Criminal tracking technology launched in Chandigarh

The advisor to the administrator, K K Sharma, inaugurated the pilot Go-Live of the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) project, aimed at improving police efficiency, at the police station in Sector 19, Chandigarh, on Friday.

"This is a big change in the UT Police Department and it will help police officials to be more efficient in their investigations, K K Sharma said before going on to laud the UT Police's work. "I have seen your work on the field and I appreciate your effort to keep the law and order situation in the city good. CCTNS is a new addition and will help in monitoring crime in the city," he added.

Deputy Inspector General (DIG), Alok Kumar said: "With the introduction of CCTNS, the process of investigation will be made more transparent with the addition. We will soon be introduced in the rest of the police stations of the city". The project has been launched at the police station in Sector 19 and at the Office of Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) East. The Station House officer (SHO) of the Police Station Sector 19, Inspector Harjit Kaur said: "We have already updated all the FIR's of 2013. Also, we are updating the DDR's on a daily basis."

CCTNS is part of the national e-Governance plan and is aimed at ensuring police efficiency. The project will help the police in tracking crimes and criminals and facilitate the use of information technology in policing.

This project will also assist in keeping track of anti-socials by maintaining their crime records and moreover, the status of complaints, information about the complainant and accused and FIR's can be accessed through the project. CCTNS will ensure that all the police stations, sub-divisions and police headquarters are inter-connected. The project aims at increasing transparency and skills of the police. The police stations and their activities across the state would be computerised to help better monitoring and management of service delivery to the citizens.
