The Government is clear that local policing priorities should be driven by local need, not the Home Office. Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) and Chief Constables are best placed to determine these priorities, and are accountable to the communities they serve. As HOLMES is a capability supporting these priorities, it is only right that this responsibility has been transferred to PCCs.
We have established the Police ICT Company to provide the requisite procurement capability to PCCs to help them collectively manage and procure IT contracts and systems. As the company will be owned and led by PCCs, it is now for them to take immediate decisions on the specific functions of the company.
