With the recent clamour for an ICT-based government (e-Government) by the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), better services are expected through e-health, e-education, e-business, e-police, and e-judiciary to mention just a few. Particularly, in a developing economy like Africa where governance is characterized by hunger, poverty, sickness, unemployment and war. E-Government will guarantee better quality services, transparency, economic empowerment, and higher productivity without gender discrimination. This paper considers a robust e-policing system which is prime to e-Government and will guarantee a safe, secure, and crime-free environment for all and most importantly an environment that is conducive for foreign investment. This system incorporates Electronic Driving License (EDL) for tracking traffic offenders, enhanced e-surveillance through the deployment of internet camera and distributed patrol vehicles equipped with both electronic and mobile devices and possibly incorporating a Global Positioning System (GPS) for fast tracking of offenders. The system ensures an increased police presence in the community which places a check on crime rate. Both EDL and Crime Record Database (CRDB) connects to a National Identity DataBase (NIDB) for effective monitoring and control. Keywords: e-Government, e-policing, Voice recognition, and e-surveillance.
