Avon & Somerset police sign £500,000 records management contract with Northgate

Avon & Somerset police has extended its records management contract with Northgate in a new £500,000 deal.

Avon & Somerset police has extended its records management contract with Northgate in a new £500,000 deal.

The four-year contract will see Northgate working to further improve the force's use of its Guardian Records Management System.

Northgate already helps Avon & Somerset officers to act quickly based on accurate information, through the ability to input, store and access records and the linkages between them via Guardian.

Previously, they would have had to log on to separate systems to find out if a suspect was known to police, at what address they were known at and whether they were known for previous offences.

Under the new agreement, Northgate will deliver further improvements that will enable the force to provide access to information securely over the web or on mobile devices, enabling officers to retrieve data whilst out in the field.

The new deal will also allow the force to extract bespoke analysis that supports daily operations priorities - for example all burglaries in a certain sector or all stolen vehicles in the last 72 hours.

Avon & Somerset assistant chief constable Steve Mortimore said, "We are committed to using information more effectively to inform operations and meet our day to day and strategic priorities."
