Police launch new information management system

The Maldives Police Services has launched a new information management system today.

Speaking at a ceremony held to inaugurate the Police Information Management System (PIMS), Commissioner of Police Hussein Waheed said the new system will facilitate investigations and introduces new services.

The system facilitates the handling and storing of information regarding investigations and evidence, and dramatically reduces paper costs at the office, he said.

The Police Management Board also held discussions on posting police officers on all inhabited islands on Tuesday.

According to a police statement, the board aims to increase or limit officers depending on the population and number of crimes. The size and amount of services available at police stations will also vary depending on these factors.
