The Sri Lanka Police Department is planning to link all police stations through an online network to provide a better and efficient service to the people.

The move facilitates the decision of the Police Department to complete investigations regarding minor complaints within 48 hours, police sources say.

In addition, payment of fines through SMS and the use of modern technology to obtain fingerprinting have also been planned.

The 145-year-old police department recently launched a new service to track the status of the Police Clearance Certificates (PCCs) through SMS.

Streamlining police work with the use of modern technology is conducted in collaboration with the Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) of Sri Lanka.
