          Police officers undergo computer training at SP’s office in Jamshedpur. Picture by Animesh Sengupta The East Singhbhum district police is turning computer savvy, or at least trying to, in a bid to keep criminals at bay.

           A 15-day crash course on criminal and crime tracking network system got underway on Tuesday at the SP’s office in Jamshedpur, to teach policemen to use a computer for speedy crime detection.

          However, as a computer is almost an alien concept for many policemen, the training programme has become a bit of a challenge for the teachers. The personnel are learning the basics from a professional.

          “Teaching some of the policemen is very difficult as they are not only not conversant with the basics of computers, but are also very slow. However, I am trying my best to teach them as much as I can in this short time,” said Sonu Kumar, one of the teachers.

          “I have to make them learn how to receive and send mails, how to open a file and enter data into a computer,” said Kumar, while speaking to The Telegraph.

          Speaking about the training programme, senior superintendent of police Akhilesh Kumar Jha the basic idea was to expedite the process of detecting crime.

          “When the officers become well-conversant with computers, they will be able to find out the case history of any criminal at the click of a mouse sitting anywhere in the state,” said the SSP.

          Jha said the police personnel would also be able to compile a case diary, charge-sheet, feed injury report and other documents necessary for completing an investigation.
