South Yorkshire Police

Working with Esri UK, South Yorkshire Police developed an innovative intranet-based solution that makes up-to-date intelligence about crime and anti-social behaviour accessible to community-based police officers. This ground-breaking GIS is helping the force to prevent crime and protect citizens, while also saving it £1 million a year.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • Over 4,000 people use the solution to get up-to-date information, which helps them to plan local policing activities more strategically and reduce crime.
  • Specialist crime analysts within the force save hours of time, as they no longer have to respond to individual requests for information.
  • The solution was developed by Esri UK for South Yorkshire Police, using Esri’s ArcGIS Server solution, and is the first system of its kind in the UK.


"Based on conservative estimates and our calculations to date, we expect to make savings in excess of £1 million per year."

Detective Inspector Gary Williams
