Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i unveiled the first ever Kenya Police Digital Occurrence Book (OB).
The event was graced by the Inspector-General of Police Hilary Mutyambai who said the flagship project will ensure better management of reported cases right from police stations.
“The digital OB has been tried and tested at Kasarani, all officers in NRB trained and the system is now ready for full implementation in Nairobi county”
The new initiative will see the digitization of reported cases in Nairobi. This will help officers to manage and address some of the reported issues in real-time.
“Kenyans now do not need to reach the police station for booking but can be done in the field and reported at the station for quick action,” said Mutyambai.
The move has also seen the deployment of 210 desktop computers, and 10,181 iPads being issued to police officers in Nairobi.
Speaking at the same function, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i referred to the old occurrence book as “the file” noting that citizens will no longer suffer because of that since there will be no missing files.
Echoing his sentiments, the Information, Communication Technology Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru promised that data security has been safeguarded, to curb loss of data.
