The Digitally Enabled Policing Programme (DEPP), was formed to support the Joint Policing Strategy. Which aims to transform the police service over the next 10 years. The programme is divided into three work streams, Mobile Working, Bodyworn Video and Core Operational Solutions.
Police Scotland have delivered digital notebooks across frontline policing and are developing and introducing new applications which will support police officers with access to vital information and how they deliver policing in their local communities.
Body Worn Video
The introduction of BWV cameras to Armed Policing in October 2021 was a significant development for Scotland. Planning is underway to deliver body worn video cameras to operational officers across Scotland.
Core Operational Solutions (COS)
Core Operational Solutions (COS) is responsible for the delivery of national applications (Crime/Case/Productions/Warrants/INSIGHT) designed to streamline the recording and management of core operational information and supporting a range of policing activity.
