North Yorkshire Police has been shortlisted for three awards at this year’s UK Public Sector Digital Awards for its NYP mobile smartphone app.

The awards are designed to recognise excellence in public sector ICT delivery and North Yorkshire Police is a finalist in three categories: Best example of digital transformation; Best example of ICT-enabled innovation and enterprise; and Best example of citizen engagement.

This app gives people in York and North Yorkshire the chance to see detailed crime data, witness appeals, safety advice and police team information for their neighbourhood, all via their mobile phone.

Devised by North Yorkshire Police`s web officer, Tom Stirling, the  app is designed to help forge greater links with the community by making information about the force easily available and allowing people to contact the police at the push of a button.

The awards ceremony, attended by ministers, top-civil servants and technology experts from the public and private sectors, will be held on Thursday 19 January at the London Guildhall.
