Police ICT Company/Chorus collaboration could save 1.5 million hours

27/02/2018

A new collaboration between The Police ICT Company and Chorus Intelligence has the potential to save police forces up to 1.5 million hours UK-wide.

The Chorus data cleansing and analytics software now falls under a commercial collaboration that ensures police forces have access to the latest intelligence technology when conducting investigations.

Time savings when using Chorus can be substantial due to the sheer volume and variety of digital evidence that is available, and it has evolved as a product to allow users to spot connections in and between cases as well as creating reports that can be used as evidence in court. It has been estimated that up to 1.5 million hours that Analysts currently spend cleansing data could be saved through Chorus software. This estimate has been corroborated by a case study involving Northamptonshire Police.

With the collaboration now agreed, force purchasing and IT departments can transact with pace, but still have the confidence that they are using a trusted vendor and securing the best price for their force whilst meeting their procurement compliance responsibilities. Police forces can now secure licences for Chorus using the familiar G-Cloud platform or by contacting Chorus or the Police ICT Company directly.

The Police ICT Company’s CEO, Ian Bell, said: “This is a fantastic collaboration that provides UK police forces with access to software that will help their Analysts do time consuming tasks considerably quicker and easier.

“The latest data analytics technology is needed now more than ever to combat all forms of crime and with this collaboration in place we will give forces the opportunity to exploit the technology that will help keep the public safe.”

Boyd Mulvey, Founder and CEO of Chorus Intelligence Ltd, said: “This is a great achievement for Chorus and just goes to show the importance of our software to the Analyst and Investigator communities. We already have over a thousand users in the UK and with this agreement in place it should allow more forces to take advantage of the technology whilst saving the public sector precious time and money.”
