Chronicle Firearms Management is a unique Firearms Training and Operations Management System designed by police officers for police officers to encompass all aspects of firearms conflict management across a force collaboration or region. 

Linked to a standardised national curriculum Chronicle captures all the information required to assist forces with evidencing compliance with national standards, record operational data to inform the Strategic Threat & Risk Assessment process, record training, and planning of all firearms activity. A simple to use data entry method means large quantities of data can be easily and quickly recorded, the use of mobile data devices means there is no need for officers to return to police stations when on patrol. 


Capability & Capacity Data

Instant overview of currently authorised firearms officers linked to individual role profiles available 24/7 enables police forces working with collaborations to make informed decisions about future capability and capacity requirements linked to their Strategic Threat & Risk Assessment. Chronicle also provides an interface with the National Police Coordinating Centre (NPoCC) automatically transmitting via the PNN network Capability and Capacity Data to inform the national critical incident response capability.

Professional Competence Reports

Chronicle provides individual time lapse role profile compliance with curriculum or national occupational standards to ensure that staff qualifications remain current and they are ready to be deployed.

Strategic Threat & Risk Assessment

The system generates notifications to inform training departments, supervisors and individuals when a skill is about to expire including weapon qualifications, or when eyesight or medical test is due for renewal, ensuring staff remain current and able to meet operational requirements.
