THE Police have embarked on a project to create a centralised crime data bank to bolster the performance of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
The CID director, Elizabeth Kutesa, recently said the Justice, Law and Order Sector would fund the project.
She was opening a three-week senior officers induction course for cadet officers at Kibuli Police Training School (PTS).
It is expected that the data bank will improve the speed of information flow and the tracking of habitual criminals whose names would have been fed into the system.
“We have already secured funding for the project and we are now waiting for the computers. But in the meantime we are organising our archives of information so that by the time the computers come in we will only have to enter the information,” Kutesa said.
Flanked by the commandant PTS, Felix Ndyomugyenyi, Kutesa said the project would begin in the city and spread out gradually to other units.
“It will make our work a lot easier. If we arrest a suspected criminal, at the mere touch of a tab we will have all the information linked to him or her,” a beaming Kutesa said. She could not readily say how much the project would cost. Ends
