Northgate Information Solutions said police forces currently using its national police enforcement solution for penalty notices for disorder will continue to do so for a further two years.
Under agreements worth a total of £1.25m, 42 forces across England and Wales will now continue to use the Northgate Enforcement Solution (NES).
This follows the national roll-out of the government’s Penalty Notices for Disorder scheme in 2004, for which Northgate is the approved supplier.
NES supports police forces across the country to deal efficiently and effectively with low-level crime and nuisance behaviour.
The system manages offences from point of entry to payment or prosecution, and administers all penalty notices issued for minor disorder within a single system.
The system is designed to enable police officers to spend less time on paperwork and more time on the beat.
