(NYSE:ACN) is developing a new national crime management system for the Norwegian
National Police Directorate (POD) to support police investigations
and criminal prosecutions in Norway. The company was selected as the
consultant and information
technology partner under a contract signed in June 2011.
The crime management system will enable the Norwegian police force to
better manage, link and analyze case information and intelligence for
greater reliability and consistency across law enforcement, police
investigations, border management, emergency response and case
administration. Accenture secured the contract after a competitive
"Accenture has a proven track record for the successful delivery of
transformational programs," said Vidar Refvik, director of the Norwegian
Police Force. "The company's strong technology and business
transformation focus, along with its diverse capabilities, were
important factors in our selection of Accenture as lead partner."
Accenture's management consulting services will include managing the
project from outset to completion and designing police process
models to meet client needs. The company also will develop a robust
and secure IT architecture to support high levels of system usage across
the entire police force.
The system will be highly flexible to enable the integration of mobile
solutions. It also will support and comply with all criminal justice
legislation and meet all legal requirements for how case data is
accessed, stored and traced for investigative purposes. And, it will
provide improved user access to accurate
case information across multiple devices and locations and replace a
number of existing information systems currently in use.
Daly, who leads Accenture's global Defense
& Public Safety business, said, "Events of recent years have
brought to light the need for a more holistic model for information
management and greater interoperability between public safety agencies
both domestically and internationally. Accenture is working with several
clients around the world to implement similar crime management solutions
as police forces and other public
safety organizations seek to gain
insights from the valuable information they hold while adapting to
changing legislative requirements."
"This new crime management system will enable intelligence-driven
policing by providing users with accurate and timely information to
support their investigations and prosecutions," added Lars Bestum,
senior executive, Accenture Health & Public Service Norway. "The
accumulation of knowledge within crime management systems enables police
forces to better manage, link and analyze information for greater
reliability and consistency across law enforcement -- ultimately
increasing the protection and security of citizens and society."
