    How policebcmr will crush terrorists in Nigeria





                   


    The Nigeria police force has gone digital. It used to be analogue in the past, where officers across police formations work like their colonial police masters. It is a welcome development and a plus for the police and the country.
    Mohammed Abubakar, the present inspector-general of police told the world last week Friday that with the new magic machine called policebcmr, terrorists, kidnappers, paid killers, armed robbers and other criminally minded persons are in trouble.
    Abubakar dropped this hint through Frank Mba, force police public relations officer, who summoned crime reporters from print, electronic and online media to police officers mess in Ikeja GRA in Lagos, south-west Nigeria.
    What is policeBCMR all about?
    PoliceBCMR is a technological means of attaching automobile owner’s special and unique biological characteristics (biometrics) and personal data to their vehicles for authentication, protection, crime prevention and detection purposes which operates on a smart card and handheld card reader.
    This is also a specially developed enterprise solution for centralization and validation of vehicle documents in order to create and authenticate the database for police operational use in crime management nationwide.
    Particularly for countries in West Africa where band width is low for efficient telecommunication and internet connectivity coupled with inconsistent GPRS that has been an hindrance to efficient automobile tracking technologies. The Handheld device does not rely or need internet connectivity and electricity to operate anywhere in the country.
    Why policebcmr?
    Wireless communications enables round clock, discreet automated compliance screening for vehicle registration requirements.

Easily enable tracking down of automobile that is involve in crime.
    How does policebcmr do that?

    These series of questions and answers are downloaded from www.policebcmr.org, the official website of biometric machine.
    But, from our interviews with some commercial bus drivers, private motor owners, keke marwa operators and other persons in Lagos, police authorities have to carry out more public awareness on the new digital anti-crime machine.
    But, Mba assured that since the police has a wider mandate as far as the serious business of checkmating criminal activities as well enforcement of law and order is concerned, all other security agencies are expected to work in synergy with the police.
