Ajilon has extended its contract with the Western Australia Police (WAPOL) for another five years, worth a total AU$33 million.

The contract will see Ajilon's continue the provision of its application support services to WAPOL, where it will provide over 70 full-time consultants to support the justice organisation.

In addition, Ajilon has secured three new contracts with WAPOL, budgeted for AU$17 million. The new projects include developing a new licensing and registration system for firearms and security related licenses, improving custodial management, and implementing a new solution for the creation and management of prosecution briefs.

In June, Ajilon won the government category of the 23rd WAiTTA Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunications Awards for implementing the Justice Information Exchange. The system is an integrated prosecution, bail management, and court booking platform. It allows all justice agencies, including the WA Police, Director of Public Prosecutions, and Departments of the Attorney General and Corrective Services, access to information about a defendant's progress through the justice system on a single platform.

Previously, Ajilon also led the development of the Public Sex Offenders Register (PSOR) system and the Immediate Disqualification Notice (IDN) system for WAPOL.

Ajilon managing director Ger Doyle said the company is delighted to have secured a full five-year contract extension with WA Police.

"We look forward to building on the award-winning work we have already completed with WAPOL. It is so rewarding to see that an Australian company can deliver business solutions powerful enough to see off large international competitors," he said.

"It underlines the excellent local creativity and agility and in particular our innovative work with WAPOL is a great example of how we help our clients adapt to change."

Ajilon initially won its contract with WA Police back in May 2009.
