|Mobile Data Association invites digital experts to join forces with online abuse reporting project|
Single Point Reporting project involving the Police and Home Office to become single hub for reporting abuse over the internet
Single Point Reporting is targeting a quicker, consistent and more efficient way of reporting abuse, leading to prosecution where necessary.
“Core information required by emergency and prosecution services has already been determined, and the MDA has defined an initial Application Programme Interface (API) for discussion and further development for the relevant systems.” added Hawkes. “We intend to ultimately make the API available under free licence for all developers to be able to integrate into their packages.”
To complete the design and to engage with all interested parties, the MDA is now inviting contributions from the wider digital community to ensure that:
Once captured, the data will be forwarded to a triage facility, where each report will be reviewed for forwarding to the appropriate authority and location. Data management and the extraction of statistical information - all within a high security environment - is another key factor of the scheme.
