Gurgaon,Panchkula and Ambala selected for CCTNS on pilot basis

The Haryana government has chosen three districts — Gurgaon,Ambala and Panchkula — where the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) will be launched on pilot basis.

Based on the success achieved in tracking the criminals,the project will later be rolled out across the state,Chief Secretary P K Chaudhery told reporters after a meeting of the state Apex Committee here.

The project would also create a platform for sharing intelligence and crime and criminal information across the states,the country and other state-level and central government agencies,he added.

“CCTNS is a comprehensive and integrated system for enhancing efficiency and effective policing at all levels,especially at the police station-level. It is achieved through e-governance and creation of a nationwide networked infrastructure for evolution of state-of-the-art IT tracking system,” Chaudhery said.

The system integrator and the Inspector General of Police (Telecommunications),who was the nodal officer of CCTNS,Haryana,will prepare a list of agreed activities which would be completed in a time-bound manner so as to start monitoring (crime and criminals) immediately.

“The required resources will be deployed at the earliest,” the Chief Secretary added.

According to the state government,28 computer training labs have already been commissioned in Haryana for providing computer awareness training under the project.

“At least 190 selected officials have been imparted training so that they could further train officials of their units on basic computer awareness. In all 23,039 officials have also been trained in basic computer awareness in different police training institutions and CCTNS labs,” he added.
