Bangalore city traffic police is moving into a 'paperless regime of enforcement' with officers getting hi-tech 'BlackBerry and Bluetooth' supported printers on Wednesday.

Project "Black Berry assisted Traffic Enforcement" that was initiated by city traffic police in 2008 has finally reached its final stage, Kanataka Home Minister V S Acharya said.

Launching the second phase of the BlackBerry plan in Bangalore, he said "with all traffic officers upto the rank of assistant sub-inspector getting BlackBerry and Bluetooth supported printers today, city traffic police will move into a paperless regime of enforcement."

This technology would be implemented throughout Karnataka, Acharya said without specifying a timeframe for it.

The benefits of using the BlackBerry system of enforcement include data base of traffic offenders, real time access to offence history of drivers and real time "Management Information System (MIS)" where performance of each officers, types of vehicles being penalised and type of offences being booked is accessible over internet in real time, he said.

Phase II, which involves 370 BlackBerry and printers, has more advanced and robust equipment with protective cover. It is also backed with elaborate connectivity and data storage in State Data Centre, additional commissioner of police (traffic & security) Praveen Sood said.

Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari unveiled 'Violation Evidence Management System' (VEMS) on the occasion.
