The city police of Windhoek have launched their own web site in partnership with Telecom Namibia.

The sponsored website www.citypolice.org.na, initiated and designed by Telecom Namibia, was officially launched during a media conference at Telecom Namibia’ s Head Office in Windhoek last week.

The Managing Director of Telecom Namibia, Frans Ndoroma, said the latest sponsorship shows Telecom Namibia’ s commitment in helping the City’ s law enforcement agency to adopt new technologies to solve crimes, engage community members and improve service delivery.

“ The handover and launch of the web site is our humble contribution in helping the City Police to use the web, social media and related tools to prevent and solve crimes, strengthen police-community relations and enhance services among others,” said Ndoroma

He added that with better communication between law enforcement and citizens, the more confident citizens will be when they contact their local law enforcement agency through such a website.

The online tool is further designed to deliver important, timely and relevant information to city residents using the latest technology. Such information ranges from public safety alerts to important neighbourhood advisories the public want to know about and other valuable community policing information and tips.

Well-known social media tools like facebook, twitter and You Tube were also incorporated on the new City Police website in order to enhance the City Police new way of high tech communication and relationship building with its stakeholders online.     

Chief Executive Officer of the City of Windhoek Niilo Taapopi applauded Telecom Namibian for its noble gesture saying the website will enhance information dissemination activities of the City Police, while reaching the clientele the City would otherwise not reach through conventional tools.

“ The web site will also introduce the City Police to the rest of the world, thereby positioning Windhoek as safe city and enhance the already soaring tourist figures into our capital. In this regard Telecom Namibia’ s sponsorship to the City Police came at the right time,” said Taapopi.
