority. The LPA decided to seek a solution to save time and money and increase the efficiency of these face-to-face collaborations. To master these needs LPA chose Polycom. LPA deployed Polycom HDX 7000 room telepresence systems, Polycom RMX 2000 real time media conference platform and Polycom Converged Management Application (CMA) 4000. Polycom solution has been operational; the Authority has substantially reduced travel costs throughout the divisions.
