The Borneo Post - - HOME -

KUALA LUMPUR: The use of a lockup sys­tem us­ing the Self- mon­i­tor­ing, Anal­y­sis and Re­port­ing Tech­nol­ogy ( SMART) would be ex­tended to sev­eral other po­lice sta­tions through­out the coun­try ac­cord­ing to the needs and lo­ca­tion of the re­spec­tive sta­tions.

Deputy In­spec­tor- Gen­eral of Po­lice Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said the use of the sys­tem was also sub­ject to suf­fi­cient al­lo­ca­tions from the govern­ment.

“Cur­rently, 57 lock­ups in the Klang Val­ley area have been in­stalled with the SMART sys­tem and it has man­aged to re­duce un­de­sired in­ci­dents.

“The sys­tem which is com­plete with data of when in­mates leave or en­ter the cells also helps in mon­i­tor­ing lock­ups in­volv­ing ag­gres­sive in­mates,” he told re­porters at the Na­tional In­no­va­tion and Cre­ative Econ­omy Expo ( NICE’ 17) ex­hi­bi­tion at Ta­man Te­knologi Malaysia here, yes­ter­day.

Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Dr Ah­mad Zahid Hamidi who was present to launch NICE’17 also vis­ited the SMART Lockup booth at the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Noor Rashid said the use of SMART lockup sys­tem could also re­duce the num­ber of per­son­nel re­quired for lockup con­trol.

“With this sys­tem, we do not need many per­son­nel to man­age the lock­ups, and we can use them for op­er­a­tions out­side in­stead,” he said.

The SMART lockup sys­tem en­ables au­to­matic mon­i­tor­ing, through video an­a­lyt­ics, smart ob­jects In­ter­net, and data high­way anal­y­sis.

The sys­tem, de­vel­oped by the po­lice in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Min­istry of Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion ( MOSTI) through its re­search agency MIMOS, and in­put from the Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion of Malaysia, was launched by Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Tun Razak in April 2016. — Ber­nama
