Res ipsa Loquitor

Dear South Wales Police,

I am interested to know

- how many computers (desktops, laptops, tablets) are in the Force estate for use by officers and staff?
- which is the prevalent computer operating system across the constabulary (for example Microsoft Windows XP, WIndows7, Windows 10, iOS (Apple), Chrome or other);
- which version of that system is the default;
- regardless which system is the current default, whether there is an intention to move to Windows 10 and if so when and at what estimated cost.

If the force has commenced this move to Windows 10, what approximate proportion of devices are using Windows 10.

I am not seeking any personal information of any kind.

Yours faithfully,
