Shared ser­vice wins best prac­tice award for po­lice

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A SER­VICE set up by Cheshire Po­lice has scooped a Euro­pean award for its lead­ing prac­tices.

Cheshire po­lice worked with Northamp­ton­shire Po­lice to set up the Multi Force Shared Ser­vice (MFSS), a sin­gle shared team for ac­counts, pur­chas­ing and pay­roll.

The ser­vice was recog­nised at the an­nual Shared Ser­vices Out­sourc­ing Net­work’s an­nual awards, held in Am­s­ter­dam, and picked up the award for Ex­cel­lence in Value Cre­ation.

John Dwyer, Po­lice and Crime Com­mis­sioner for Cheshire, said: “I am de­lighted to see that a ser­vice that was cre­ated by Cheshire Con­stab­u­lary and Northamp­ton­shire Po­lice just three years ago is prov­ing to be such a valu­able as­set.

“The fact that MFSS has re­ceived this pres­ti­gious award is tes­ta­ment to the hard work of our staff and the value of work­ing in col­lab­o­ra­tion with other com­mis­sion­ers and forces.”

Simon Byrne, Cheshire Con­stab­u­lary Chief Constable, said: “I am enor­mously proud of MFSS. Op­er­at­ing like this is a blue­print that oth­ers can learn from in terms of tack­ling the chal­lenges of aus­ter­ity.”
