Intelligence sharing stressed

Cooperation between police forces vital to curb inter-state crimes



Acharya said that the exchange of criminal intelligence between states would be beneficial in combating trans-border crimes.

Speaking at the inauguration of a one-day conference between the South Zone heads of Crime Branch of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Acharya commended the efforts of the Karnataka CID in taking the initiative to organise the event.

The conference was attended by delegates from Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Goa and Maharashtra, besides senior officers from the State.

The participants discussed several issues ranging from human trafficking and fake currency to cyber crime and non-bailable warrants from other states.

Imperative

The heads agreed that when victims of other states were involved, it was imperative to communicate the details of the case and also facilitate the handing over of the victim.
The conference also touched upon the menace of vehicle thefts, which often involved the perpetrators crossing over to neighbouring states.

Meanwhile, the delegates were taken on a tour of the CID laboratory and the Cyber Crime Police station located in the CID premises. Presentations on software such as the Police IT application software of Karnataka, the finger print identification software from Maharashtra and the intranet communication used by the police in Andhra Pradesh were made.
