The Metropolitan Police Service has awarded the publishing contract for

a large tranche of its corporate publications to Barkers Trident

Communications.



The agency has been appointed to handle the design, publication,

printing and distribution of a range of internal and external

publications, leaflets and newsletters.



Barkers Trident will now produce the Met’s two internal publications The

Job, published fortnightly, and the quarterly Metropolitan Journal,

which was formerly written in-house. It will also continue to handle the

Met’s only external magazine, The Link, which it has worked on for the

last two years. An industry source estimates the account’s annual budget

to be around pounds 250,000, with fees worth about pounds 100,000.



Barkers Trident’s win unseats Citigate Publishing, part of Citigate

Communications, which has produced The Job since 1993. The highly

regarded news-based title, has a circulation of 27,000.



John Miller, Met assistant director of public affairs, said the work had

been awarded to one agency to increase the efficiency of the service’s

corporate publications.
