As part of Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) programme, the state police of Jharkhand plans to come up with a new website.
The citizen-friendly looking website will be launched on November 15.
The new initiative, aimed at making policing more accountable to the citizen, would be unveiled in the State as part of the nationwide Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System Network (CCTNS) programme.
In keeping with their objective to projecting themselves 'friends of the people', the Jharkhand Police have roped in the State unit of the National Informatics Centre (NIC) to upgrade and modify the existing website with additional features.
“The upgraded website, to be launched on November 15, will have links to all major police stations of the State and complaints registered with the Jharkhand police website would be transferred to the concerned police station for quick action,” Jharkhand Director General of Police (DGP) Gauri Shankar Rath said.
The website is being designed in a manner to accept feedback of the people about policing and behaviour of the police personnel.
Tech-savvy personnel in the police are being identified and trained to man operation of CCTNS at different district headquarters and police stations to be liked through the net.
Launch of online facility of lodging police complaints assumes significance in the light of recently enacted Electronic Services Delivery Act 2011, which envisages time bound disposal of grievances.
“However, manual action is required for lodging complaints for serious nature of crime. They need to personally visit the police stations to lodge the first information reports (FIRs), which required witnesses. These FIRs would also be put online for monitoring of action by the senior officers,” Rath said.
