The police forces equipped with the National Strategy for Police Information Systems (NSPIS) for managing custody records and case files are shown in the following table.

The forces that have not contracted for the NSPIS products have implemented alternative custody and/or case preparation that conform to the same data standards.

All of these implementation projects are now completed or are in their final stages. The Metropolitan Police Service is introducing NSPIS case preparation in parallel with the deployment schedule for the HM Court Service Libra system. All 43 forces will have an approved custody of case preparation system live at all sites by the end of 2008.
