Database Training in Fiji

Usofono leads a training session on extracting case data to Excel, with Lawrence from Solomon Islands practicing his skills. Other police staff keeping a watchful eye are Rose (Solomons), Sepolo (Tuvalu), Anna (Tonga) and Lamese (Tuvalu).

A workshop for seven pacific island police staff was held in Nadi, Fiji from 14 to 18 July.  Staff from Tuvalu, Kiribati, Solomon islands, Samoa and Kiribati attended.  For some this was their first formal training, which was led by two very skilled staff from Samoa and Kiribati.  Usufono from Samoa, and Maneaba from Kiribati have been working with the Jade Investigator (CMIS) database for some time and they were able to train the new staff from the other countries.

This was a first for PPDVP and a great achievement for all.  Kim Bloomfield from PPDVP led the training and set the workplan for the others.

Susan Mason from Jade and Programme Manager Cam Ronald updated all of the laptop computers for the countries and installed new versions of Jade Investigator on the devices.  Cam said “Upgrading machines is always an adventure, and this was the case for us in Nadi.  However, all of the records for over 6,000 domestic violence cases were successfully transferred to the new laptops.  The data is the most important thing and the Jade Investigator development and support team in Christchurch provided support Susan as this significant upgrade was done.  A great result!”

Susan Mason from Jade surrounded by the laptops being upgraded to Jade Investigator – she kept smiling all the time!

The CMIS database database was upgraded through four versions to the current version of Jade Investigator.
