A JAPANESE company with office in Digos City donated Thursday 18 computer units to the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) for its "e-blotter" project, or the electronic blotter system. Senior Superintendent Ronald M. dela Rosa, DCPO chief, said the computers from the Nakayama Group of Companies will be distributed to the 12 police stations.

The e-blotter, also known as Crime Incident Reporting System (CIRS), does not only facilitate crime documentation but will also present quick and reliable transmission of crime information from the police stations to the regional offices and to the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Camp Crame.

Dela Rosa said all police stations in the city will have the e-blotter system, as this will provide transparency in the police community and is one way of enhancing the crime reporting system in the country for effective law enforcement, which requires comprehensive, adequate and timely information on crimes.

The main goal for the e-blotter is to get a daily update on what is really happening on the ground, particularly in every police station.

Dela Rosa said the e-blotter system is designed as a stand-alone system that will be installed in all police stations as means of reporting and monitoring all crime incidents that transpired within the respective areas, as well as results and records of investigation.

"So, once a person files a complaint against a suspect, this will be forever recorded. It can be accessed by all other police stations in Davao Region and even in Camp Crame in Quezon City," dela Rosa said.

Dela Rosa assured that the e-blotter system will become an effective management tool for all the commanders in decision-making, in formulating anti-crime strategies, and in the deployment of their personnel.

This new system is said to be a cost-free project since the software is being developed locally by programmers of PNP, and only police stations are allowed to install the software.

The DCPO expressed its gratitude to the Nakayama Group of Companies for its unwavering support to the PNP especially Davao Region.

Nakayama is a manufacturer and distributor of ceramic and brick tiles.
