TUGUEGARAO CITY, CAGAYAN VALLEY – The Philippine National Police (PNP) Region 2 recently acquired desktop computers in an effort to be part of the nationwide electronic blotter (e-blotter) system.

The system was launched late last year by the PNP to speed up the reporting and resolution system of police incidences.

It facilitates crime documentation, improves data storage, and for transmission of crime information from police station to the PNP headquarters at Camp Crame, Quezon City.

The target is to get all PNP offices nationwide to be connected to the system, which will also provide immediate statistical data on incidences.

While the PCs are traditional desktop computers, the software used for the e-blotter is actually developed by the PNP’s Information Technology Management Service (PNP-ITMS).

Cagayan, meanwhile, is also among the latest regions to implement the e-blotter system, after Tarlac and Leyte.

Cagayan Director Rodrigo de Garcia said the e-blotter should improve the PNP in the region in prevention, detection, and solution. He said that access to data is required for responding police to immediately act on incidences.

De Garcia said crime investigators and personnel will undergo training to use the e-blotter system. He also aims to start introducing paperless transactions in their facilities to reduce clutter and cost of purchasing paper, as well as speed documentation.
