The Victorian Government is keeping the police force at the cutting edge of crime fighting, with new technology to give officers better access to information on family violence, public disorder and terrorist threats. It has funded the establishment of a new Intelligence Management and Analytics solution, which will include a state of the art system to ensure police has efficient access to data and intelligence to give police members information they need, when they need it.
The new intelligence system is expected to free up more police and support officers to provide the best, most effective response to law and order issues including counter terrorism. The government hopes that by giving officers quicker access to higher quality information, police will be able to spend more time on operational duties rather than administrative tasks. The new funding package also include provision for 400 new police to be recruited with a focus to help prevent crime and give frontline police quicker access to the information they need to respond to family violence incidents and gang crime.
