Information Technology Division

Vision
To enhance the capacity of Policing through Information Technology.

 

Mission
To automate the Police functions through electronic data processing to meet the growing demand of Police requirements.

 

Sri lanka Police inaugurated the computerization process in 1980, at the Personnel Division to enter the Personnel data of existing man power. Short period after the commencement; a team consisting of twenty Police officers was selected as computer operators through a competitive exam. Thus, these twenty officers seconded to the Implementation & Progress control Division in the Police. These twenty officers became the pioneers with the establishment of the computer section of the Fourth Floor in the Police Headquarters in 1989. Subsequently, a permanent Computer Unit was established in 1990 in the Police Headquarters building at 5th floor, with a mini computer branded as "WANG" along with 06 terminals.

 

A separate division was formed as the Information Technology Division came to an operation in a newly constructed 6th floor premises at the Police Headquarters in 1990, which was a brainchild of Retired Deputy Inspector General of Police Mr. Achilles Joseph who died in 2009. It is appreciated his contribution to uplift the standard of Information Technology Division.

 

The Retired Senior Deputy Inspector General of Police Mr. Gamini Nawarathne was appointed as the Director in 1996. At that time, we could see a rapid development in the computer division along with many projects such as Police Hospital System, Police Medical Services System, Police Transport Inventory Control System & Fuel Management System and Police Narcotics System because of his determination & proper administration.


The objectives
The main objective of the Police Information Technology Division is to provide Information Technology facilities to the Police functions as a support service. This setup is headed by a Deputy Inspector General of Police and a Director responsible for the administration and maintenance of the computer projects. The total cadre is around 150 officers working round the clock, also 25 Inspectors under the command of Director/ Information Technology.
