Representatives from PDMS and The Police National Legal Database team are attending the Transformation in the Police Conference.

This year promises to be an unprecedented time of change for the UK police with the creation of new national agencies and the election of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC). With a varied agenda and speaker list, including Tom Winsor, a wide range of topics will be covered including collaboration between forces, partnerships with the private and public sectors and the procurement of central and local services.

PDMS' Giles Milner and Nigel Hughes from The Police National Legal Database (PNLD) team, one of PDMS' longstanding clients, are attending the event to highlight some of their innovative solutions to help the general public find out more about the role of the new Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) and to also help the PCC's communicate efficiently and cost effectively with their stakeholders.

Drawing on the success of their Ask the Police website, developed by PDMS, PNLD have created an Ask the Commissioner web portal which provides an online knowledge bank where the public can quickly and easily find out answers to frequently asked questions.

PNLD and PDMS are also offering a fully managed website service to help the new PCCs get up and running quickly and cost effectively. The website will enable PCCs to communicate and interact online with all of their stakeholders, including their local communities, regional and national agencies including Custody Visitors and Police and Crime Panels. Through PNLD, we are also offering our DoxShare as an effective way for PCC's to securely manage, store and distribute documents such as minutes, reports and policies.
