    Pan-India terrorist networks, sleeper cells, intra-state gangsters, beware! For, the state police are gearing up to implement the Crime and Criminal Tracking and Network System (CCTNS) — an ambitious Central government project of over Rs 2,000 crore that aims to connect all the police stations and security agencies across the country through the internet.

    While the CCTNS is ready for pilot-testing in at least nine states and Union territories, the city police have sanctioned Rs1.30 lakh in all its five regions towards training its staff in the software.

    These five regions in the city cover over 90 police stations. Soon, every police station in the state aims to have at least one police officer and five constables trained in handling the CCTNS — an uphill task considering that most of them have a trifling knowledge about computers, software, let alone the CCTNS programme.
    Hence, Maharashtra, including its crime capital Mumbai, where the infrastructure is still being placed, will be able to witness the full functionality of CCTNS only by March, which is the deadline for the project on a pan-India level.

    Confirming that the software developed for the project was ready and being handed to a fewstates and Union Territories for intensive pilot testing, a Central home ministry official said if successful, the initiative has the scope of changing the face of policing in the country.

    “All the crime records and data about criminals and other related information from across the country will be available to all the police stations and investigating agencies simultaneously at the click of a mouse,” said Superintendent of police, JD Supekar of CID, Pune, who is supervising the project in Maharashtra. Apart from assuring faster police action, the CCTNS will also help the citizens a great deal and make the registering of the grievancesand its tracking easier.

    In fact, experts said the need for CCTNS has long been felt, due to the rising number of crimes, especially the terror-related ones, where the investigating agencies have time and again failedto coordinate and cooperate due to lack of connectivity.

    According to the sleuths, CCTNS will involve the over 14,000 police stations,around 6000 higher offices in the police department, including crime branch offices, anti-terrorism squads, forensic laboratories, around 1300 prisons and other governmentagencies responsible for policing and maintaining law and order. As part of the project, data of over last 10 years will be digitised and stored. Also, a special software developed for the project will translate data into different state languages.

    The pilot project has already started in Rajasthan, Delhi, Banglore, and a few Union territories.

    I think these types of "grand" announcements must only be made when the process is either completed or is halfway through, I would recommend implementing this rule firmly first, following this rule/policy and then the print the success rates in these announcements.. that would be much more credible and relevant than just planning

    This boasting is a perennial issue in us.
    To hell with the high end technology, I would be more impressed and thankful to God if they first give working condition rifles to the cops. How long are they going to cling to the teetering Springfield 303s?
    That should be the first step, rather than having the cops leap over to some fancy comm networks.

    Calls for the dhinka chika song and dance!!

    In bangalore, CCTVs were installed at all major traffic junctions with the purpose of tracking traffic violation and then tickets being sent to the registered address. All equipment gathering dust these days. Camera wala, mantri, babu paisa bana Gaya.
