Police to benefit from

Kathmandu, November 25:

Nepal Police has from yesterday introduced an advanced computerised system ‘Fibre optics

network’ to share information among all its departments, divisions and sections in the valley.

The new system is aimed at making police services more efficient, Inspector General of the Police Shyam Bhakta Thapa said while inaugurating the system yesterday amid a function at the Police Headquarters.

During the first phase of the programme, three District Police Offices, the Valley Police Office,

all the departments inside the Police Headquarters and the National Police Academy computer division will each have a computer information sharing facility that will inform about ongoing

police activities. The computerised information sharing facilities would help the police perform

its activities more efficiently, police personnel speaking at the programme said. The officers said that the new system would help make the valley a safer place.

“Computers in police offices will contain all the information on the localities under their juridictions, including the number of houses, the number of people living in each house, information on roads and alleyways, number of listed criminals in the area and the possible exit routes for criminals,” Ramesh Chand, spokesperson for Nepal Police, said. The system will be expanded into zonal and ward police offices in the next phase of the programme.
