Description of the contract
Under this government, policing has seen the widest ranging programme of reform in recent years. That reform has included the abolition of police authorities and the creation of Police and Crime Commissioners, as well as the establishment of the College of Policing. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) have also been given additional powers. Tom Winsor’s Independent Review of Police Officer and Staff Remuneration and Conditions, along with the Hutton Review of Public Sector Pensions introduced the most significant reforms to police pay and conditions of service for generations. Significant as those reforms have been, they are not the end of the story. There is much still to be done to complete their implementation. Furthermore, policing faces a range of intense challenges to which it must respond: fast changing technology and cultural shifts mean the old investigative and operational approaches may no longer be as effective. There has been extensive media coverage of allegations of police corruption and of failures by police officers to investigate crimes properly due to incompetence, prejudice or lack of resources. The public is more demanding of those who serve it, including the police. All this comes at a time of financial austerity; if levels of service for the public are to be maintained, the police must work more innovatively and more collaboratively, both within policing and with other agencies, than ever before. The Home Office is responsible for a range of major technology change programme which are vital for the future success of police forces and other law enforcement partners. The three major programmes are: • Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme (ESMCP) and the Airborne Data Link (ADL) project. • Biometrics Programme, which aims to consolidate multiple existing capabilities for fingerprints, DNA and facial images. • Law Enforcement Data Programme, which will develop the future digital, data and mobile services that support law enforcement activity, replacing or modernising a range of existing systems. There is real benefit in having a coordinated approach to delivery of those programmes. We are therefore seeking a portfolio director to oversee the law enforcement technology portfolio.
