Haryana: The Haryana Police Department has retained its first place in the monthly assessment progress dashboard for all states and union territories by the Union Department of the Interior (MHA) and the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB). Recently, the police have introduced a new feature whereby First Information Report (FIR) status updates are sent to complainants via SMS in Hindi. The messages also contain a link to download the FIR. This information was announced at the meeting of the State Apex Committee for the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System, chaired by Haryana Chief Secretary Sanjeev Kaushal.
The CCTNS Haryana project aims to improve citizen-friendliness, promote transparency in policing operations and enhance the delivery of citizen-centric services through the effective use of information and communication technology (ICT). He said that bandwidth has been improved in a total of 277 Haryana police stations, showing Haryana Police’s commitment to continuously improve connectivity. He urged officials to expedite work on the connectivity of the State Wide Area Network, which would provide 10 Mbps bandwidth to the newly established 47 police stations, including the Statewide Cybercrime Prevention and Assistance Program.
At the meeting, it was announced that various reports were developed in the CCTNS system to meet the specific requirements of the Haryana Anti-Corruption Bureau. In addition, a new provision has been made specifically for sending Rakka (a document prepared by the doctor in the Medico Legal Examination and Postmortem Report System) via CCTNS to the appropriate Station House Officer (SHO). A warning will also be emailed to the SHO and the relevant Superintendent of Police (SP). In addition, a similar determination was made for the Medical Legal Report (MLR) and Post Mortem Report (PMR) stored in MedliAPR.
The integration of the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) with CCTNS has been successfully completed. This integration allows citizens to submit requests for device locking or unlocking online. In addition, CCTNS has been successfully integrated with various other departments such as health, prisons, the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), prosecutors and courts through the Interoperable Criminal Justice System (ICJS). This achievement fosters seamless information sharing and collaboration between these departments, further strengthening the criminal justice system.
