JOHANNESBURG - Police said on Sunday, the Integrated Case Docket Management System (ICDMS) has now been implemented in 79 police stations around the country.

The ICDMS is set to replace the current IT system, allowing officers and detectives to create e-dockets that would also be connected to courts.

They aim to cover 198 more stations in the next two years.

It is believed R148 million has already been spent on the project that was implemented in 2004, and is slowly making progress.

The police's Bonginkosi Ngubane explained what the new system aims to do.

"[It's] an integrated system, that goes from SAPS (South African Police Service) to Justice to Correctional Services and Social Services as well as any other cluster department of SAPS and the NPA (National Prosecuting Authority)."
