The National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) Data and Analytics Board are delighted to announce the release of a series of short data awareness videos. These are aimed at enhancing awareness and fostering professional development within data literacy in the policing community.
As part of the ongoing commitment to excellence, these engaging videos offer a light introduction to data management, providing essential context for the pivotal role data plays in modern policing.
Aimee Smith Director of Data at the Metropolitan Police Service, and Co-Chair of the NPCC Data and Analytics Board said:
“The primary objective is to demystify the complexities of data, empowering police staff and officers with the knowledge required to navigate this dynamic landscape effectively.”
The videos are easily accessible via YouTube, ensuring convenient viewing for all members of the policing community:
Aimee went on to praise the dedication of the volunteers on the NPCC Data and Analytics Board and the Police Digital Service, adding:
"These videos are a testament to the volunteers who tirelessly contribute above and beyond their daily responsibilities to develop resources that will benefit front line policing over the coming months”.
Policing professionals are encouraged to actively engage with these videos and promote them internally within their forces. The videos can form the basis of in-house training packages and should be considered a sector-wide free resource.
