The Fiji Police Force and the Land Transport Authority have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on information sharing and relationship building.

A key feature of the agreement would allow Police to access the LTA’s vast accident data base and usage of the LTA Soft System.

This would give them real-time data on Traffic Infringement Notices (TIN) online and updating court proceedings.

As part of this agreement Police would provide suitably qualified personnel for data entry into the LTA Soft System. LTA would reciprocate by facilitating easy access to Police for entering, searching and registering TIN’s.

The MoU would also see Police providing training and handling of intelligence information and other related matters to LTA officers.

LTA chairperson, Vijay Maharaj said: “This MOU recognises that the Fiji Police Force and the LTA share an enduring tradition of close co-operation in areas of common interest.”

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said the MOU would enhance their capability to improve the process of TIN’s.

He said it would also speed up preparation of Police clearances as well as tracking down illegal drivers.

Police and LTA officials will be seconded between the two institutions to help bring about greater efficiencies in the TIN process. Source: Land Transport Authority
