E-CINS is high-tech computer system, funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner, to act as a central hub for information, bringing reports of a range of issues together in one place.
Previously, partner agencies held information on separate systems and shared their knowledge in face-to-face meetings.
E-CINS will allow case workers to have quick-time access to reports, hold virtual meetings and to share information and make decisions in quick-time.
This will minimise delays in processes and avoid the duplication of more than one agency visiting someone.
Local authorities, housing associations and other service providers will use E-CINS and Cleveland Police has initiated training on its use.
Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger said: “E-CINS is used successfully in other parts of the country so I was keen to explore it further as an option for Teesside.
“I’m pleased that we are now able to launch the system, which I believe is money well spent to improve the way in which police and partners deal with neighbourhood issues and predominantly antisocial behaviour. If we can tackle antisocial behaviour successfully and nip it in the bud, then we can reduce the devastating impact it has on communities in the longer term.”
A fixed-term role has been developed to develop and expand use of the E-CINS programme across Cleveland Police and their partner organisations.
