The overall purpose of any solution will be to facilitate effective crime and disorder prevention and detection, through efficient tasking of police resources. This will need to be done in real-time as an automated, proactive process that fits with existing infrastructure, procedures and legislative requirements to assist operational decision makers to prioritise, allocate resources and manage risk.

The added value that any solution may provide would include automated holistic interpretation of available information to identify what has happened, what we know about the situation (who, what, where, when, why and how), the resources we have available, what is likely to happen in the future (prediction) and suggestions for a potential course of action. In order to maximise benefit any solution would need to be intuitive to use and provide the outcomes in a real time and visual format.

The project would realistically expecting any successful solution to assist in delivering the following outcomes:

• Improved prevention, detection and disruption of criminal activity and disorder.

• More efficient use of staff and resources to ensure we have the right people in the right place, at the right time.

• Improved planning and forecasting to ensure best value is obtained from our staff and resources.
