Nigeria Police upgrade technology for crime reporting

The Nigeria Police have upgraded their crime reporting app, named ‘NPF Rescue Me’.

The Inspector-General of Police Usman Alkali Baba, said the app would prove useful in reporting police misconduct and ensure faster response.

“The IGP emphasises that the NPF Rescue Me App, which is a great improvement, redefines security and personalises policing, enabling android and iOS users to download the app from the various app stores, registering with their details and having access to a variety of features including emergency services, crime reporting, navigation, ambulances services, amongst others,” said a statement issued by Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Force spokesperson.

“The application also has an emergency button which when depressed alerts operatives at the Nigeria Police National Command and Control Centre who would immediately send out the required assistance to victims, irrespective of their locations within the country.

“The Inspector-General of Police while encouraging members of the public to download the application into their carry-along gadgets, and input some required information for improved services and their personal safety, reiterates that his administration is poised to exploring the use of cutting-edge technology to take combating crime and responding to emergency situations to an entirely new level,” the statement added.
