Chief of Criminal Investigations Department of the Islamic Republic of Iran Police, Commander Mohammad Qanbari, stated that in the last year, the Criminal Investigations Police succeeded in detecting over 90 percent of crimes committed throughout the country, ILNA reported.
This achievement materialized thanks to increased operational mobility due to “realization of scientific, laboratory, intelligence and technological potentials and also the expertise of detectives,” he said.
Emphasizing the importance of expanded police patrol to decisively combat crimes, he added, “Plans are on the agenda for this year as well to reduce the time between crime occurrence and detection, focusing on geographical aspects of crimes and employing the expertise of retired detectives.”
The Chief of Criminal Investigations Department of Police specified the increased intelligence dominance through actions taken to improve the performance of Criminal Information Center.
“Improving and equipping this center raises detectives’ control and helps them in identification of criminals and monitoring their movements,” he noted.
Commander Qanbari then announced interaction with Interpol (International Criminal Police Organization) in order to prevent suspects’ escape, as well as identifying and arresting escaped convicts abroad as another plan for the current year.
“In this relation,” he added, “professional meetings have been held to lay the groundwork.”
In conclusion, the high ranking officer was appreciative of a five percent increase in the robbery detection rate, in addition to a three percent decrease in fraudulent activities and swindling in the past year.
