Muscat - 

ROP launched a mobile application on Saturday, also observed as Royal Oman Police Day. The app will enable the public to access various e-services on Android devices.

The initiative will contribute to mobile governance and has been launched keeping in mind the rapidly increasing mobile phone penetration in Oman. The application, which can be used anywhere in the country, enables users to enquire about traffic offences, check the status of visa applications, locate nearby police stations, and also make emergency calls to 9999.

“The launch of the app is yet another initiative by ROP to enhance services by taking advantage of modern technologies. It will benefit citizens and residents by providing various ROP e-services round the clock on smartphones,” an ROP official told Muscat Daily.

The app will provide the latest news from ROP across categories such as accidents, announcements and crime, as well as information on various services provided by the law enforcement agency such as procedures, documents required, service locations and fees. It also features frequently asked questions and ROP telephone directory information.

“The application is easy to download and use on all Android devices. Information is available in both Arabic and English,” the official said. The app can be downloaded from https://play. google.com/store/apps/deta ils?id=pkg.rop.

The move is part of efforts to modernise government services and make them accessible electronically.
