Brighton & Hove BCRP’s secure Intranet is provided by local company Littoralis which has developed an App that is available free to all members of the scheme to allow them to view prolific offender mugshots on the move.
Having pictures of offenders or ‘persons of interest’ available on portable devices is especially convenient for security staff in retail environments or pubs and clubs who want to check if an individual is excluded.
Littoralis director Dave Platten explains, "It's this growing demand from users that lead us to develop our App which offers a browseable list of mugshots, optimised for Smartphones such as the i-Phone and Android devices. Once logged in, users can swiftly scroll down a list of names, with mugshots each displaying icons showing which of them are excluded by members of their partnerships"
Because Smartphones are great for displaying information where and when you need it but are too small and fiddly if you actually want to submit incident reports the new app includes a unique 'Remind me' function.
If a user wants to submit an incident report about someone displayed on the browseable list, he or she can click on a 'Remind me' link displayed in the App. This immediately generates an email to the user which they can open later, when they're sitting at a desk-top or lap-top computer - much more practical for entering incident reports.
The email confirms the time and date of the reminder, and features a click-on link to the BCRP Intranet Incident Report form, ready-loaded with the name and other relevant personal details of the offender involved. The user just clicks on the link and goes straight to the form while the incident is still fresh in the user's mind.
