U.S. Embassy in Dushanbe Provides Electronic Crime Registration System to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tajikistan

Dushanbe, Tajikistan, June 25, 2021 – The U.S. Embassy handed over an Electronic Crime (E-Crime) Registration System to Tajikistan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA). The purpose of the e-crime system is for the MIA to ensure access to justice, protect the rights and legitimate interests of citizens, allow police officers to manage criminal records, and provide legal records to participants of criminal proceedings.

Based on a request from Tajikistan’s MIA, the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Office (INL) of the U.S. Embassy and its Community Policing program implementer, Saferworld, developed the e-crime registration system. The total cost of the e-crime project was $662,000, which covered software development, a server, equipment, communication infrastructure, and training for more than 275 MIA officers to administer the system.

This initiative is another example of the U.S. Government’s commitment to its partnership with the MIA in developing community-centered policing in Tajikistan by jointly implementing a Community Policing Program. This program increased stability and improved access to justice in Tajikistan.
