PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police have introduced Criminal Record Verification System (CRVS) to put an effective end to terrorism and other heinous crimes across the province.

A statement issued here on Friday said the move had enhanced the police efficiency to a great extent in connection with the verification which ultimately led to better interrogation and investigation.

It said under the system, computerised data about all criminals had been provided to all police stations available through CRVS.

Record of proclaimed offenders is available on phone through an SIM service to all police stations, checkposts and snap checking points.

The police officials on duty on these points can directly verify the background of any person by clicking the mobile’s button, the statement explained.

The KP police along with digitisation of FIRs have issued 276 special SIMs to all district police through which millions of people have so far been checked and in the process 1,819 proclaimed offenders arrested.

The statement said under the system all data had been converted to digital format and all concerned officials had access to it through one click.
