The Information Systems Strategy for the Police Service (ISS4PS) is an overarching strategy for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Information Systems (IS) for the Police service across the whole of England and Wales.

The ISS4PS policies calls on the police service to work together to adopt common standards, products, common administrative and citizen-focused services to help improve police performance and efficiency, and to reduce costs by establishing foundations and defining governance, securing alignment and delivering joined-up services across each force. 

As a result, in the coming years, the ISS4PS will become a major pillar underpinning police efforts to support Transformational Government, the creation of strategic forces, and be a key tool for the National Policing Improvement Agency.

It is important to note that the ISS4PS represents a collective view of key stakeholders ranging from the Home office, Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), Association of Police Authorities (APA), the various police forces and the Criminal Justice Information Technology (CJIT).
