Security: Police Upgrade e-CMR Portal

The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed the implementation of the upgraded electronic Central Motor Registry (e-CMR) aimed at enhancing the safety and security of all Nigerians.

Police Force spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, who made this known in a statement on Sunday, said that the initiative was a crucial step towards improving law enforcement capabilities and ensuring the well-being of citizens.

TheFact Daily gathers that the CMR is a comprehensive information system designed to streamline vehicle registration processes with a view to strengthening national security.

The full operationalization of the system, he said, would facilitate swift and efficient tracking of stolen vehicles, significantly increasing the chances of recovery. It would equally lead to the maintenance of an accurate and up-to-date database of registered vehicles to aid in the prevention and investigation of vehicle-related crimes such as kidnapping and one-chance activities.

The system is further designed to make it impossible for stolen vehicles to be re-registered due to an additional layer of security, which would in turn discourage criminals from engaging in such activities.

“The process is user-friendly, and all residents are urged to take advantage of the convenience it offers by completing the registration from the comfort of their homes”, Adejobi said.

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, emphasized that the e-CMR, like other applications designed by the Force, such as the Rescue Me App and Police VGS, are vital tools in its commitment to ensuring the welfare of the public.

“The Police acknowledges the concerns about e-CMR enforcement and assures that it would be done in the most professional manner with ample notice for registration by all individuals and corporate bodies. We urge all and sundry to spread awareness about e-CMR for a safer and more secure Nigeria”, the statement read.
