Aligned Assets Release Risk Information Module For Local Government


To facilitate the wider, more comprehensive use of essential risk data, Aligned Assets have released their Risk Information Module for UK local authorities

Woking (I-Newswire) May 8, 2014 - Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets are pleased to announce the release of a Risk Information Module as part of their local government gazetteer management system, Symphony iManage.

Being provided as part of their continual drive to provide the highest quality in local government software, the Risk Information Module will allow councils to store data pertaining to risks against each record in their Local Land and Property Gazetteers (LLPG).

The LLPG, which all councils will maintain, acts as a central repository for all address and property data within their administrative boundaries, and is the definitive source of address data used throughout council departments. The inclusion of the Risk Information Module will now allow for risk data to also be shared throughout these departments.

Example information that can be stored in the module includes:

• Risk-based such as potentially violent occupants, asbestos or dangerous dogs
• Person-based to cover information such as an immobile householder or vulnerable persons
• Location-based to detail and aid staff when on site-visits such as with restricted access
• Licence-based to include things such as liquor licences or fireworks storage
• Miscellaneous fields for anything else

In most local authorities this information will be held somewhere, but until now there has not been an opportunity to centralise this essential data and make it available to all those who could benefit from it within the local authority or partner agencies. As such, the Risk Information Module will help in protecting members of staff who perform site-visits and prepare enforcement officers before they carry out their statutory duties.

The data can be easily imported from other systems into the Risk Information Module both as csv files or from GIS layers, and because each LLPG record contains a geographical coordinate, all the risk data will become mapable and thus provide an even greater level of use and analysis.

The module will also be enhanced to enable other agencies to enter proposed location based intelligence such as risks via a web form or web services, thus maximising efficiency in the sharing of information and making it more timely.

Speaking of the Risk Information Module, Managing Director of Aligned Assets, Andy Hird, explained, "This module was built in collaboration with the fire services and police forces of Great Britain for whom risk information is essential to their day-to-day operations.

"It became clear that there was also tremendous benefit for risk data to be more widely used in local authorities and with LLPG data already integrated into so many council departments it is the perfect place for this additional data to be stored, shared and put to very valuable use."
