Easier to report crimes with new system
The Police say they have made it easier for citizens to report crime with the opening of 14 centers where data on each crime can be entered into a system that is interconnected with the Prosecution service, the Police Criminal Investigations Agency (Dicrim) and regional police commanders nationwide. The new system director Teofilo Gomez says it will enable better data collection and storage of statistics on robberies, muggings and other crimes. The data will help the authorities take decisions and improve their response to violence and crime in the country, he added. Most importantly, the new computerized system will simplify citizen crime reporting and will enable citizens to keep track of progress made by police handling their case.
The new automated crime reporting service headquarters is at the Sambil Mall in Santo Domingo. Police chief General Nelson Peguero Paredes said the system would enable the authorities to have reliable and accurate information on all crimes occurring nationwide. He said the system is ready to be deployed nationwide but the first 14 centers will be based in Greater Santo Domingo, Santiago and Barahona. The centers are in Sambil Mall, Atarazanas, Naco, Palacio de la Policia, Villa Francisca, Invivienda, Santo Domingo Este, Z8, Los Rieles in Los Alcarrizos, C-2, Maria Auxiliadora, Direccion Central, Kilometer 9 of the Duarte Highway, Plan Piloto and Los Guaricanos in Santo Domingo, Ensanche Libertad in Santiago and Mari Lopez in Barahona.
