Achievements

 

Beneficial Coordination

DCI has contributed much to crime operations success conducted by either RBPF’s internal units or other law enforcement agencies. 2012 recorded among others cases of prostitution, gambling, theft and smuggling successfully foiled with the help of the intelligence information from DCI.


International Cooperation

As part of fostering strong bond with foreign counterparts, a bilateral meeting between RBPF and Singapore Police Force (SPF) took place in April last year in Singapore which among others witnessed several intelligence and operational courses being offered by the SPF. The courses range from basic to intermediate level suitable for research and operations. Few DCI officers had the privilege of attending the relevant courses in previous years which had benefitted DCI and the Force as a whole in terms of knowledge and skill enrichment.


Human Resource Development

Two officers had been sent for Field Intelligence training at the Police Intelligence Training School, Police Intelligence Department, SPF. 


Advanced Records Management System (ARMS)​

Advanced Records Management System (ARMS) was first launched in DCI on 1 March 2012 to replace the Police Information System (PIS). DCI is in the 1st implementation phase besides the Central Police Station since DCI collates all crime reports nationwide for statistical use therefore it is quite a test for DCI. With steady training for the police personnel manning the system including DCI, the job now is to monitor daily the data entered by Central Police Station aside from, to continue entering data for other police stations which have not embraced ARMS. At this point, the 1st implementation stage has yet to be completed.
