Police plans to conduct staff training about the Internet are on hold. The project to train staff in 20 centres around the country has been put on the back burner because of workload from other projects and the release of the police task review. Invercargill-based Constable Tim Brown, who will be in charge of the project, has also developed the police Web site at www.police.govt.nz.
Meanwhile, PeopleSoft has been dropped from a shortlist of three vendors to provide new financials for Police. The other candidates are SAP and JD Edwards.
Police IT director Jeffrey Soar says the decision was made by a user committee. PeopleSoft earlier supplied payroll and HR to Police.
