The Attorney-General Department's new $50 million law enforcement initiative CrimTrac last week launched its interactive Web site aimed at curbing crime.
Designed and built by e-commerce integration company Powerlan; the Web site targets the general public, the police community, legal specialists, justice practitioners and parliamentarians.
Integrating over 2.5 million fingerprints as well as a DNA database and the National Automated Fingerprint Identification System, the site is designed to facilitate searches on policy details, status reports, links to other relevant sites and email contact addresses for further information.
According to Powerlan, the site is the first in a raft of Commonwealth Government sites the company will help to develop in the coming months.
Powerlan managing director Theo Baker said he was pleased with the way the project had gone and that he was looking forward to ongoing work with the government.
"With the CrimTrac website, finding Government information is a much more simple, intuitive and productive process and we are pleased to have been of assistance," said Baker.
The address for the new CrimTrac web site is www.crimtrac.gov.au
