Daily registered crimes, criminals’ records, departmental history of police officials, employees to be included in the new system
ISLAMABAD – Islamabad Police will now use latest police communication system and devices which will enable the police to perform their duties efficiently.
The electronic system will not only help reduce crime rate but will also create transparency and build empathy and trust between police and community.
The system will have complete data of daily registered crime cases, record of criminals from the day of their arrest and release, and departmental history of all police officials and employees.
The system – the Islamabad Capital Territory Police Communication System (ICTPOLCOM) – has been completed in only 47 days. Inspector General of Police Tariq Masood Yasin assigned the task to develop this integrated system soon after assuming the charge of the IGP office.
The IGP formally reviewed this system on Tuesday in a meeting which was also attended among others by AIG (General) Nisar Ahmed Khan Tanoli, SP Aamir Khan Niazi, Director IT Saleem Raza Sheikh and Staff Officer to IGP for IT Syed Imtiaz Ahmed Shah.
The complete data of police stations with effect from January 1, 2016 has been installed in the system while further record is being updated.
The modern system in policing history of Pakistan would include complete data of daily registered crime cases, record of criminals from the day of their arrest and release and departmental history of all police officials and employees, IGP Islamabad said.
On daily basis, the data of each police station is being incorporated while IGP Islamabad, DIG, SSP (Operations), Zonal SPs, SDPOs, SHOs and police operators can access this data round the clock even on their smart phones, laptops and personal computers.
The IGP Islamabad directed the relevant authorities to train the officers not using this system and acquaint them with this modern technique. He said the system would be very helpful for effective policing and any reported deficiency in this system would be tackled.
This system has complete security features and anyone trying to access it wrongly would be traced through generation of a computerized message.The IGP also reviewed the users of this system since its inception on June 2016 and it was revealed that no Station House Officers except Shalimar, Shams Colony, Industrial Area, Khanna and Nilore police stations have used it. The Zonal SPs used it frequently; SDPOs Margalla and Sihala Circles used this system for only two hours each; SDPOs Golra and Shamas Colony used it for an hour each while the SDPO Bhara Kahu used it for less than one hour.
