E-Blotter launched at Cordillera police officeby Pelita Tacio
LA TRINIDAD, Benguet, Jan. 16 -- The Police Regional Office-Cordillera(PROCOR) launched last January 13 the e-Blotter, a break through in crime investigation and detective management.
The e-Blotter is designed as a stand-alone system which will be installed in all police stations as a means of reporting and monitoring of all crime incidents that transpired within an area as well as the results and records of investigations conducted by the police stations.
The launching was graced by PCSupt Ricardo Marquez, Executive Officer of the Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM), Camp Crame, Quezon City and Baguio Congressman Bernardo Vergara.
Marquez, in his speech said that the DIDM with the Information Technology Management Service (PNP-ITMS) developed a more efficient electronic blotter system for recording crime incidents across the country with the National Capital Region as the pilot study.
The e-BLOTTER does not only facilitate crime documentation and modernize data storage but also presents quick, fast and reliable transmission of crime information from police stations to the PNP Headquarters at Camp Crame, Quezon City. It is an effective management tool for decision makers and security strategies to have an easy and intelligent way of mapping out peace and order and anti-criminality strategy.
The main goal of the project is to have a daily update on what is really happening on the ground, particularly in every police station which is vital in mapping out strategies for quick response and crime prevention, he explained.
Among the high lights of the launching was the turn-over of e-Blotter hardware by Vergara to PROCOR Regional Director, PCSupt Benjamin Magalong. The e- Blotter hardware from Vergara are for the six Police Provincial Offices of PROCOR, City Police Head Quarters, Women and Children Protection Center and 10 Stations of Baguio City Police Office(BCPO).
In his speech, Vergara assured PROCOR of his support in all the projects that PROCOR would venture in to.
Prior to this launching, 80 officers representing the six 6 PPOs and CPO underwent a three-day seminar workshop on e-Blotter. DIDM-ITMS Mobile Team gave hands on training to the participants on how to use the system.
Last January 14, Magalong turned-over to BCPO City Director, PSSupt David Lacdan 12 e-Blotter hardware sets to operationalize e-Blotter system in the Baguio City.(PIA CAR/PRO-COR)
