Bhubaneswar: In a further push towards complete digitisation of the policing system, Orissa Police is planning to enable the investigating officers to use laptops, tabs and smart phones for their works under the Crime Criminal Tracking and Networking System (CCTNS).
This was revealed by director general of police (DGP) RP Sharma while reviewing the progress of implementation of CCTNS project at a meeting held at his office. He informed the media that many manual registers will be abolished from the New Year.
All the police stations in the state will work under CCTNS and the station diary in manuscript form manual registers will be abolished from the New Year, Sharma said.
Reviewing the progress of implementation of the CCTNS project, the DGP said 589 of 612 police stations are now connected online to the State Data Centre at Bhubaneswar and all
FIRs are being drawn through the computer system.
The remaining 23 police stations yet to be connected are mainly Marine police stations and Energy PSs which are in the process of being established.
Sharma said, “The CCTNS is like core banking,” adding that all police station processes have to migrate online. The hardware and software backbone have been put in place and the
focus is now on increasing use in terms of data entry and retrieval.
“We are now planning to move beyond intranet to Internet for scaling up the system so that investigating officers can use laptops, tabs and smart phones for easily accessing the
database and generating reports,” the DGP said.
The CCTNS now operates through an intranet provided by BSNL. But, at many places there have been connectivity issues, which will be addressed by enabling connection on broadband Internet.
The existing system, Sharma said, has limited the use to computers at police stations, whereas policing requires report generation and access to crime data on the go. The necessary security architecture will be put in place.
The review meeting also discussed ways of popularising the 13 citizen-centric services being provided through the Orissa Police Citizen portal as part of the government’s desire to emphasise on transparency, technology and teamwork.
