Modernising policing through Digital Transformation in the cloud

Serving the Police and Justice Sector

All UK Public Sectors ranging from health through to police are undergoing significant change through digital transformation. The policing sector is facing significant challenges as a result of a changing landscape which has seen an increase in serious and organised crime, as well as terrorism. This means that police need a more secure and faster approach to managing and dealing with this current and evolving situation.

Key priorities include:

  • Transformation of IT systems
  • Secure resource sharing
  • Establishing collaborative processes with other government agencies

Challenges faced by the Policing Sector

  • Business Issues
  • Technology Issues
  • Financial Issues
  • Business Issues

    The police sector has a focus on reducing re-offending rates and aligning processes to improve Judiciary efficiency. Core to this is the need to increase cross department, agency and Police Force collaboration. Achieving this requires a new approach and more efficient systems to rapidly deal with crime and threat.

    Technology Issues

    New technology, such as decision support applications, can provide an intelligence overlay across multiple data sources to enable support officers and staff to make more informed decisions and work smarter. However, the associated data privacy and security challenges related to the level of data sharing and management that underpins these applications introduces further complexity to the implementation of this technology.

    Financial Issues

    A key challenge for the sector is managing and working with austerity measures. It is paramount that programmes and schemes are delivered on time and within budget so that successful outcomes can be achieved. All aspects of policing from front-line officers to judiciary organisations and agencies are needing to respond to higher demands, whilst also delivering cost savings.

  • The UKCloud Policing Application Community

    At UKCloud we have been supporting numerous police forces and their application providers for many years and we are collaborating with them across our UKCloud Policing Application Community. Initiated by two police forces, Cheshire and Northamptonshire for a single purpose, the community is growing and attracting new forces and application providers. This project was conceived to help policing organisations accelerate their adoption of cloud-based applications whether they are developed by the private sector or public sector. Benefits of the project include:

    • Application specialists and police forces can collaborate to transform processes to benefit citizens, officers, victims and police staff
    • A catalogue of applications categorised into back-office, middle-office, front-line, and data analysis available to the policing community
    • UKCloud works with the community to develop multi-application collaborations to help UK Policing solve strategic technology gaps that span the capability of more than one app provider
    • Support for application providers to onboard their services to the policing community and support with frameworks (G-Cloud etc.).

    UKCloud is an approved supplier under the Police Assured Secure Facility (PASF) scheme – a status that demonstrates robust compliance to a variety of people, process, premises and technology controls appropriate to the sensitivity of data processed by organisations within the Police & Justice community.
