A Memorandum of Understanding between Makerere University and the Uganda Police Force to provide assistance in the implementation of the different ICT initiatives has saved over USD500,000 of the Uganda Police Force's budget.

A Memorandum of Understanding between Makerere University and the Uganda Police Force to provide assistance in the implementation of the different ICT initiatives has saved over USD500,000 of the Uganda Police Force's budget.

Under this Memorandum of Understanding, Makerere University has been able to develop for the Uganda Police Force a Human Resource Management Information System which has enabled the force computerize its Human Resource Records.

The Human Resource component of the Uganda Police Force has been successfully automated, and with a click of a button, one is able to know how many people are on the force or even how many are about to retire. This will lead to an end of manual record keeping at the Police Force.

This application developed by graduates of CIT and the National Software Incubation Program has been fully deployed and it is envisaged that it will be commissioned in May 2011 after all the tests have been concluded.

Under this Memorandum of Understanding, Makerere University, through the School of Computing and Informatics Technology (CIT), has also trained police officers in ICT. To date, over 300 police officers have undergone ICT Training.

The Uganda Police Force, on request from the School of Computing and Informatics Technology (CIT), recommended Commissioned Officers to undergo this training. The School supported the development and establishment of a Computer Applications Curricula for cadet officers undergoing training at the Police Training School Masindi.
