"With your help, we have saved millions of euros"

After ten years as the Mission’s advisor to the IT Administration of the Palestinian Civil Police, Kristjan Paemurru has returned to Estonia. His task in Palestine was to build a computerized network able to boost the operational and administrative capabilities of the police.

“With the help of Kristjan, the Palestinian Civil Police has saved millions of euros over the past 10 years and has been able to build a team of 35 well-trained Information & Communication Technology practitioners”, told Colonel Suleiman Abu Al-Rub shortly before Kristjan Paemurru

During his time in Palestine, Kristjan has designed about two dozens of software applications to help the police manage their criminal records, human resources, incidents and operations, traffic accidents and court summons. The network and software applications have be valued to the extent that five other Palestinian security services today are benefitting from them.
