Policing Insight is in an important position to help share good and best practice on the global policing response to Covid-19, thereby complementing and supporting the work of bodies such as INTERPOL.

I have been writing for Policing Insight for over 3 years now and having seen the type of content they published, I worked on getting the university here at Christ Church to subscribe to the publication. Policing Insight offers a unique read for practitioners and academics across the criminal justice system and raises excellent questions about current affairs as well as regularly overviewing academic research which is relevant to the profession. It is challenging, diverse and inclusive in its approach which is what academia and policing should be in this day and age. There are a range of different individuals who write for the publication – at all ranks and roles plus those outside of policing as an occupation. This offers information on innovation and creativity across the service and then encourages academics to consider the evidence base around these new and diverse options. I really enjoy reading the pieces and am keen to endorse it to my students. It can even help those interested in research by asking questions about current day policing. I would always advocate this publication and very much support its progress.

NICE has had a successful partnership with Policing Insight since 2018 when we sponsored additional questions on the CoPaCC National Police ICT Survey; the sponsorship enabled us to ask thousands of frontline officers and staff about their digital evidence capabilities and user experience. Policing Insight produced and published a bespoke CoPaCC Digital Evidence Management: User Perspectives Report providing valuable insight into requirements and plans of UK police forces. NICE have also successfully promoted key events on Policing Insight through advertising campaigns using advertorial, web buttons and Policing Insight’s social media channels. NICE were also pleased and honoured to be founder sponsors of the inaugural World Class Policing Awards in 2019 organised by Policing Insight, which recognised outstanding policing in the UK and around the world. It was great to support the recognition of officers and staff at such a prestigious event with superb opportunities for the NICE team to meet the finalists and senior policing representatives from the UK and around the world.

The world of policing seems forever fraught with continual challenges and ever-changing demands across the political and operational spectrums. Policing Insight contains relevant and timely articles on the key topics that matter across all areas of policing. These articles are always well-written and balanced, and the profile, seniority and relevance of some of the key contributors demonstrates a good level of credibility, and speaks to the high regard with which it is held. Our organisational subscription is a great way of keeping the whole team up to speed with the many and varied developments that impact our clients on a daily basis.

As keen policing media observers, we have seen Policing Insight enjoying tremendous growth in its UK and international audience since it launched in 2015. It uniquely attracts a global audience of senior police and criminal justice leaders, key influencers and decision makers. Recognising the fantastic reach of Policing Insight, we have booked a major media campaign with Policing Insight in the full confidence that our message will reach our key demographic. For us, having examined the Police Media Market there was really no better choice than Policing Insight as our media partner. We have also taken out an organisational subscription to Policing Insight. Their articles are very informative, and a really useful way for our Chorus team to stay informed about the emerging policing issues of the day.

During 2019 the Eastern Region Forces and PCCs were actively considering the potential to converge IT and establish a region-wide ICT function. Part of the business case development involved a detailed ‘as is’ assessment. On this basis we approached CoPaCC to explore the potential to a) utilise their end-user survey data from forces, and b) specify a series of analysis at Force or ‘cluster’ level for specific variables. The Policing Insight Team rapidly prepared a detailed report with ‘clean’, informative graphics containing quantitate descriptions with insightful analysis. Subsequently a second phase of work was commissioned to benchmark Eastern Region data against the ‘best in class’. We received a responsive, customer-oriented product that was produced to tight deadlines and within our moderate budget.

At a time when Policing is going through a fast digital transformation and looking to invest in a significant amount of new technology, reports like this are absolutely vital for me as I decide how best taxpayers’ money is spent. Hearing the views of those Police Officers, Staff and Volunteers is important, particularly when Forces seek to share software and devices, so that I can assure myself that the suppliers are providing something that is beneficial to the Force and will be welcomed by those who are using it. PCCs can also hold Chief Constables and providers to account for what is delivered. I would urge suppliers to take this feedback seriously and support those Police Forces in improving user satisfaction.
Our partnership with Policing Insight on the recent road safety webinar worked very well for Drivetech. They helped us bridge the gap between discussing our services with clients on the one hand and generating a genuine and important debate with stakeholders on the other. I am convinced that the partnership increased our reach and was also undoubtedly influential in helping us secure such an impressive panel of speakers. We are actively exploring opportunities to repeat the exercise and would welcome the chance to partner with Policing Insight again on a future occasion.
