Oman Daily Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

MUS­CAT: The Royal Oman Po­lice’s (ROP) on­line ser­vices are the ones most widely used by the peo­ple, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey con­ducted by the In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy Au­thor­ity (ITA).

The e-Govern­ment project has been im­ple­mented in the Sul­tanate as per the di­rec­tives of His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos to en­sure dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion. ROP’s e-ser­vices have won 31 awards in var­i­ous lo­cal, Gulf and Arab com­pe­ti­tions.

Col Eng Nasser bin Mus­lim al Ruza­iqi, Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral of In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, said, “The depart­ment works to sup­port ROP ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing devel­op­ment of soft­ware for ser­vices of­fered by the po­lice. The e-ser­vices will en­sure qual­ity per­for­mance and ex­pen­di­ture ra­tio­nal­i­sa­tion by di­ver­si­fy­ing the use of var­i­ous tech­ni­cal means.”

The ROP has pro­cessed 1,366,016 ap­pli­ca­tion forms on­line un­til the end of Au­gust. It has con­ducted 877,069 trans­ac­tions on civil sta­tus and 370,230 on traf­fic-re­lated mat­ters.

Bayan is a one-stop elec­tronic or sin­gle win­dow that ex­pe­dites clear­ance and flow of goods. To ease the se­cu­rity pro­ce­dures, the ROP re­cently launched a project to equip the po­lice ve­hi­cles with e-de­vices.

This ser­vice will en­able the po­lice au­to­mat­i­cally de­tect speed vi­o­la­tions via ve­hi­cle’s speed con­trol de­vices.

Al Ruza­iqi said the ROP was cur­rently work­ing on im­ple­ment­ing sev­eral elec­tronic projects, most of them linked to govern­ment in­sti­tu­tions. Com­pa­nies and in­sti­tu­tions reg­is­tered in the sys­tem will en­joy ser­vices elec­tron­i­cally. The com­pe­tent au­thor­ity de­vel­ops traf­fic sys­tems and links it to all rel­e­vant agen­cies within the po­lice and out­side. to the
