Partnership Intelligence Portal Campaign

What is Partnership Intelligence Portal?

The Partnership Intelligence Portal (PIP) provides a platform to share information with West Yorkshire Police (WYP) in a safe, protected, and direct way.

The type of information shared could cover a variety of areas, such as:

  • Information about a concerning incident
  • Suspicious activity
  • An unusual exchange between two or more people
  • Something that makes a professional uncomfortable

This information helps build a picture of our district’s communities and any concerns or criminal activity that could be taking place – helping to inform police’s priorities and any action taken.

By being able to understand local issues, which otherwise may not be known, it better allows the police to help keep communities safe. For example, information from different sources may enable the police to identify hotspots and areas where child exploitation is taking place.

The problem

Unfortunately the PIP is not widely known and utilised by the variety of professionals who can access it and submit information.

Support is needed to raise awareness of the Partnership Intelligence Portal, its purpose and value, and where appropriate encourage information to be submitted. That’s where the PIPup internal campaign comes in.

How your organisation can help

Support the joint PIPup campaign running 7 – 11 June by Wakefield Safeguarding Children Partnership (WSCP) and West Yorkshire Police (WYP) to raise the profile and awareness of the PIP – as well as encourage professionals to pipe up (or PIPup!) in using the portal as part of their practice.

You can do this by:

  • Sharing information on your internal website about the PIP
  • Sharing messages through internal newsletters and emails to staff about the PIP
  • Providing an opportunity for staff to review the portal and the supporting guidance available

To help you do this we have provided the following – click the link to access

Resources to train and brief staff link

West Yorkshire Police have developed a PowerPoint presentation and video which explains why submitting intelligence through the Partnership Intelligence Portal (PIP) is key in helping the Police keep communities safe.

It covers the role of the PIP, how information is used, and examples of how intelligence is used to help the police. It also provides detail on how to gain access if you haven’t already.

You can view the presentation here and video here.

In addition to this, the Wakefield Safeguarding Children Partnership has also compiled a ‘One Minute Guide’ to help explain to staff what intelligence sharing is and how it can be used to safeguarding children and communities.
