Funding enhancements for police technology
Undertaking in 2020
Contents

Overview

In 2015 the NSW Government announced funding of $100 million over four years to equip the NSW Police Force with new technology to respond to crime and enhance officer mobility. This investment established the ‘Policing for Tomorrow Fund’. Funded technologies have included body-worn video cameras, tablet computers, mobile fingerprint scanners and mobile drug detection devices.

This audit will consider whether the fund and its resourced technologies were managed effectively, including through driving and monitoring their intended benefits.
