Jaipur is being introduced to a new era of globalisation and urbanisation. The city has witnessed a myriad of meaningful developments and accomplished unbelievable milestones in the last four years. It has become an epitome of cultural diversity and historic beauty.
The city has also stepped up it’s security radar and upped it’s security measures. From establishing new police stations and installing cameras at crime-prone locations and elsewhere, the city has been successful in embracing new changes for good.
After nearly 10 years of logjam and technical laggard, the State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) commenced it’s operations towards formulating the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS). The operations started from Monday.
The software is being strategically built. This software gives huge impetus to the need of digitalizing criminal records. It enables recording of FIRs and charge sheets at centralised software. Not only this, the data base will be readily available to all 861 police stations across the state.
On Monday, as many as 24 police stations of Jaipur police were connected with the CCTNS. Additional commissioner of police (First) Prafull Kumar said training was given to cops after which 24 police stations were connected with the CCTNS.
“All the records of a criminal, right from the registration of FIR to evidence and filing of charge sheet will be made available online. The police will not have to wait for eons to get the details about the criminal record of an accused,” Kumar said.
The CCTNS system will aid police in tracking and tracing the past records of criminals in the easiest way possible. Recording of FIRs and IT-enabled database of criminals will help investigation officers to reinforce speedy investigations.
Reportedly, all police stations will be digitally connected to the CCTNS software by March-end.
“Rajasthan police’s CCTNS will have several important features like E-FIR. Also, permission for events, protests, performance and verifications of employees and tenants could be done through the new software,” Kaviraj told a media agency.
“If a particular police station in some remote corner of the state arrests some suspects, then cops can match the details with the database available on CCTNS. CCTNS will give the complete criminal history of the suspects,” the official added.
