In Devon and Cornwall there are roughly 800 people injured on the roads every year resulting in road closures. This amounts to an economic loss of £1m every hour the motorway network is closed and a cost of £2.6m to the public sector for every fatal collision. In addition these road closures often cause the road networks in and around Exeter can become gridlocked.
Devon and Cornwall Police and Dorset Police have set out a challenge to reduce evidential capture time by 75% during a collision investigation while still meeting the requirements of The Coroners Court.

We are currently mobilising this challenge competition with a view to launch in February 2019.
Teams selected to be part of this competition will complete a 3-month immersion programme with Devon and Cornwall Police and Dorset Police. This will offer regular engagements, workshops and in-field testing with road traffic investigation units in Devon to help you cycle through several sprints and develop-test-refine your product to address the challenge.
Alongside this you will benefit from access to the Exeter City Space to provide a local base for you to work plus opportunity to meet mentors and investors who are part of the Exeter Velocities network.
To apply for this competition you will need to be a legally registered commercial or social enterprise that owns an MVP/prototype that you are able to demonstrate live in the field.
You won’t yet have paying customers for your product within the police evidence capture sector and you will be willing and able to develop your product as part of a co-creation process.
