In an effort to upgrade and renovate the administration system in the state, Bidar police in Karnataka, India, is introducing IT in its administration system.
The State Government of Karnataka has initiated technology upgradation, human resource development and building construction and renovation as part of the modernisation programme. Under this initiative all crime-related data of the last eight years has been computerised in the districts. This includes complete information of a case from the first information report to its charge-sheet. This would be connected to the national database as part of the Crime and Criminal Information System (CCIS). CCIS enables police officials of any state to access any information anytime. This helps track down criminals who commit offences in one state and escape into another. It helps the department establish antecedents of people before issuing passports. This data has been linked to the state crime record bureaus of neighbouring states such as Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. The department had been equipped with a hi-tech live scanner finger print recorder and detector. It is more efficient than manual methods. It ensures faster and more accurate crime detection.
