IT Minister KT Rama Rao and Home Minister Nayani Narsimha Reddy, today have declared the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) project as live, in the State.
CCTNS is a Mission Mode Project under the National e-Governance Plan of Government of India.
The project was started in the Telangana State in 2012, and has over 100 locations.
All the police stations and offices of the senior police officials have been linked to it now.
Under the project, the system will generate SMS alerts to complainants after lodging a complaint with a police station.
The SMS will serve as an acknowledgment and will have a petition ID.
This, in turn, can be used to track the status of the petition through the State police website, (www.tspolice.gov.in).
Furthermore, the details of missing persons too will be available through the system, on the police website.
To enable the CCTNS, every police station, will be supplied with computers, multi functional printers and dedicated network connectivity among other facilities.
The Telangana Police, will now move from the e-Cops platform, to CCTNS.
Speaking on the occasion, both the ministers pointed out that the Telangana police was identified as being an advanced State in the implementation of IT applications, by the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Furthermore, the Ministers, appreciated the efforts of the police in utilizing technology.
