BHUBANESWAR:The officers and staff of the Commissionerate Police (CP) have completed their training on Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System (CCTNS) project. Almost all police stations, barring a handful, have already been connected through the CCTNS network.

The Assistant Commissioners of Police, Inspectors-in-Charge and other officers of the CP have engaged staff of each police station to update and upload old records into the CCTNS database.

The CCTNS will aid investigating officers (IO) to contact external agencies like jails, courts, transport, passport and foreigner registration offices for relevant information.

“Currently, they have to manually call people, write paper-letters or send their staff to collect the information. CCTNS will reduce day-to-day paper work of the IOs, thereby helping them to effectively devote their time and energy in investigation,” said Police Commissioner RP Sharma.

Apart from helping the police track complaints online, the CCTNS will serve as a repository of the biometric profiles of suspects, accused and convicts.

The CCTNS is a mission mode project under national e-Governance plan of the Centre.
