R.S.I.P.F CONTINUE WORK PROGRAM ON CYBER CRIME: PRENDERGAST
Police Commissioner, Frank Prendergast has said the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) is continuing to develop its work program on Cyber Crime.
Mr Prendergast told local reporters over the weekend, as part of his work program, RSIPF wants to continue developing its Cyber Crime capabilities – ones that any modern police force needs to develop.
“As part of my work program we do want to continue developing our Cyber Crime capabilities they are a capability that every modern police force needs and we’ll be working with donors and internal aid to develop those capabilities, so some of that’s technology, some it’s training, some of it’s just awareness, but there’s work that needs to be done.”
He adds, an agreement reached at the MSG Police Commissioner’s conference last week was to conduct an audit of each country’s legislation pertaining to Cyber Crime, citing Papua New Guinea as an interesting case.
“Interestingly, in PNG they’ve developed legislation to help in this issue and one of the pieces of work that was agreed to by the Police Commissioners was to do an audit of each country’s legislation as it pertains to Cyber Crime to position us all to be in a better space to understand what the gaps are and what work we need to do to improve the legislation.”
