The Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) Project, a mission mode project (MMP) under the national e-governance plan of government of India, was launched for the Manimajra police station here on Monday.
UT advisor KK Sharma launched the project at the UT police headquarters. With the inauguration of this project, all 11 police stations in Chandigarh have the CCTNS facility now.
Chandigarh police has become the first organisation in the country with 100% implementation of the project at a police-station level.
CCTNS aims at creating a comprehensive and integrated system for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of policing by adopting the principle of e-governance and creating a nationwide networking infrastructure for evolution of IT-enabled-state-of-the-art tracking system around 'Investigation of Crimes and Detection of Criminals'.
It will not only automate police functions at the police station and higher levels, but will also create facilities and mechanism to provide public services such as registration of online complaints, ascertaining the status of case registered at the police station, verification of persons etc. Citizen services will also be launched by the UT police soon.
