Bangalore: Wipro Infotech,a leading provider of IT and business transformation services, today announced that it has developed an integrated police Information system.
This end-to-end online application software developed by Wipro covers all important activities related to day-to-day functioning of police departments, including the back-end administrative processes of General Administration, finance and stores.
The processes have been automated to ease the tasks of administration and record keeping, thereby bringing in operational efficiency throughout the police department. Currently the application is in a pilot stage.
Speaking about the Police Information System, Ranbir Singh, General Manager, Government and Defence,Wipro Infotech, the India and Middle East business arm of Wipro Ltd, said “To combat high crime rates more effectively, Wipro sees a huge role for Information Technology”.
“This is a path breaking application and will bring in a lot of efficiency and agility in functioning between various units of the police department through real time information sharing, thereby resulting in better service to the citizens”, he said in a statement today.
The application has been developed on a flexible software oriented architecture that allows it to be used in a centralised deployment mode, as well as a de-centralised deployment mode.
This architecture enables each police station function independently and at the same time allows for data to flow to the divisional and Headquater levels at regular intervals, thereby achieving the benefits of a centralised system, it said.
The application also has a citizen interface through which complaints can be raised and the status of an already lodged FIR can be tracked.The user interface can display content both in English and the local language.
The application has several operational modules which will maintain records within police stations and other police bodies pertaining to various activities of the police in areas like crime, law and order, wireless, traffic, intelligence and counter intelligence.
Each module has the search function to retrieve relevant data. A standard based information exchange gateway will make available the required crime and criminal information for access by other states.
The information exchange will also retrieve the required information from other states, enabling a seamless sharing of crime and criminal information across the country, the release said.
