Essex Police has struck a deal with Agilisys to design and build new products on its Analytics for Everyone platform.

It has agreed on a two-year, £700,000 contract with the digital transformation specialist to develop dashboards using Microsoft Power BI to make relevant data more widely available among its officers and staff.

One of the first dashboards will focus on identified high harm crimes, delivering information to support a preventative approach to policing where possible.

Agilisys will also work with the Essex Police analytics and research team to develop internal specialist skills to maximise the benefits of the Analytics for Everyone platform.  This will be accompanied by a focus on developing the data culture across the organisation.

Forward thinking

Essex Police Chief Constable Ben-Julian Harrington said: “Understanding data is key to Essex Police being an innovative, forward thinking force. By making the most out of the resources available to us, we can utilise our force of fantastic officers and staff to deliver the best possible service to people in Essex.

“We centre around preventing, responding to and investigating crime. To ensure we do this, as a force we need to make sure we are skilled, equipped and enabled to use data and technology. I am looking forward to working with Agilisys and seeing how this partnership will benefit communities in Essex.”
