Ageing Police Scotland computer system needs upgrade

Police Scotland needs funding totalling more than £200 million to modernise its ageing computer systems amid growing concerns over cyber-enabled crime, according to Deputy Chief Officer David Page.

Police Scotland’s £46m i6 computer project was cancelled at the eleventh hour in 2016 after testing discovered a series of glitches.

Liam said: “This is yet another example of the SNP government failing to properly manage the IT needs of devolved areas. Those failings are now set to land the taxpayer with a bill in excess of £200m. 

“And if previous IT projects under the watch of the SNP are anything to go by, this figure will merely be the tip of the iceberg.”
