Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Grove has announced an award from the Government to help improve the visibility of police officers and PCSOs.

The Home Office have confirmed that £1m from the Policing Innovation Fund has been awarded jointly to Humberside and South Yorkshire police forces to collaborate in developing Mobile Technology, including Tablet devices and lightweight laptops to free up more time for police officers and PCSO’s from admin duties so they can spend more time on the beat protecting communities.

The Innovation Fund was announced by the Government last November and applicants were invited to put forward ideas for improving policing. The bid for a share of the £20 million fund was made on behalf of the two forces in line with the qualifying criteria which required applications to “demonstrate innovation, an opportunity for collaboration and commitment to supporting improved digital working.”
