DISC is ideal for sharing sensitive personal data between different organisations working together across a local area.
That's why, for example, DISC is used by groups of organisations that come together to share information for the purpose of crime prevention and detection across towns, city-centres or rural areas. At the most recent count (June 2018) over 160 crime-reduction partnerships, covering more than 400 towns, city-centres and rural areas, use DISC throughout the UK.
And for partnerships that run local Banning or Exclusion Schemes, DISC provides tools to enable simple, efficient scheme-management - always in strict compliance with all-important legal obligations.
With DISC, neighbouring partnerships can - with the mutual consent of each participating administrator - link together to 'cross-publish' news and alerts to each others' members, and to search each others' DISC systems to help identify travelling or prolific offenders.
Police can share Offender data with partnerships efficiently and compliantly through DISC's secure environment, and publish alerts and news across multiple partnerships instantly.
And DISC's 'Partnership Engagement Platform' enables Police to support all partnerships (not only DISC-enabled ones) efficiently and effectively, access consolidated intelligence, manage their Information Sharing Agreements online and much, much more...

DIRECT-TO-POLICE CRIME REPORTING
DISC enables Incident Reports to be 'escalated' into crime reports, with optional wotness statements, direct to police '101' desks. Businesses report more crime more quickly; 101 desks operate more efficiently and at lower cost-per-report.
Behind every successful crime reduction partnerships are people: local business-owners and managers, and police. Norwich BID has drawn them together through practical initiatives and online information-sharing. The result: more participation and more engagement.Read more
