The company further stated that it plans to roll out to all other states over the next 12 months.

The Nigeria police force which is generally rated as a world class police force when performing outside the country and under the United Nations was recently rated as one of the worst police Force in Africa, something most observers say is due to lack of resources.

With the introduction of the Hawk Eye Crime Reporter the Nigeria Police Force can be more effective to take on the challenges of fighting crime in the country. While Hawk Eye Crime Reporter does not provide it with all necessary resources it is a step in the right direction.

Hawk Eye Global Crime Report provides an App that would allow citizens to anonymously report crimes from their mobile phone using voice, video and images. The System also offers an enterprise system with Patrol vehicle monitoring, Dispatching, Reports, Business Intelligence and Analytics. Patrol Vehicles are equipped with handheld Mobile Device Terminal and iPolice application which allow officers to locate crime scene quickly, conduct facial recognition search on suspects, make arrests, gather statements from suspects, witnesses and complainants as well as gather digital evidence from the field.

 “We have deployed solar powered Command and Control Centers at Force HQ, Lagos and FCT Command, trained more than 600 officers, 113 DPO’s and supplied mobile device terminals for patrol vehicles in both commands, our goal is to deploy to all the other states over the next 12 months” said Umar Mustapha, MD/COO Web Assets Nig.

The system, which was developed by US based technology company, BBGN&K LLC was donated to the police by web Assets Nigeria Limited and is maintained under a public private partnership agreement by the company.

“We have to do what we can to help, we have social responsibility as businesses, to our communities to help fight this engulfing criminality that is all around us” said Kayode Aladesuyi, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Web Asset Nigeria Limited
