Disc systems – whether for Watch Groups, BIDs, retail multiples, shopping malls or commercial security providers – process data on hundreds of thousands of offenders and incidents each year.
The benefits to the police from working with Disc are game-changing.
Disc for Police enables them to do so, delivering immediate internal performance and productivity enhancements as well as important benefits for the communities they serve.
For Police Crime Commissioners, Disc represents a unique opportunity to build effective neighbourhood and community policing by embracing new technology to close the ‘policing gap’.
Every Disc system is independently administrated, configured and controlled. However, each can link with any number of others to share current-awareness information and to access each other’s databases to identify travelling or prolific offenders.
Disc for Police enables constabularies to link into these networks across their force area, achieving compelling benefits: accessing previously unavailable low-level offender data and intelligence; monitoring all crime reports from each local Disc system; one-click sharing of police news and alerts through each local Disc implementation to their thousands of individual users; secure MOPI-compliant information-sharing with local Disc systems; online, paperless and automated management of Information Sharing Agreements, and more….
