ICTs are effectively showing new dimensions to old institutional setups. There is a reinforced thrust for an informed and participatory citizenry for efficient e-governance. It goes without saying that impact of ICT on institutional changes is fast spreading across the boundaries of social and political arrangements of societies. This is because ICT is the biggest enabler of change and process reforms with minimum resistance. Decades of attempts for government and process reforms fade in the face of what ICT has achieved in few years. In this paper, the idea to make enterprise applications interoperable via central relational databases to support road safety and crime control system is proposed. The following sections discusses how the notion of online decentralised database can be adopted to structure specific solutions to interoperability problems. Section 5 gives the architecture, design and technique for the web-based database implementation; how the database can be processed and accurate statistics about law enforcement generated and analysed to support planning, decision making and control of operations by the authorities involved in enforcement of law is shown. The concludes with a summary of the salient points.
