We are prioritising the introduction of new technology so that we can make the best use of the information that is available. Data and information is important to make the right decisions and to improve the service. We are all used to doing business and shopping online and policing needs to catch up with these developments.
Frontline officers and staff are now using smartphones and tablets across Greater Manchester. Thousands of transactions are now being done on the new technology away from police stations. It means officers can stay out in communities and still get the paperwork done.
Body worn video has also been introduced across Greater Manchester and this means we have better evidence available to help when dealing with incidents, arrests and prosecutions.
We are also looking to develop technology that will improve the service people can access and this will mean a new look website to be revealed in 2017.
