As a precautionary measure to tackle vehicle theft, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has launched a platform for Nigerians to report cases of stolen vehicles.
Revealing this in a statement on Wednesday, the force’s Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the digital platform – the Central Motor Vehicle Record (CMR) – completed and commissioned by the IGP, is located at the force’s headquarters in Abuja.
He said the launch of the platform followed IGP’s “quest to ensure a digital policing environment in the country in order to take robust and more proactive measures in crime prevention, investigation and prosecution.”
“The newly digital Central Vehicle Record Command Center will allow members of the public to report vehicles stolen since January 1, 2018 that have not yet been recovered to enter vehicle details on the online platform to serve as a reliable data point for potential vehicle recovery,” he said.
“The platform will also process vehicle information to support police operations and efforts to enhance national security.”
With two CMR command centers in Abuja and Lagos, Adejobi said 37 information centers are in place across the country and in the Federal Capital Territory, with 200 electronic operational patrol vehicles with automatic number plate recognition on each vehicle as part of the first. Package.
He also asked Nigerians and other residents of the country to make use of the platform at https://reportcmr.npf.gov.ng To upload their vehicle information on the website as of December 7, 2022, as a security step to prevent it from being stolen and re-registered.
