The management of Westzone Services Limited, a conglomerate that produces security data, has frowned on the non-adoption of a crime-fighting module called Police Crime Data Management System, PDMS, designed by the firm to fight crime.
The company expressed concerns over the failure at nipping some crimes in the bud in Nigeria, adding that the module would be effective if accepted.
Its Corporate Operations Manager, Mr. Raymond Parker, said the Nigeria Police would gain more if it adopts the module.
It added that the gadgets recommended were reliable, regretting that the Police did not welcome the product.
His words: ‘’I am suspecting that somebody out there is trying to prevent the authority from keying into this smart concept. It will be a crime buster that will make Nigeria too hot for criminal activities. It will ensure that policing becomes more effective and result-oriented.
“The initiative if completed will enable the Police and other security agencies track crime with ease from anywhere in the country. Once criminals realise that they have no hiding place, they will have no choice but to quit the business for good.
“A breakdown analysis of the package titled: Nigeria Police Crime Management System and other Security Agencies, shows that what the Nigeria Police needed to do was to have a workable synergy to ensure that crimes are nipped in the bud before they are allowed to escalate. Security is paramount and fundamental to the development of Nigeria because without peace no country can develop.
“To effectively solve the challenges of criminal activities in the country, there is an urgent need for the Police to adopt this module.
“It is safe for the Police to embrace this module because it is genuine and we are prepared to tame the monster called crime in Nigeria.
The Police can adopt a pilot program by keying into it with one zone out of the six geopolitical zones. The success of the project at that level will eventually make it a national project.
“What Westzone has presented would convince the leadership of the Police to make it mandatory for every division to adopt. Once the crime rate is reduced, direct foreign investment will increase, industries will thrive, trade and commerce will boom and our economy will be more vibrant. The office of the Inspector General of Police received the proposal since October 29, 2015, in Abuja, yet, nothing concrete has been heard about this lofty project which promises so much.’’
