Cheshire, Warrington and Halton Information Consortium

This public service partnership, comprising local councils, police and fire services, uses Esri’s ArcGIS platform to share facts about criminal activities and anti-social behaviour. With easy access to up-to-date information and improved data analysis capabilities, the partners are saving an estimated £20,000 a year, while also combating crime more effectively.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • ArcGIS analyses data from multiple sources, allowing detailed fortnightly tactical assessments to be produced more quickly and cost effectively than before. 


  • Partners save time as they no longer have to distribute their data to different parties; they simply upload it to ArcGIS once for everyone to view. 



  • The GIS solution provides new insight into crime and anti-social behaviour, which partners use to inform crime prevention and detection strategies, helping to protect citizens. 


"Now, the data analysts can use CO-STAR to do it all with a few clicks of a mouse...We estimate that we will achieve savings of £20,000 per year from this use of CO-STAR alone."

Phil Christian, Project Lead, seconded to Cheshire County Council
