STUDY BACKGROUND: The ‘Mobile Working Project’ is part of Police Scotland’s ‘Digitally Enabled Policing Programme’ (DEPP), which seeks to equip operational officers with a digital mobile policing solution to replace the traditional paper notebook system, to provide remote, live access to key policing information systems.
The project’s aim is to increase efficiency and improve frontline service delivery, and visibility, for both officers and the communities of Scotland.

STUDY AIM: The research study’s aim was to evaluate the implementation, impact, and benefits realisation, of the national phased roll-out of digital mobile policing across Police Scotland.
The evaluation was undertaken concurrently with the phased Divisional roll-out of mobile devices, to identify associated issues, benefits and challenges; which will inform the final stages of roll-out to over 10000 police officers across Scotland.
