Team overview

LDSS (Local Delivery Support Services) delivers a wide variety of support services locally, with a central management structure and teams supporting geographical areas across London.

We deliver numerous local services including general administration, support to Senior Leadership Teams, management of criminal exhibits, fleet administration and management and typing for criminal cases.

Most of the work we undertake involves working closely with our operational colleagues.
