The company last May received a request from the Provincial Station Commander (PSC) if they could assist by equipping the General Duty Counter officers in receiving and recording cases into a computer rather than manually using the Occurrence Book (OB).
The request from the PSC last year stemmed from concerns by the courts who have decreed that they are not going to accept handwritten Occurrence Book (OB) entries and secondly, most of the handwritten entries fade overtime or pages go missing making it difficult for prosecution of cases.
At the presentation was PPC WNB and his PSC who thanked the NBPOL management for their assistance. The two computers for the front desk will ensure proper records are maintained daily by officers serving at the counter.
In presenting the equipment, NBPOL WNB General Manager Harry Brock, TCS and Community Projects Coordinator Steven Raphael and other senior management urged the officers at the front duty counter to take care of the equipment and use if for appropriate purposes.
