Abstract: NAFDAC is a government agency that was established to protect and promote public health by ensuring the wholesomeness, quality and safety of food and drugs consumed in Nigeria. The problems of fake and substandard products proliferation in Nigeria have affected the credibility of the healthcare system and can exert very harmful effects on the consumer resulting to illness, disability and even death. These make it imperative to fight against fake and substandard products, hence NAFDAC regulations. The objective of this paper is to design a model that will help to achieve NAFDAC stipulated objectives through digital data capture from informants, timely crime information dissemination (ie. Just-in-time crime information) and efficient crime information sharing by the various branches of NAFDAC offices in Nigeria. This model if adopted will help NAFDAC to a great extent bring crime to its minimal rate through instant flow of information.
Keywords: NAFDAC, Crime, Information system, informant, instant information flow, food and drug regulated product.
