Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police launched a two-day workshop at its headquarters in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday in collaboration with UNICEF to provide training to its staff on cracking cyber crime cases.

The two-day workshop - ‘Training on Cyber Crime Investigation for Police Officers’- aims to provide training to police personnel of all police stations and outposts under the jurisdiction of Commissionerate Police, informed sources.

At least 50 officers of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack UPD participated in the workshop today, while 50 more cops will undertake the training programme tomorrow, informed Commissioner of Police, YB Khurania, who was present in the training programme.

“With the growing use of internet, many people are using different social media sites and becoming targets. The victims register complain in various police stations and outposts and the workshop will provide training to the officers to investigate such cases and identify the accused at the earliest,” said Khurania.

“The pace, in which the cyber space is being misutilised by the people, is a big challenge for police officers. It will help investigators to gain expertise in dealing with these cases,” said DGP RP Sharma.

“The workshop is an initiative of the Commissionerate Police and is organised in collaboration with UNICEF. It will help in qualitative investigation of cyber crime cases,” added Sharma.
