That’s potentially over 101,000 officers and over 47,000 police staff in the UK plus over 12,000 in New Zealand with FREE access to Policing Insight.

Key policing organisations such as Scottish Police Authority, Policing Authority (RoI)HMICFRS, College of Policing, Police ICT Company, Association of Police and Crime Commissioners and the Youth Justice Board also have organisation wide subscriptions.

In addition, most academic institutions with policing or criminology departments have subscriptions to Policing Insight so if you are a student or staff member you may also have FREE access to Policing Insight.

We also have a growing community of suppliers subscribing to Policing Insight, to keep up with latest thinking in policing and criminal justice. CoPaCC’s ‘Police ICT: User Perspectives’ survey and report, also provides valuable frontline insight for suppliers and other policing stakeholders. Look out for the indepth ‘Police ICT: Force Focus’ reports that deep dive the survey data from the 10 forces providing the largest response to the survey.

This growing community of police and criminal justice readers benefit from in-depth articles and reports looking at new thinking in policing and criminal justice. The Media Monitor service provides a daily brief of the latest news, analysis and reports from the media and police and criminal justice organisations. It is also a valuable research tool with all posts tagged in detail creating a searchable database of over 26,000 posts.

We are hugely grateful to all the organisations subscribing on behalf of their employees and recognising the value of our mission to provide a platform for police and criminal justice stakeholders to share and source progressive ideas and knowledge.
