Streamlining access to the Police National Computer

The Lynx Central Services Gateway (CSG) is a next-generation PNC gateway, which provides law enforcement agencies with browser- and application-based access to this critical resource.

We developed the Lynx CSG in partnership with a number of police forces to ensure it can support multiple applications within a simple, secure, single infrastructure.

Why choose PNC Access

The browser-based PNC access that all PNC users will find familiar and intuitive to use.

Developed Lynx CSG with Dyfed Powys Police and West Midlands Police to ensure it meets UK Law Enforcement Agency needs

Lynx CSG provides access to both PNC and Criminal History System XML services, as well as to the Phoenix Force Interface and pass-through services

Lynx CSG delivers secure PNC access over the SRG and XML interfaces. Building on the functionality of earlier generations, the latest version allows easy access to the PNC terminal interface for users and third-party applications.

There are three core applications:

  • Lynx Service
  • Lynx Audit
  • Lynx Management

As well as enabling web-based PNC access, the applications enable administrators to search and report on various PNC details.

Lynx CSG also supports automated processes, helping you make effective use of PNC assets without increasing your workload
