A team of Scotland Yard Police on Monday visited Noida’s Centre for Cyber Crime Investigation (CCCI) cell and lauded the efforts of Noida Police in handling complaints related to cybercrime.
Scotland Yard’s cyber unit’s service delivery director, Alex Blatchford and three other members visited the cyber cell and met their counterparts in Noida.
He praised the way, Noida Police make use of social media channels in spreading information to citizens in real time, and keep a tab on traffic movement in the district.
Blatchford said, “The volume of complaints received by Noida police’s Cyber Crime Investigation Cell in a month, is equivalent to complaints received by Cybercrime Cell in London in a year. Despite so many complaints, Noida Police is faster in technical surveillance and location identification.”
“Both Noida Police and Scotland Yard Police use same software application for dealing with complaints on Cybercrime. Despite limitations, Noida Police’s Cyber cell is handling complaints in a very efficient manner,” said Blatchford, after looking at the statistics.
On an average, Noida police receives 50 complaints per day and about 1,500 complaints every month through its twitter handle @noidapolice. Most of the tweets are responded timely and many complaints are resolved promptly, observed the team from Scotland Yard.
“Especially in the field of obtaining call details and identifying mobile phone location, Noida Police is far ahead of the Scotland Yard Police,” Blatchford said.
He met district’s senior superintendent of police Love Kumar and his team at his office in Surajpur on Monday afternoon.
Blatchford also visited Noida Police Cyber Cell at Sector 6 and Highway traffic management system on Noida-Greater Noida expressway.
“He was impressed with the state-of-the-art setups and appreciated Noida police team for their innovative ideas and IT technology roadmap for the district,” said Vivek Ranjan Rai, in-charge of CCCI Noida.
The team also lauded UP Dial 100 service and Operation Muskaan, used to trace missing children.
