The net continues to tighten on serious crime in North West England and Wales, as the region’s Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) has adopted the cloud based software platform pam to aid its inter-agency initiatives. pam will equip ROCU for continued success in fighting organised crime by enabling effective partner working.
ROCU was set up in April 2008 when the six regional police forces – Merseyside, Lancashire, GMP, North Wales, Cumbria and Cheshire – formed a collaboration to tackle serious and organised crime across the North West. Since then, sentences of more than 500 years have been handed out, more than £2 million of stolen goods have been recovered and Class A drugs with a street value of more than £4million have been seized.
Speaking about the initiative, Alliantist CEO Mark Darby said “Organised crime affects us all, so we are very excited to work with North West ROCU and its partners to bring real, tangible benefits across the region. Our vision is for pam to enable the entire public service ecosystem to work together for stronger communities. This announcement is another step in that direction, building on existing successes with probation, policing and other essential providers across the public, private and voluntary sector.”
pam is an innovative software platform for change and relationship success, developed by Brighton based company Alliantist. It is used in the private sector, by the majority of Probation Trusts in England and Wales and by the Ministry of Justice, as well as third sector organisations. In policing it is used to improve efficiency, effectiveness and reduce costs
in inter-force collaboration, to improve partnership working with local authorities and non-statutory partners in integrated neighbourhood management and troubled family transformation. It is also being used to support and deliver a successful transition of Police Authorities to the new Police and Crime Commissioner role. Alliantist have set up a dedicated Community Interest Company, Achieve More CIC, as a commitment to reinvest into the community, as well as equip individuals and organisations that provide services within it.
