Bangalore, Jan 2 (IANS) Wipro Infotech has developed an integrated software for the police to combat crime and terror, the IT bellwether announced here Friday.“The software application, which is in a pilot stage, will help the police and other law enforcement agencies to combat the fast emerging hi-tech world of crime and terror,” the company said in a statement.

According to Ranbir Singh, Wipro’s general manager for government and defence, the software will enable real-time information sharing between the various police units. The online application covers all activities related to the day-to-day functioning of police departments, including the back-end processes of administration, finance and stores.
