Training for cops to track & crack cases

LOHARDAGA: Police are undergoing computer training to step in to Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System (CCTNS), a project to digitize records from a police station to district police headquarters.

More than 200 police jawans and officers are undergoing training to operate computer that includes internet surfing, fundamentals like data entry, MSOffice software among others. The training is still on at the police headquarters to include rest of the police personnel. They are being given the training in shifts in three batches that include instructors also. A trainee takes a week to learn the designed course, which is being given by two experts - Sandeep Kumar from a Kolkata-based NIIT Technology institute and Srimant Prakash of HCL.

Sandeep said, "The police department aims to set up necessary networking systems at all the police stations by May 2012 as it aims to start 'e-samadhan' website that will be an internet-linked system helpful to crime control, nabbing criminals, fast investigation and will reduce physical movements to collect necessary history of particular criminals. Old criminal records are being uploaded on the net. The records from 2006 to 2010 have been uploaded till now".

Young police officers have great interest in getting the training while seniors are a little hesitant and taking extra time to be trained. Chhatarmuni Devi, a lady constable in service since 2008, said that computer was first experience to her still she could learn it since it was much interesting. Neha Kumari, a constable who joined the service in December last year, said that she was interested in learning computer since long but the opportunity could only reach her because of the service.

Superintendent of police Jitendra Kumar Singh said that hundred percent completion of the computer training would take policing to Jharkhand Police project that aims to connect police to all-India crime control system that will be much helpful to police in controlling crime. Criminal history can be known in seconds. "It will be a milestone for police in Jharkhand in crime control as all police stations and officers of the police department will be interconnected through net to exchange the necessary information online," he added.
