Lahore, February 22, 2018 (PPI-OT): The Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) has developed a mobile application for Punjab Police through which access to the datasets is provided to authorize police officers in real time. An android application, “Toolkit”, is developed and officers have been trained for the use of the application. Police officers using this application can now access all police-related data through this system.
At the backend of the application, a log of each activity in the system is being maintained and requests of every user can be monitored. The monitoring in-charge can see how many vehicles were checked by a particular officer. Daily performance can be monitored and high achievers can also be tracked using the dashboard, incentivizing good work.
This project has benefited investigation officers immensely. They can access required information within seconds rather than commuting to a certain office to get the information. The application has aided arrests of suspicious persons and recovery of stolen vehicles. Another feature of the application is that it is connected to an integrated database, connecting all 36 districts of the Punjab Province. The Punjab Police is a large workforce and most of the field officers require access to various datasets for cases under investigation.
