In­stant su­per polic­ing

Loughborough Echo - - LOOKING BACK -

A NEW method of fight­ing crime was in­tro­duced in Le­ices­ter­shire and Rut­land for the first time - in­stant polic­ing by com­puter.

An £18,000 com­puter meant that con­trol room staff at the force’s HQ in Lon­don Road, Le­ices­ter, could get in touch with 600 po­lice­men on the beat and 317 mo­bile men.

Chief Supt Regi­nald An­till hailed it as “the birth of in­stant su­per polic­ing.”
