NEW DELHI || The National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) has launched Police related Citizen centric services on CCTNS platform, an official informed on Thursday. These online services will help Citizens in searching for their loved ones who have gone missing. The service can be accessed through ‘digitalpolicecitizenservices.gov.in’ portal or through a link in the existing ‘Digital Police Portal’.
So far such services are being provided through the state-citizen portals and it is the first time that these are being launched centrally. Director, NCRB, Ram Phal Pawar while addressing the gathering informed that the two citizen services namely ‘Missing Person Search’ and ‘Generate Vehicle NOC’ will now be available online to Citizens.
The Citizens can search for their missing kins against the national database of the recovered unidentified found person/unidentified dead bodies from their homes. This will hugely benefit relatives of missing persons and save them from running around the pillar to post, as all such details including photos are available in Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System and will now be accessible to citizens through this portal at their convenience.
In this user-friendly search, a citizen may enter search criteria in the portal and the system will search it from the available national database across the country and will display the result immediately with photograph and other details.
NCRB and National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC), USA has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to receive information on such material originating from India. NCMEC is a non-profit organization established by the United States Congress. It has a centralized reporting system by which internet service providers across the world or intermediaries like Facebook, youtube, etc. can report about persons who circulate images of child pornography.
