The NT government has signed a deal with Canadian specialist policing system provider Niche Technology to replace the state’s core crimes database.
The government committed $45 million in last year’s budget to replace the police real-time online information system (PROMIS) over four years.
It made the decision to replace the 19-year-old system it licences from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) after coming to power in 2016.
The decision aligned with the former Country Liberal Party pledge to replace the system, following a crash that left police recording all their activities on handwritten notes for four days.
NT Policing began work mapping out the replacement after an initial injection of $1 million in 2015 in preparation for the AFP ending support beyond 2017.
