If you are consuming services over the PSN for Policing (PSNfP) – via the PSN (Public Services Network) you may be aware that this is now changing.
The PSN is due to be retired in 2023 with services being moved away from this over time. If you use services such as this, you may need to look at how you are to consume them shortly.
The Law Enforcement Community Network (LECN) is a new network overlay entering service by the end of 2021, designed and built by the Home Office to replace PSNfP. If you are currently using PSNfP it would be worth considering your options to move onto this new service.
LECN still has a compliance element, however unlike the previous PSN Service, you will require a specific service access need. This could be for your enforcement requirements or if you provide services to Police Forces in the UK. Assurance requirements are driven by UK policing assurance standards and will need to be applied via NPIRMT (National Policing Information Risk Management Team).
