Management of Police Information

Volume 496: debated on Tuesday 1 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made by police forces in their implementation of the statutory code of practice on the management of police information. (287917)

IMPACT continues to support police forces in bringing about the required business change to effect successful compliance with the code of practice and guidance for the Management of Police Information (MoPI).

In September 2006 the MoPI Delivery Board required all forces in England and Wales to achieve implementation in line with the MoPI code of practice and guidance by December 2010.

The board also required the IMPACT Programme to conduct regular formal reviews of all police forces in order to monitor progress and assess national implementation risk. Throughout March to May 2009, the fourth series of such reviews was conducted by the IMPACT Programme.

The review established that there could be every expectation that a large majority of police forces would be fully MoPI compliant and the remaining forces substantially MoPI compliant by December 2010.
