Hyderabad: With the District Crime Record Bureau (DCRBs) falling short of expectations in the collection of data, Director General of Police (DGP) Anjani Kumar has taken the initiative to make it function like a professional body.
The DCRB in each district and commissionerate is supposed to collect, collate and analyse crime related data. Telangana police have launched a drive to modernise the vertical to help streamline the functions of the DCRBs.
"A day-long workshop would be held in the first week of March for all DCRB inspectors. This will be facilitated by the state crime record bureau," Anjani Kumar said. The district office is ridden with problems like dearth of facilities and untrained staff.
"Fine-tuning of reports on a daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, half yearly and annually will be done using upgraded technology. Each DCRB in-charge will be imparted specialised training," the DGP said.
In what all ways they can aid and assist investigators and law order officers in the field is a major objective, he said.
