North Yorkshire Police expects to increase crime detections and officer efficiency from a new performance and information management system that will offer improved predictive analysis of crimes and more effective officer deployment.

It also predicts a saving of £9.7 million over five years through additional efficiency and productivity gains.

The management system, from IT services specialists Atos Origin and business intelligence software company SAS, will improve the accuracy of stored information and allow fast and secure access.

Superintendent Lewis Raw, North Yorkshire’s project director for the system installation, said the business intelligence reporting model would meet immediate and future needs.

“We were able to re-use routines and mappings they had developed for South Wales Police as well, which provided cost and timescale advantages,” he said.

Anne Ware, head of public sector business at Atos Origin, said: “National programmes such as IMPACT and MOPI have emphasised the importance of accurate information for intelligence-led policing and the need for operational systems to share information that too often resides in a number of independent ‘silo’ systems.”

Atos Origin will manage the data cleansing and transfer of accurate and non-duplicated information from existing operational systems to a new corporate data warehouse. During the transition of data, it will ensure that all information held on the existing systems remains available for operational use.
