The police have developed two computer programs to help them manage the evacuation of settlements in the Gaza Strip and the northern West Bank next month.
The first will give the evacuating forces real-time information about every house to be evacuated, such as how many people live in it and whether it has been evacuated already.
It will also keep track of how many settlers have been bused to the collection points, how many people have been arrested and the lock-ups to which they have sent.
The program is meant to provide an up-to-date picture of how the evacuation is going, both to commanders in the field and to senior police officers, thereby enabling them to make appropriate decisions and to deploy their forces effectively.
The second program will track police patrol cars and provide real-time information about where they are and how many policemen are manning them.
In addition, computers have been installed in more than 200 patrol cars in the run-up to the disengagement. These will enable policemen to access the entire police database of suspects and vehicles.
