Integrating Biometrics into Police Information Management System: A Case of Zambia Police

G. Lyoko, J. Phiri, and A. Phiri
Abstract—The business processes in the security wings of most developing countries are not automated. This results in loss of documentation, difficulties in looking up documents and tedious reporting. In this study, a baseline study was carried out to ascertain the levels of formal education, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills and ICT tools utilization within the Zambia Police Service. Results showed that 47% have graduated from college, 32% completed high school and 21% had attained graduate or postgraduate degrees. In addition, 24% had received basic computer training. The survey also revealed that 39% of the respondents use their personal email for work related communications. The study also aimed at establishing the major business processes. Using the business process results from the baseline study, a model was developed. The model was used to develop a web-based prototype by integrating fingerprint biometrics. Captured fingerprint images were pre-processed using wavelet scalar quantization (WSQ) algorithm, the minutiae were extracted and a template generated using Delaunay algorithm. The developed system showed improved business process through automation.

Index Terms—Biometrics, ICT, information management system, police.
