Chairman, Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Senator Abu Ibrahim, Tuesday said that the Crime and Criminal Tracking System Bill, which seeks to provide for the design, development, installation and management of a robust crime and criminal tracking system for the Nigeria Police would enhance national security.
Senator Ibrahim said that criminal tracking system would work through automation of criminal records with biometric identification information for background security checks, crime investigation and prosecution and counter – terrorism and for related matters.
The Katsina South lawmaker spoke at a public hearing on Crime and Criminal Tracking System Bill and the Traffic Warden Bill which seeks to Repeal section 59-69 of the Police Act Cap 359 Laws of the federation of Nigeria 1990 and to re-enact the Traffic Warden Service which shall be responsible for the appointment, promotion and discipline of traffic Wardens, issuance of certificate of appointment and discharge and for other related matters.
These bills, he said, couldn’t have come at any other better time other than now considering the increasing threats to security in the country.
He said, ‘The Senate especially this Committee is committed toward the provision of adequate legal framework for effective policing and crime control in our society.
“The bills when passed will certainly help in enhancing in-depth investigation of crime and control in the country.”
He noted that the public hearing will afford all the invited stakeholders and members of the public a very good opportunity to make their contributions on bills to enable the Senate pass the bills into Law.
