In a review meeting on the CCTNS project on Friday, the DGP RP Sharma said, “We have decided to move beyond intranet to internet for scaling up the system so that the investigating officers can use laptops, tabs and smartphones for easily accessing the database and generating records. FIRs and station diaries will be registered online from January next year at all the police stations.”
The CCTNS now operates through an intranet provided by BSNL. But, at many places there have been connectivity issues, which will be addressed by enabling connection on broadband internet. The existing system has limited the use to computers at police stations, whereas policing requires report generation and access to crime data on the
go. The necessary security architecture will be put in place, Sharma added.
