The Home Office is working closely with policing on technology investment plans.

The current police settlement includes both a significant portfolio of Home Office led technology programmes as well as the Police Transformation Fund which supports a further group of national and local police led programmes. These are delivering transformational opportunities for officers including mobile communications, biometrics and programmes to improve contact with the public. As part of preparation for a spending review we are designing plans which build on these programmes as well as seeking innovative solutions to more complex problems.
