KUALA LUMPUR: Police reports may soon be able to be lodged online without people having to be physically present at police stations, says Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed (pic).

The Deputy Home Minister said this would be part of an effort to modernise the police force, in line with technological advances.

"The police are carrying out a pilot project to explore the possibility of lodging reports online.

"This will mean that a person can lodge a report from a handphone or from a computer at home without going to the police station," he said when answering a question by Khoo Soo Seang (BN-Tebrau) in Parliament Thursday.

He said the online police report system is currently under evaluation at the Brickfields and Taman Tun Dr Ismail police stations.

However, Nur Jazlan said there were still technical issues that needed to be ironed out before the project can fully take off, particularly how the individual making the report signs off on it.

"Discussions are being held with the Attorney-General on a mechanism which will allow digital signatures to be used as a means to attest to the online report," he added.
