*UKHotViewsExtra* Policing Productivity Review calls for greater investment in innovative technology

NPCC logoThe Policing Productivity Review, published yesterday, highlights the critical role technology must play in enhancing police productivity and improving the outcomes policing delivers for the public. It forms part of the UK Government’s wider Productivity Programme (see UK Government Productivity Programme: AI focus).

Home Office logoThe Review was commissioned by the Home Office in August 2022. The department asked the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) to conduct an independent review and make recommendations on how to improve effectiveness and productivity in policing, identifying the barriers and the most efficient operating models. This included looking at the scope for using new technology to drive efficiency and better outcomes.

UKHV Premium LogoLed by Alan Pughsley, former Chief Constable of Kent Police, the Review puts forward 26 recommendations across a range of areas including data and the role of technology as a productivity multiplier. It identifies how the systemic use of innovation and technology can be improved across police forces and highlights how the exploitation of technology by policing has been patchy.
