He said an “Intelligence Unit” has been established and an armed police platoon has been attached to the ACC to strengthen its hand.

"A web-based software will be implemented to properly monitor all commission activities, starting from the lodging of complaints, to investigation, filing, and follow up of corruption cases. For the effective use of this software, 200 officers will be trained."
