BENGALURU: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with officials of the Cubbon Park police station here through video-conferencing on August 26 to review its digital policing. Modi has chosen three police stations, including Cubbon Park, for the interaction. The other two are in Uttar Pradesh and Assam, a top police official here said.

The three stations have adopted smart policing and digital India initiative under the government's ambitious Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) project. "The Prime Minister will review our digital policing through video-conferencing from Delhi on August 26," the police official told PTI.

The CCTNS project, that aims at using IT-enabled network to investigate crimes and trackdown criminals, was implemented in Karnataka in 2011. The Centre had granted Rs 70 crore to Karnataka for CCTNS.

HP Software and BSNL were maintaining the system and providing communication services respectively, the official said. Additional General of Police (Computer Wing) Ravindranath is making all the arrangements for the high-profile video-conferencing during which Modi would also interact with state Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukerjee and DGP Om Praksh.

DCP (Central) Sandeep Patil and the Cubbon Park Inspector would interact with the Prime Minister from the police station, the official said. Patil said the station was chosen probably because of the successful implementation of the digitised policing.

"There are 925 stations in Karnataka, including 108 in the city, that have adopted digitised policing under centrally-monitored CCTNS project, but Cubbon Park police station could have been chosen because of its successful implementation," he said.

The station was equipped with seven computers in which important documents like FIR, chargesheet, police verification and case status among other things had been stored and can be accessed from anywhere, Patil said.
