The ambitious Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) project which aims to create a comprehensive system to enhance the efficiency of policing through e-governance has lost momentum as a result of the remoteness, terrain and lack of power in several areas of Assam.
Left with little option, state police recently approached the Centre for help. "At least 374 sites have been connected using the BSNL network whereas 91 locations are working offline due to connectivity issues. The matter has been taken up with the Centre," DGP Mukesh Sahay said.
Under the CCTNS, at least 312 police stations and 154 other offices including police headquarters, scientific and technical organizations, ballistic and fingerprint bureaus will be linked.
"Besides river police and a few railway stations, police stations in Sivasagar and Karbi Anglong as well as several sites in Chirang, Dhubri, Dima Hasao, Tinsukia and other districts are yet to be covered by the project," a top police officer engaged with the project said.
So far CCTNS training has been imparted to more than 2,000 police personnel; 8,000 other police personnel have been trained on basic computer operations. The trained officials have been involved in digitizing police database and records. The entire digitized data will be uploaded on the principal server at the State Data Centre.
"The project will enable easy sharing of information among police stations, state or union territory headquarters and other agencies," he added.
Exclusive email services have been are provided to all the connected police stations and higher offices under the system. Nearly 25 lakh emails have been transacted using the system so far.
