You would be thrilled to know that approximately 432 of the 660 successful trainees at the Police Training College in Andra Pradesh are women. To add to it, the recent passing out parade at the college has revealed a batch of tech-savvy constables.
According to a report by The Hindu, Andhra Pradesh boasts of being the most advanced state in India when it comes to the adoption of e-governance tools like the Electronic Computerized Operations for Police Services (e-COPS) for effective policing.
The DGP expressed concern over the increase in the incidents of cyber-crime and quoted the misuse of the OTP as the most common crime. Thus the state has taken a further leap as the new batch of constables here consists of graduates and postgraduates in computer science.
Vemula Rojani is among the new tech-savvy batches of the police constables. She hails from a remote Kommuru village, near Kakumanu in neighbouring Guntur district and is a post-graduate in computer applications. In an interaction with The Hindu, she shared, “I was thrilled getting trained on Crime and Criminal Network Tracking Systems (CCNTS) which is all set to revolutionalise crime detection.” She also said how the ones from an IT background are in an advantageous position when it comes to handling the e-governance tools as the State police have taken to paperless policing.
Another trainee constable B. Lalitha worked as a lecturer before joining the uniformed service and is a post-graduate in Mathematics. She said, “I want to do my part to provide relief to victims.”
Inspection General (Training) N. Sanjay shared that as many as 100 of these trainees had engineering degree while 56 others had completed post-graduation. This indicates towards a new era in policing which certainly is the need of the hour.
