New chair on board at Police ICT Company


The Police ICT Company’s board of directors has appointed Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Stephen Mold, as its new chair.

Mold replaces Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, who stood down in order to focus on her new role as chair of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners. She has been in post at the ICT Company since 2016.

According to a spokesperson Mold will be: “Working closely with the board to further drive the company’s work on exploring and developing technological solutions that will meet the needs of all forces, while delivering efficiencies through economies of scale.”

“Together with [CEO] Ian Bell, Stephen aims to challenge the company, professionals and commercial systems providers to ensure planned investment takes account of local and national priorities, and that solutions really do meet the needs of police forces.”

Speaking of his appointment Mold said: “From maintaining and counselling on the national capability model, design standards and architecture, to supporting enhanced service delivery through innovative technology, the company has a big role to play in the policing landscape.

“One of my top priorities - as covered in my Northamptonshire Police and Crime Plan - is to improve and update technology systems and applications to increase efficiencies.”
