Computerization in the Philippine National Police spans more than a decade of hard and pioneering work. The Service has gained much since its precursor, the Philippine Constabulary Data Processing Unit (PCDPU), was established 44 years ago on October 18, 1965. The Unit was renamed three years later as Crime Information and Data Processing Center (CRIDPC), concentrated mainly on collating crime- related data from field.
It became the Constabulary Computer Center on March 1, 1972 but its main task remained as the nationwide crime data bank for use in crime studies (made) accessible to law enforcement agencies on a direct inquiry basis. On January 13, 1988, the Constabulary Computer Center (CCC) was renamed PC/INP Computer Center. Upon the creation of the PNP under RA 6975 on January 1991, PNP Computer Service was officially organized. Through Resolution Number 2008-532 dated November 11, 2008, as approved by NAPOLCOM, Computer Service was renamed “Information Technology Management Service”. At present ITMS carries a broader responsibility in keeping records of data on crimes, it also performs general administrative work support for the PNP.
