The iPlod App has been designed as a pocket reference tool for UK police officers. The app contains a database of UK legislation as well as aide memoires and other useful information. The designer of the App is a serving UK police officer.
●● LEGISLATION ●●
The App contains almost 300 articles, split into the following categories:
• Criminal Damage
• Public Order
• Weapons / Blades
• Anti-Social Behaviour
• Sexual Offences
• Traffic Law
• Police / Courts
• Sporting Offences
• Use of Force
• Human Rights
• Miscellaneous Offences
●● POINTS TO PROVE ●●
Legislation articles include the points to prove for the offence. Handy for structuring suspect interviews.
●● POLICE ACTIONS ●●
Legislation articles include a list of 'police actions' specific to that offence.
●● CHARGING CODES ●●
CCCJS Charging Codes are included for most offences and will be rolled out for all offences in future updates.
●● AID MEMOIRES ●●
Handy guides that include GOWISELY, ADVOKATE, PEACE interview model, National Decision Model (NDM), Arrest Conditions, FPN codes, PND codes and more.
●● SEARCH ●●
You can search from within the App by subject and key words that will then display all the relevant articles for your search query.
●● EMAIL and PRINT ●●
There is also the facility to email each article so that you can then print it off – very useful for points to prove in interviews!
The App contains offences from Acts of Law that apply in England and Wales (Although many of these acts also apply in Scotland and Northern Ireland).

Easy to use and never lets you down!
This is a brilliant app. It's very simple and fast to use. The legislation is broken down for fast easy understanding and doesn't really use my battery power.
I use this app all the time at work and have used it out of work to help and advise people.
I was very impressed when I discovered some legislation I needed wasn't on the app, I immediately reported it and it had been uploaded within a few weeks!
Highly recommended! Well worth it's money.
This app is very good and also user friendly. Not only useful for police officers but also police station representatives and others working in criminal justice system. Handy if you want to check something whilst out and about
This app is excellent. Not only for serving officers, new & old, but for any one wanting to check point of law. It is well laid out & an easy read. Certainly saves having all the books as well being really good value for money.
