PNP modernizes its system

According to PNP chief Gen. Rodolfo Azurin, Jr., the platform would cover arrested law offenders nationwide.

The booking procedures include fingerprint scanning and taking photos of the criminals. The data would then be stored in the PNP data system through the Automated Fingerprints Identification System (AFIS).

Azurin said that with the new system, collection, and cross-matching of fingerprints would "be faster and more efficient."

The PNP official also believes this will allow the organization to boost its crime solution efficiency.

For many years, the PNP had been manually collecting information of arrested persons, but because of this initiative to deliver efficient and timely investigation service, the Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM) created this system that will fully digitalize the booking process of arrested persons, Azurin said.

Aside from this, the PNP also rolled out the National Police Clearance System, the e-subpoena, the e-warrant, and the e-rogue.
