Badger presents to National Operational Policing Seminar

Thursday 6th March 2014

John Langley was invited to provide a presentation to the National Operational Planning Seminar held at the National College of Policing at Ryton-On-Dunsmore, Coventry on 6th and 7th March 2014.

John spoke about the increasing number of police forces and other agencies now using their CLIO systems for event management and planning. He explained that police forces are finding CLIO to be a valuable tool for use in a whole range of operational policing aspects including carnivals, concerts, international sporting events, royal visits, state visits, football matches, race meetings, party political conferences and for policing marches and demonstrations.

John described how large parts of the UK including London, Manchester, Glasgow the whole of Wales and other city, urban and rural areas across the UK now use CLIO within their Local Resilience Forums for managing multi agency operations and for briefings, situation reports and tasking when Strategic Coordination Centres are activated.

John told the delegates that police forces who have already purchased an enterprise licence to use CLIO are able to widen its use to include operational policing matters at no additional cost.

Following the presentation, a large number of delegates asked for a demonstration of the system, which was provided and as a result arrangements have been made to visit a number of police forces to discuss extending CLIO use.
