The digital revolution is profoundly changing our society, bringing challenges as well as opportunities for police forces, who need to reflect the attitudes of the communities they serve. Almost every investigation includes digital media – from mobile phone downloads, to images, video, CCTV footage, GPS mapping data, and more. While digital footprints can help solve crime, they also create a challenge: all this data needs to be collated and managed in line with legislation, such as GDPR. Currently, many of these processes are still managed manually and with paper. The workload is spiralling so much that police officers are having to spend more and more time at their desks. So much so that big dividends can be achieved if we can reduce the paperwork burden. According to our research, just a 1% reduction in admin tasks for a police force equals 15 extra police officers on the street.
