Report Assaults - they're not part of the job.

Operation Hampshire Workshop for forces as pilots begin in forces.

A few months ago the NEP were approached by former Chief Constable Andy Rhodes who has retained his involvement in the National Police Wellbeing Service and Oscar Kilo.

He was interested to understand if the Microsoft 365 productivity tools could be used to support the work they were doing under the Op Hampshire banner to monitor assaults on officers and staff and the support provided after such incidents.

Microsoft agreed to work with us on this important project and we are now at the stage where, with the support of Microsoft Gold Partner Agilisys we have an initial product which we are looking to pilot in a number of forces.

​​​​​​​The NEP / Op Hampshire / Agilisys Partnership is establishing a simple, nationally consistent approach to 'ensure all officers and staff have instant access to a simple, quick and consistent way of reporting assaults against all those in the police service 24/7 using the existing technology platforms which will enable leaders at all levels to take action and decisions based on real time accurate data.'

I.e. at “3 am a Sgt can take less than 5 minutes to reports an assault on a member of their team and the this data then triggers appropriate long and short term response ranging from immediate wellbeing support to strategic changes to training, decision making or equipment.”

It is important to add that there has been no development cost to policing to this point and the application is designed to work with the Microsoft 365 licences which forces already have. In the longer term there are aspirations for national recording and we are discussing how this could take place with the minimum of financial impact.

We are holding a workshop on Thursday 21st October between 3pm and 4:30pm to build understanding across policing on how they will be able to access this standardised approach from the National Enabling Programme, once the final testing is completed.

We will provide an update on the progress of development and testing and the next

This workshop will showcase the app for relevant force representatives and then have a technical breakout session to provide more details on it’s make up and application.
