Director General of Police (DGP) Datta Padsalgikar has instructed all police stations across Maharashtra to scrap the manual police station diary entry system and instead submit it online under Crime and Criminal Network Tracking System (CCTNS).

Pune: Director General of Police (DGP) Datta Padsalgikar has instructed all police stations across Maharashtra to scrap the manual police station diary entry system and instead submit it online under Crime and Criminal Network Tracking System (CCTNS).
 
The order was issued on November 19 after it was observed that even though the CCTNS was launched in the State on October 15, 2015, many police stations staff used to write in the station diary (general diary) and then did the entry in the CCTNS.
 
The top cop issued the directives after receiving reports of some police stations that were transmitting the data to Crime and Criminal Network Tracking System after taking manual notes on papers.

The DGP has ordered that there is no need of doing same work twice and instead a printout of the station diary entry should be taken at midnight for the previous day’s entries and kept in police station’s record.

What is CCTNS?

  • Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) aims at creating a comprehensive and integrated system for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of policing by adopting the principle of e-Governance and creation of a nationwide networking infrastructure.  
  • CCTNS helps the police get all information about a criminal at the click of a mouse from anywhere in the country. In Maharashtra, there are 1,691 police stations and other offices connected to one another.
