I would like to understand if your police force uses a mobile app and if so, its associated costs. If there are multiple, I am specifically interested in understanding about the use of workforce apps used by officers day-to-day.
E.g. Police E-Box at Northumbria Police. Link: https://www.northumbria.police.uk/news_and_events/latest_news/2016/03/24/northumbria_police_invest_in_new_technology/
If possible, can you provide the following details in your response, please?
The name of the off-the-shelf product or public name of the internal solution.
If your app is purchased from a 3rd party or developed bespoke.
Annual expenditure. (Annual development cost or license fees for the app)
Android, iOS or Windows.
How long has the app been in use for? If it’s a licensed product, when does this license expire?
Please find attached our response.
