Cadcorp technology will play a key role in the police force’s ICT infrastructure. The software will:
- provide sophisticated modelling and analytical capabilities for Crime and Intelligence Analysis
- deliver live locational data to the Wiltshire Police Command and Control system
- be used for tracking both personnel and vehicles in the force Automatic Resource Location System (ARLS)
- be used in the Emergency Communications Centre for logging and displaying the location of 999 calls and the response to those calls
- track the location of non-emergency calls in the Force Contact Centre

Mike O’Neil, CEO of Cadcorp said “We are pleased that Wiltshire Police has decided to base its handling of geographic information on Cadcorp’s GIS and web mapping technology. We look forward to working with the Force, and bringing the power of location awareness to their core business processes.”
About Wiltshire Police
The oldest county force in the country, Wiltshire Police was formed in 1839 and has a unique place in the history of policing. The Force is responsible for policing the county of Wiltshire and borough of Swindon in South West England with some 1,200 police officers and 1,000 police staff.
The Force is committed to making Wiltshire the safest county in the country and serves a population of around 635,000 people across 1,346 square miles - from Swindon's lively urban areas to the rolling countryside and iconic sites such as Stonehenge.
Wiltshire Police is led by Chief Constable Brian Moore, who is supported by a team of three chief officers. The day-to-day policing services are delivered across the Force area, headed by a Chief Superintendent and supported by specialist units including highly trained police dogs and air support.
Working with local communities is an essential part of modern policing and the Force has established Neighbourhood Policing Teams, consisting of police officers, police community support officers (PCSOs) and special constables, who work closely with partner agencies to ensure the people of Wiltshire are kept safe, satisfied and confident with the service they receive.
