CLIO is an extremely versatile management system used by police and other law enforcement agencies for managing critical Incidents, crimes in action and slow time investigations as well as being extensively used for event planning and Civil Resilience.
The police response to a crime in action is always the subject of scrutiny and the need to show that the operation was professionally and efficiently undertaken is imperative as these crimes often involve a threat to life.
The investigation of a fast time crime in action requires a reliable and proven process and also an auditable record of decisions made and the circumstances as they unfold. There needs to be a robust means of Communication, Collaboration and Co-ordination between all the various parties - together they will be the cornerstone of any successful operation.
It is equally important in any well managed operation for all authorised parties to share relevant information whether they are inter-force, inter-agency, regional or international colleagues thereby ensuring everyone is aware of the latest information and direction of the investigation - which will enable the operation to run efficiently and effectively and be properly managed.
