Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which police forces are equipped with National Strategy for Police Information Systems in respect of (a) custody and (b) case preparation; when he expects the remaining police forces to adopt such systems; and if he will make a statement. (143206)

23 police forces have implemented the National Strategy for Police Information Systems (NSPIS) electronic custody management application in at least one site. 18 of these have the system deployed in all relevant sites. 26 forces have the NSPIS electronic case management application in live use in at least one site, with full implementation completed in 20 forces.

The implementation programme is now entering its final stages and will be completed in all forces—other than the Metropolitan Police (MPS)—by the end of 2007. The MPS will complete their implementation in 2008.
