Res ipsa Loquitor

Dear Devon and Cornwall Constabulary,

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,

Res ipsa Loquitor (Brian Speedwell)

FOI, Devon and Cornwall Constabulary

Thank you for your email submitted to the Freedom of Information (FOI)

auto-response as a formal acknowledgement. 

Should we need to clarify any aspect of your request we will contact you
regarding this but please be aware that the 20 working day deadline will
not begin until the clarification has been received.

If your email relates to an ongoing request we will respond to your email

Please note that we are experiencing high volumes of requests and staff
shortages which, in some cases, is impacting on our ability to comply with
the 20 working day statutory deadline. Please be assured that we are
working on all current and outstanding requests and will get a response to
you as soon as possible. Please bear in mind that when we receive
enquiries regarding late requests, responding to these enquiries can cause
