GIS Map Locations of JLOS Institutions


To enhance service delivery, the sector has focused attention on ensuring the existence of a complete chain of justice country wide. In 2009, data was collected on the physical mapping of JLOS presence but due to various changes in administrative units coupled with new investments; this data has not been updated.

To facilitate this process, the sector is producing updated mapping of the sector institutions in both hard and soft form using a Geographic Information System (GIS) offering robust capabilities to store, analyze, display, query and document geographical information relating to JLOS presence country wide. This computerized information system based on geo-referenced data enables spatial analyses and allows for map-based reporting.

Geo-Information Communication (GIC) Limited was contracted to collect country-wide geo data on JLOS infrastructure and also develop and deploy a Geographical Information System (GIS) to manage this data. This project is in the implementation phase. Below are the map locations currently available for viewing.



Map Locations: Courts

Map Locations: DPP Stations

Map Locations: Police Stations and Posts

Map Locations: Prisons

Map Locations: Remand Homes

Map Locations: Immigration Boarder Posts

Map Locations: Ministry of Internal Affairs Offices
