UK - Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI)
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) polices the six counties of Northern Ireland — an area that includes the city of Belfast — and has a sworn strength of 7,500 officers. Northern Ireland’s 1.7 million-strong population is spread over 5,400 square miles. The ongoing transition from the Royal Ulster Constabulary, and the implications of the Patten Report and its 175 recommendations ranging across all aspects of policing, present unique challenges for the new era of peacetime policing in the province.
NicheRMS is the PSNI’s core operational information system, supporting the service’s transition to community-based policing. This single, unified system provides information on people, locations, vehicles and incidents, and supports an intelligence management capability compliant with the principles of the UK National Intelligence Model.
