Almost all the police forces in England and Wales have now adopted a new police performance measurement system.
The National Management Information System (NMIS) from Northgate Information Solutions is now being used by 37 police forces.
The system, developed in partnership with the police forces themselves, is designed to allow forces to effectively monitor and analyse police performance, to help deliver continuous improvements in efficiency and effectiveness.
The system enables forces to produce improved performance management reports; link together disparate sources of police data, unlocking valuable information; and improve delivery of their policing plans.
Alan Parker, deputy chief constable of Warwickshire Police and chair of the NMIS National User Group, said, “We are delighted that 37 forces are beginning to realise the benefits of NMIS.
“Through working with Northgate, forces can undertake improved performance analysis and take action on the basis of accurate information - the essentials of modern policing.”
