CRIME AND CRIMINAL TRACKING NETWORK SYSTEM (CCTNS)
The Crime and Criminal Tracking Network Systems* (CCTNS) was conceptualized by the Ministry of Home Affairs in detailed consultation with all stakeholders and will be implemented as a “Mission Mode Project (MMP)” and will adopt the guidelines of the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP).
CCTNS aims at creating a comprehensive and integrated system for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of policing at all levels and especially at the Police Station level through adoption of principles of e-Governance. CCTNS will operate through the creation of a nationwide networked infrastructure for evolution of IT-enabled state-of-the- art tracking system around “investigation of crime and detection of criminals” in real time, which is a critical requirement in the context of the present day internal security scenario.
The scope of CCTNS
spans all 35 States and Union Territories and covers all Police Stations (approximately 14,000 in number) and all Higher Police Offices (approximately 6,000 in number) in the country. The CCTNS project includes vertical connectivity of police units (linking police units at various levels within the States – police stations, district police offices, state headquarters, SCRB and other police formations – and States, through state headquarters and SCRB, to NCRB at GoI level) as well as horizontal connectivity, linking police functions at State and Central level to external entities. CCTNS also provides for a citizen’s interface to provide basic
services to citizens.
