Building the picture: an inspection of police information management

Summary

In March 2013, HMIC published “Mistakes were made” HMIC’s review into allegations and intelligence material concerning Jimmy Savile between 1964 and 2012. The report concluded that mistakes had been made in the handling of information and allegations into sexual abuse, and committed to a further review of information management practices.

HMIC therefore conducted a review of the business processes which police forces in England and Wales use to collect, record, process, evaluate and share information. This report sets out our findings.
