Cambridgeshire Constabulary Cuts Human Resources Costs by US$184,000 Amidst Growing Workload
Cambridgeshire Constabulary's wanted to improve on lagging performance of the constabulary's Human Resources (HR) function, following an inspection by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) in 2004 and leverage the full value of personnel resources, which account for 80% of budget, in order to manage a projected 12.5% expansion in population over nine years. The challenge was to gain accurate real-time data for reporting and strategy planning. Cambridgeshire Constabulary's selected National Strategy for Police Information Systems (NSPIS) HR, a pre-configured, police-specific solution based on Oracle Human Resources, developed by Oracle Certified Partner Cedar HR Ltd. It replaced multiple, standalone HR databases and disparate processes with a single source of accurate HR information and consistent personnel management procedures based on standard police practices.
