Guam - The Department of Public Works' Office of Highway Safety and the Guam Police Department introduced its new e-Citation program at Adelup this morning. The initiative is a software program that electronically creates summons using laptops and printers in the patrol units, and transmits the data immediately for the Superior Court of Guam to process.

GPD Captain Steve Ignacio says the federally-funded project allowed the department to get ten wireless units totaled at some $50,000. He says GPD anticipates doubling the amount of wireless units next year, noting, "It's an investment because you don't waste paper anymore, you reduce on errors, reduce down time for people waiting for crashed and that's something that we are going to improving on is the waiting time."

Also introduced is Online Systems for Crash Analysis and Reporting (OSCAR). Ignacio says the system helps to identify target areas throughout the island that for example are more prone to accidents.
