The Police National Computer (PNC) is a computer system used extensively by law enforcement organisations across the United Kingdom. Set up in 1974, it now consists of several databases available 24 hours a day, giving access to information of national and local matters. The PNC has undergone a number of changes which have been introduced gradually since its inception in 1974. The most notable of these was in the mid 1990s with the introduction of the Phoenix (Police and Home Office Enhanced Names Index) where the PNC took the format it has retained to this day.

dbo:abstract
  • The Police National Computer (PNC) is a computer system used extensively by law enforcement organisations across the United Kingdom. Set up in 1974, it now consists of several databases available 24 hours a day, giving access to information of national and local matters. As of May 2017, the Home Office states that there are over 12.2 million personal records, 58.5 million driver records, and 62.6 million vehicle records stored on the PNC. Since 1 April 2007, it has been maintained by the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) which inherited the activities of the now disbanded Police Information Technology Organisation (PITO). Prior to the establishment of PITO, the PNC was managed directly by the Home Office. The PNC has undergone a number of changes which have been introduced gradually since its inception in 1974. The most notable of these was in the mid 1990s with the introduction of the Phoenix (Police and Home Office Enhanced Names Index) where the PNC took the format it has retained to this day. (en)
