Video: IT in policing - Information for better decisions on the beat



Phil Davies, business lead for IS transformation, Greater Manchester Police

“Information is power – and police officers today need the best information available to empower them to make the best decisions they can on the spot,” points out this leader of change, who is pushing through a big shift to proactive use of mobile technology right across his force.

“Mobile will be the principal platform here in terms of getting information out to the professionals,” he confirms. But not just mobile – video conferencing and calling is also actively being evaluated.


Supported by Microsoft, UKAuthority and research participants from police, government and associated bodies, published a white paper, 'Digitising Policing'.
