New technologies and technical skills shortages have put our service under pressure. However, new technologies that already exist or can be developed also present our service with opportunities to modernise, become more efficient and better equip and enable our officers.
Data will help us shift from a reactive policing model, to designing proactive and preventative solutions to improve how we protect the public from harm. We will unlock more value from data while maintaining public trust.
Operational effectiveness and the ability to protect and engage with citizens or our workforce can be significantly enhanced through connected technologies and by bringing insights and functionality directly to officers and staff wherever they are.
