Empowering Communities Half Yearly Update


We have a few things to share with you that we’re excited about and that really helps to establish 
E-CINS’ place on the map.

We are pleased to announce that E-CINS has gone live in London with an Integrated Offender Management scheme that will see Newham accessing and sharing information with their partners via the E-CINS secure platform. E-CINS will provide a central information hub in respect of high profile offenders that can be shared across partnership boundaries and in real time providing detailed and heightened information that will lead to improved rehabilitative interventions.

E-CINS is now the fastest growing cloud-based multi-agency system in the UK and is live in over 25% of the police force areas in England and Wales. Based upon the current interest in E-CINS we expect to be live in 50% of the police force areas in 2015 and that doesn’t take into account every police force using E-CINS as part of national operations.

We were very pleased to be told by an NPIA lead that E-CINS is one of the very few applications that is IL3 accredited. See page 3 for details.

As a proven system and with many counties now entering their third year as E-CINS users, here’s a reminder of what the system is being used for currently and what it could be used for would add several more areas of business to this list:

  • Integrated Offender Management (IOM) plus five prisons access E-CINS in Staffordshire
  • Child Sexual Exploitation
  • Anti Social Behaviour
  • Vulnerable persons
  • Victims and Offenders
  • Family Intervention Programmes
  • ‘Troubled Families’
  • Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO’s)
  • Street Drinkers
  • Licensed premises (E-CINS has a built in risk score for each premises)
  • Hate Crime
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Restorative Justice
  • Acquisitive Crime
  • Gangs and Gang Violence
  • Environmental Health
  • Travellers
  • Missing Persons
  • Youth Crime
  • Rough Sleepers
  • Prostitution
  • Multi-Agency Operations
  • Community Link Alarm Scheme
  • Stalking (Paladin National Stalking Advocacy Program)

We have our second national E-CINS conference booked for 27th November and we have just held a round of user group meetings based upon Education, ASB and Troubled Families.

E-CINS also comes with a very clear, non-commercial, unambiguous all inclusive pricing model that means there are no additional costs and no limits on the number of users or organisations that can access the system. There are also no limits or extra charges in relation to the numbers of victims, offenders and vulnerable persons that can be managed on E-CINS. Our unlimited data policy also means that there are no extra charges in relation to archived profiles enabling practitioners to comply with regulations to keep their archived data for a length of time after they have finished working with them.
