Northgate Information Solutions : 01 February, 2008  (Application Story)
Northgate joins forces with Avon and Somerset Constabulary to provide improvements to guardian records management system.
Avon & Somerset Constabulary has announced that it is extending its partnership with Northgate Information Solutions, a leading provider of innovative services to the public sector and utilities markets, in order to provide key information to officers when and where they need it most.

Under a £500,000 four-year contract signed in October 2007, Northgate is working to further improve the Force's use of its Guardian Records Management System.

Northgate already supports Avon & Somerset officers to act quickly based on accurate information through the ability to input, store and access records and the linkages between them via Guardian. Previously, they would have to log on to separate systems to find out if a suspect was known to police, at what address they were known and whether they were known for previous offences.

Under the new agreement, Northgate will deliver further improvements that will enable the force to:.

* Provide access to information securely over the web or on mobile devices, enabling officers to retrieve data whilst out in the field.
* Extract bespoke analysis that supports daily operations priorities, for example all burglaries in a certain sector or all stolen vehicles in the last 72 hours.
* Comply fully with current guidance relating to the Management of Police Information (MoPI), as well as respond flexibly and quickly to any changes.
* Easily manage complex processes relating to the review of information, such as who must perform the review, how often, and how the matter would be escalated if it was not completed.

Assistant Chief Constable, Steve Mortimore said today: "Our officers can quickly see intelligence and crime records held across the force's systems, which means proactive policing and a faster response. We are committed to using this information more effectively to inform operations and meet our day to day and strategic priorities. We are delighted to be working with Northgate to open up access to information that really makes a difference for officers in the field, and ultimately for the neighbourhoods they serve."

Ian Blackhurst, Managing Director of Criminal Justice & Public Safety at Northgate Public Services added: "Police forces across the country are looking to use information to drive performance improvements through proactive management rather than simple reaction to events. This has the ability to transform operational policing. Through improving access to key information and analysis, officers can be provided with the support they need to take action to deliver safer communities. We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Avon & Somerset, as they focus on delivering real improvements in operational policing."
