While the Law and Justice Sector is developing the criminal database system, many provinces will have difficulties accessing internet.
The officers from Wewak, East Sepik province, are some of the users who have to contend with slow internet speeds.
The facilities and equipment needed to implement the program are also challenges for the Law and Justice Sector.
As the conference discussed how to implement the criminal database system, the recurring challenge that came up was the ability of officers outside of main centres to access the internet.
Slow internet speeds will continue to hinder access for the Law and Justice Sector when managing the criminal database system.
The officers will be importing and uploading data that in itself needs sound infrastructure, equipment and bandwidth.
In some areas, Digicel is accessible but internet speeds are too slow to allow for large data uploads as is needed with the Criminal Database System.
So the management of the Law and Justice Sector have to increase the capacity and also buy new equipment.
This database system is a web-based application that can be accessed by officers of the Law and Justice Sector.
The equipment used in accessing the system include computer desktops, laptops and smart phones.
The Corporal and Officer in Charge for the Boram Correctional Institution in Wewak said her office is lacking resources to implement this project.
