Sharing of information is critical to developing a clearer picture of local and wider issues, to inform the actions police need to take to reduce threat, harm and risk.
Hampshire Constabulary are seeking the support of partners, education staff and practitioners to share information known to them which, often without realisation, could provide crucial links where gaps in intelligence might exist.
To help improve information sharing, the CPI form gives professionals a safe and direct way to share non-urgent information with police relating to children/adults at risk of:
- Missing, Exploited, Trafficked
- Child Sexual Exploitation
- Criminal Exploitation
- Drug Related Harm
- Modern Day Slavery
- Community Cohesion
- Anti-Social Behaviour
- Organised Crime
The CPI Form: Use and Process Summary
If the information known to you is non-urgent, not a crime and a child/adult is not at immediate risk, this is appropriate to be shared as police intelligence using the CPI form. The CPI form is not a referral form, it is for sharing non-urgent information only specific to the risks listed above.
Upon receipt of a CPI form, intelligence handlers assess it to determine the level of risk and priority, this process can amount to one of the following outcomes:
- CPI sanitised an intelligence log created – added to police systems for officer awareness/action
- If information details a crime, this is tasked to the crime desk for allocation to be investigated
- If there is a concern for safety, it will be referred to the relevant safeguarding services/teams
- In some cases, no action will be taken
