Horn, Mr W to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services
What steps has he taken to address the lack of his Department of Correctional Services progress with the development of an Integrated Inmate Management System?
The Department has collaborated with the Integrated Justice System (IJS) programme office since October 2018, to increase its capacity and complete the development of the outstanding modules of Incarcerations and Corrections and Community Corrections.
The Department has successfully rolled out the Remand Detention module with Biometrics (fingerprints, facial and Iris) to seven (7) sites, and will continue with the remaining sites as per annual performance plan (APP) and this will cover 60% of the Remand Detention Offenders information on IIMS with proper identification and verification.
The above interventions are aimed at accelerating finalization of IIMS development and roll out.
