Police believe that a new hi-tech intelligence system, which will be introduced this year, will help:
‘• gather information on crimes and offenders more quickly as complex intelligence that once took hours to create will now take just minutes.
• link people, events, vehicles, properties and activities to produce highly sophisticated intelligence
• integrate open-source social media with police information.’
One of the crimes that will be targeted with this system is family violence.
In addition 3135 new police will be recruited over the next five years. (Source: Premier’s Media Centre, 6/2/17)
