Following a commission from the National Policing Board, the National Policing Improvement Agency has established the Information Systems Improvement Strategy (ISIS). This programme of work will create both a common operating environment for officers and innovative information services. The ISIS programme is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
The programme’s focus for 2009-10 includes:
Delivery of a national crime mapping solution by September 2009
New national procurement agreements that will deliver cost savings
Working with police forces to develop a new digital evidence strategy that will contribute to improvements across the criminal justice system.
The ISIS plan for 2009-10 will shortly be published and distributed to police forces and police authorities and the programme will report on progress to myself and the National Policing Board in June.
