GENTING HIGHLANDS: Come November, motorists lodging traffic-related reports at police stations can save time as they no longer have to wait for the traffic investigating officers to take down their complaints.
“By that time, all police stations will be linked to the online Police Reporting System (PRS).
“Under the new system, a person doesn't have to go to a traffic police centre to lodge a report.
“They can go to any police station,” said Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Khalid Abu Bakar.
He added that the general policemen could conduct the initial investigation by taking down the accident particulars and snapping photographs of the damaged vehicle before submitting it online.
The report would then be sent to a traffic investigating officer in the area or location of the accident for a detailed case follow-up.
Khalid said motorists would even be able to apply for photographs and sketches of the accident site online and choose the police station from which they wished to collect the documents.
He explained that currently all police stations could accept police reports on traffic matters and accidents, however this was done manually and the reports were then sent to the respective traffic police centres before investigations could start.
Khalid said this after witnessing the closing ceremony of the three-day Traffic Police Investigation Application Workshop here yesterday.
Thirty-two state and senior traffic police chiefs attended the brainstorming event to improve the traffic police investigation and delivery system.
