Police IT

Police IT is the flagship project of the Karnataka State Police aimed at digitizing all the processes involved in policing from basic functions like Crime and Order maintenance and traffic to ancillary functions like police motor transport and training. Police stations, Circle office, sub-divisional police offices, district police offices, campus networks at COP, CID, Chief office and other offices of special units; the software comprises 12 modules over which MIS is overlaid to support different workflows and their interdependence in regular policing. It has identified 64 end users who have different roles in the day to day policing work and user interfaces catering to their individual needs have been created; the software could generate 417 different reports which help in supervision the ultimate aim being to support the executive in policy making saving lots of time in surveying and paper work. The software is in the verge of integration with seven other legacy systems in different departments of the Karnataka Government so that the whole of policing could go digital in the days to come.

Several initiatives have been introduced in the past to leverage IT in police functioning. Some of these include central government initiated programs such as the NCRB-led CCIS and CIPA, State-led initiatives such as e-COPS in Andhra Pradesh, Thana Tracking System in West Bengal, CAARUS in Tamil Nadu and HD IITS in Gujarat. In 2008 CCTNS was conceived as a Mission Mode Project sponsored by the Government of India under the National e-Governance Plan to provide a comprehensive integrated application platform and a nationwide networked environment for sharing real time crime and criminal information across more than 15000 Police stations, nearly 6000 higher offices of the country. Since all these systems were standalone in nature covering only processes regarding Crime in general, a strong need was felt to create a comprehensive system supporting all the police requirements in the state and the Karnataka state police has come up with Police IT as its ERP for policing; the reports generated and the workflows included are designed considering the following objectives Help executive in Planning by easy access to information and real time statistics generation Optimum Staffing of men by deploying them for core tasks Effective Direction and Control by higher offices Improved Coordination between various offices Customized Reporting by generation of a wide range of reports Reduction in paper work and manual register maintenance The Police IT software is built on.

NET 2.0 framework on Windows 2008 Enterprise Server. Database interface has been built using ADO. NET. Data storage is UNICODE based resulting in comprehensive support of Kannada, the official language of the state. Reports have been developed using transmission is in Adobe PDF Document. Database layer is developed using MS SQL 2005. MPLS is used to connect the major LANs at District Police Office, Commissioner of Police, Crime Investigation Department, Chief's Office etc. through a 2-4 Mbps MPLSnetwork to the State Police Data Center at Madiwala. VPNoBB connects all other locations inclusive of all police stations with a 512- 2048kbit/s bandwidth to the State Police Data Center. A central aggregation bandwidth of 155 Mbps, fiber optic MPLS connects the Data Center to the whole state; the Police IT software application has been divided into 12 modules with different workflows with the facility of exporting data across modules along with the possibility of generating reports with information across different modules.

The core functions of policing are incorporated in Traffic modules. The three modules namely Finance and Stores provide the administrative support required for the department. Armed, Motor Transport and Training modules provide the ancillary support and the Wireless and the FSL are technical modules; the functionalities of these modules are achieved from inception till conclusion in each case by providing users at different levels in hierarchy with different rights to update and supervise by role based access. The whole application in its journey towards a paperless office helps the police, a documentation intensive department do away with hundreds of records the maintenance of, both manpower intensive and time consuming; this module facilitates the collection of detailed information about the history of the crime and criminals and assists in investigation process. It allows for capturing of crime data from the time of registration of First Information Report and monitors the case after conviction.

The workflow for crime process starts with registration of First Information Report which can be done by an SHO and the case can be investigated by him on his own or assigned/transferred to another investigating officer. In property offences, details of property have to be entered and classification of crime is required for report generation at point of time under different heads; the investigating officer starts a case diary detailing the progress of the case. The Investigating Officer, on completion of the investigation files the charge sheet or final report in the court of jurisdiction. Court progress of these cases are noted till disposal and on disposal, if the accused is convicted, conviction memo is prepared and the case may go for appeal; the application captures all the details in each of these processes under different components of the crime module like FIR, Case Assignment, C
