Blue Lights

We help shape the future of how UK policing harness their data, offering secure and cost-effective police data analytics solutions.

Our Expertise in Blue Lights

A rise in serious violent crime and falling detection rates in some parts of the country have brought political focus onto the resilience of a model of policing, that has long been the envy of the world. Despite evolving, UK police forces still have some way to go to fully adapt to the profound and continuing shifts in patterns of crime, society, policy, and technology.

Simpson Associates is a full-service police data analytics consultancy. We have worked with several forces, including Cheshire Constabulary and West Yorkshire Police. We offer secure and easy access to data for analysis, incident crime reporting, crime mapping, and demand planning, and fleet management solutions. Our focus is on enabling UK police forces to do more with less, as budgets are squeezed.

Incident and Crime Reporting Icon Incident and Crime Reporting

Many police forces have access to a front-end application that can provide an element of incident and crime reporting information in real time. However, for the majority, these applications can be difficult to use, inflexible, or outdated.

Using a data analysis system that is not fit for purpose can become an extra barrier to accessing information, creating manual and data intensive cases. With a lack of police analyst resource, this can result in hundreds of man-hours to produce critical reports.

Simpson Associates is a full service analytics consultancy who has worked with several police forces, enabling them to benefit from having one source system that brings all data together in one place. They then simply need to log into Power BI or whatever reporting tool they use, to access the information they need. From department heads to officers, station managers to sergeants, staff right across the force can re-allocate the time spent looking for information into keeping the streets safer.

Many police forces we speak to understand the importance of maintaining call centre service levels, to ensure agents can answer calls in the time needed. An understaffed workforce can impact  on officer deployment, and their ability to quickly deal with incidents quickly.

If your force is understaffed, your service level drops. This can have a knock-on effect on non-emergency calls, which may face longer wait times due to all staff directed to emergency calls. Being able to understand what demands are being placed on your team is therefore imperative.

Simpson Associates is a full service analytics consultancy. We can enable better decision making with telephone reporting analytics technology. Our solution can help you understand what resources are available, and if they are suitable to meet the demands being placed on your team. You can also determine what skills are required at peak times, and how to avoid being overstaffed during quiet times to help minimise the risk of officers and call centre staff being over worked at another part of the day.

Fleet Management Analytics Icon Fleet Management Analytics

Many police forces are looking to adapt Fleet Management Analytics to improve the management of their fleet of cars, using accurate data to maximize the efficiency of each vehicle and officer.

 

Live vehicle mapping can be used to see which officer is on route and who is on scene. This can be overlaid with historic data, that can be used to understand how long they are typically required to be on scene at any particular crime. It can alert the controller if an officer is taking abnormal about of time, allowing the controller to deploy more personnel if there is an issue.

 

Simpson Associates is a full service data analytics consultancy. We have worked with several police forces to implement Fleet Management Analytics, and can help your force better understand, control, and manage the time it takes to be at and attend a crime scene. Your force gets to improve fleet management and ensure the public is being served in a more efficient manner.

Data Quality Management Icon Data Quality Management

Poor data is holding many police forces back. It may be preventing the integration of case management systems containing important information such as information about crimes, missing persons, suspects, and witnesses.

Your organisation may have attempted to combine data warehousing with analytics. However, if sitting on top of existing systems, this may not provide the most transparency when it comes to data. The result: a path with no clear view of how to get data in the right shape for analysis.

Our data solution gets your data into the right shape, fast. It does this by generating applications that combine data integration, data quality, and master data management to deliver information from one single trusted source that can be hosted in the cloud or on premise.

We can deliver a swift installation by a team of experts, able to reduce the time taken to complete a typical project from years, to months, to even weeks.
