26 June 2017

Angola will have an Integrated Public Security Management System to respond in a timely manner to requests from citizens in changes of public order, catastrophes and others related to security, the Angolan Interior Minister said on Thursday in Luanda.

Ângelo Veiga Tavares also said that the implementation of the Integrated Public Security Management System, which is already underway, with the creation of the respective national, municipal and response units, will introduce a new model of intervention in the country by the different bodies responsible for security and order.

Taking stock of 38 years of ministry activities, the minister said that despite the difficulties, it was possible “to maintain the country’s territorial integrity, peace, security, public order and tranquility,” noting that it the proper climate for the normal functioning of State institutions was also guaranteed.

Chinese company Beijing Global Safety Technology Co Ltd announced in early June it had signed a contract to install an integrated public safety system with the Angolan government.

The contract, which has a term of execution of 24 months, includes the supply of computer applications and will cost the Angolan state US$62.6 million. (macauhub)
