However, the system will be not available half the summer holiday, from July 12 until August 5.

“The system will migrate into the government cloud,” the police explained why the service is to be unavailable for nearly four weeks.

The government cloud is a platform that enables the government to create a more efficient way of sharing its technical sources, including databases and servers.
