PTI | January 7, 2013



Odisha Police on Friday said it was ready to launch the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) project on a pilot basis from January 12.

Director General of Police Prakash Mishra announced this after attending the conference of chief secretaries and DGPs of all states in New Delhi.

"We have already requested the Chief Minister to inaugurate the CCTNS to be launched in pilot basis in two districts," Mishra said over phone.

"In the first phase, Kendrapada and Angul districts will be covered under the pilot project," the DGP said, adding that the central project was being undertaken to create a national database of crime and criminals for easy sharing of information across all police stations.

The system has been designed in such a way that people can file complaints online instead of going to the police station, police said.
