British Transport Police (BTP) has awarded a five-year contract for abmpegasus™ Source Management, a covert human intelligence source (CHIS) management solution from criminal intelligence, investigation and criminal justice software solutions specialist, ABM.

Already used by 80 per cent of the UK’s police services, the software offers the next-generation of covert policing technology to effectively manage confidential informants, delivering better value for the force.

Following formal training in December, the Source Management implementation is expected to follow in the new year.

BTP’s 2,835 police officers and 1,455 support staff provide a service to rail operators, their staff and passengers across the country.

ABM’s professional services director, Sue Grewcock, explained: “By incorporating ABM’s Source Management module into the force’s existing infrastructure, it will assist the BTP in maximising accountability whilst enhancing the productivity of each source.

“The module also offers enhanced profiling to match CHIS to problem areas and even help improve financial monitoring and control of payments and rewards to informants.”
