A vital part in providing accurate information to our officers
The Police National Computer (PNC) is a database used by law enforcement organisations across the United Kingdom and other non-law enforcement agencies.
Originally developed in the early 1970s, the Police National Computer now consists of several databases available 24 hours a day. It gives access to information of national and local matters, including information on lost and stolen vehicles, insurance and text records, and any records of persons with criminal convictions.
Across the UK there are over 13 million person records, all of which must be kept up to date, which is where our PNC Administrators come in. They operate 24/7 to ensure any activity that takes place in the county, such as results of court cases, bail conditions for people detained and protection notices, are accurate and up to date in our records.
These records help other members of the Control Room and our officers out and about when risk assessing new and ongoing incidents or people they are dealing with, so that we can keep them and the public safe at all times.
