1 MINUTES OF LAST MEETING
 The minutes of the meeting held 14 September 2012 were accepted as a true record of the meeting. 

2 MATTERS ARISING – ACTION SHEET
 
• X400 Gateway Replacement Project
• PNC Auditor
• PNC Browser replacement
• Frequency of meetings – see AOB

Action schedule updated.

3 MATTERS ARISING FROM REGIONAL PNC MEETING
 Liz Ellison updated:
Only one issue of note and that was in relation to the work ongoing for cross border arrests and the creation of a PNC on line process for handing over forensics data.  It is known as the ‘ handshake agreement’ and will be another screen within the PNC record.  See below for further information. 

4 MATTERS ARISING FROM NATIONAL P4G GROUP MEETING
 Liz Ellison updated:
Continuing from above, the Home Office (PNC Services) are working on the code to allow cross border process of offenders (on arrest).
The business case is currently being written and the working group is in the process of devising appropriate process maps for all fingerprints and DNA business areas.
They are also working on PNC issues that may or may not arise as part of the process.
The business case will be presented to the PNC Names Group and then P4G where ACC Pryde is expected to support the changes and allocate a priority grade.
The proposal/business case will then go to Ministers at the Home Office for assessment, prioritisation and priority grading.  Realistically this will fall below the current high priority being given to requirements of the Protection of Freedoms Act.
 
5 CID 9 ERROR RATE REPORT
 This item was to be removed from the agenda but a discussion took place around this issue and the impact upon Crime Mapper.

Decision taken to continue feeding these ‘errors’ to officers and include District CID 9 ’champions’.

ACTION: Current District Chief Inspector representatives to nominate one SPOC for their district to be copied into returns sent to officers.

6 NCPE CODE OF PRACTICE PERFORMANCE STATS
 Liz Ellison updated:
November 2012: 
Arrest/summons reports entered within 1 day – 91.8% (target 90%):
Percentage of Court Disposals entered within 10 days – 89.3% (target 75%):

7 SCHENGEN INFORMATION SYSTEM (SIS II)
 
Testing April 2013.  Go Live still October 2014.
No further information available.

8 ANY OTHER BUSINESS
 1. FREQUENCY OF MEETINGS

Discussion took place in relation to the future of the Steering Group meetings.  Strategic issues could in any case be best addressed via the IMB.

Liz suggested we follow the Humberside model of bi annual meetings and form a force PNC Working Group or User Group.  This could involve representatives at a more practitioner level from PNC Bureau, Training, Central Ticket Office, MIP, CJAD (both Custody and CJU?) etc.
 
ACTION:  Supt Moran to discuss proposal to reduce frequency of meetings with ACC Sahota.

ACTION: Liz to explore specific attendees for the new User Group.

2. Child Sexual Exploitation – New PNC Marker Proposal

Liz has submitted a request for change to the national PNC groups proposing a new information marker for PNC. If a subject has been involved in activity contrary to the Sexual Offences Act 2003 appertaining to grooming/sexual exploitation of children the marker would be a mandatory requirement.

Mock screen shot and CRQ Business case attached to the minutes.

Those in attendance agreed and supported this proposal.   The business case has already been supported by the NE Regional PNC Reps and will now be aired at the PNC Names Group mid January.  If supported the P4G will be asked to support and prioritise the change at their meeting on the 31st January.

ACTION: Liz to feedback progress.
