PentiP provides a consistent approach for issuing and managing Fixed Penalty notices

Our Vehicle Procedures and Fixed Penalty Office (VP/FPO) solution is used by 45 forces and the courts to process Fixed Penalties Notices (FPN) and Conditional Offer Fixed Penalty Notices (COFPN) issued to drivers and vehicles, and in some cases cyclists, who offend. The NPS Enforcement System is also used by 42 forces and courts to process Penalty Notices for Disorder (PND) or Antisocial Behaviour Notices (ASBN) in Scotland.

In 2009, we won the national contract with the Home Office to roll out PentiP to all forces in England and Wales, establishing a consistent approach to the issuing and management of notices.

It enables:

  • Police officers and courts to select the most suitable disposal option based upon accurate and complete data

  • Users to interrogate and update a central database and a number of databases held by partner organisations to check: the details of a driver/vehicle against PNC; whether a driver has been disqualified; whether a driver is eligible for a Speed Awareness or Driver Improvement Scheme Course (National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme); whether a person has a previous cannabis warning.

  • Online payment of fines

  • Electronic endorsement of driving licences

  • The courts to follow up unpaid fines more efficiently with the aid of accurate intelligence
