Helping Oz Fight Crime by James Cunliffe
Aussie criminals are being kept under close observation – thanks to a Luton firm.
David Horn Communications, which designs and manufactures video surveillance and recording equipment from its Bramingham Business Park base, has won a contract with the Australian police force.
The company, which employs 29 people, has been supplying British police, military and Government agencies for 22 years.  But last year it branched out ‘Down Under’ to win a contract with the New South Wales police force.  And this week marketing director Jeff Horn revealed the company has won a second contract, this time to provide equipment to the Western Australia force.
Working with a grant from the Government’s UK Trade and Investment Initiative, Mr Horn set out to Australia on January 15 last year.  While there he met distributors, agents and representatives from New South Wales and Queensland police during visits to Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane.  He also won a contract to supply video interview surveillance equipment for New South Wales police.  The firm has since supplied 257 systems to the force, worth £700,000.
The company has since appointed two distributors in Australia.
Mr Horn said: ‘This has been a fantastic result for us and let’s hope there is more to come.  To say the market research scheme was a good idea for us is a bit of an understatement’.
