As a special speaker, Rajesh Kumar, CEO of Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Center of the Union Home Ministry, gave training to police officers regarding prevention of cyber crimes and providing quick assistance to the victims. 700 officers of DSP and above were present in the workshop. DSPs, ASPs, SPs, DIGs and IGs of the field were present through online medium and all the officers up to the level of ADG, IG, DIG, AIG and DSP posted at the headquarters were also present in the conference hall of the Police Headquarters.

Lack of knowledge among victims is a problem

DGP Sudhir Kumar Saxena spoke about the challenges faced by the police to control cyber crime. He said that the police face multiple challenges in the field of cyber. These challenges include new methods adopted by criminals, high number of cyber crimes, geographical problems like the accused running away to another district after committing a crime in one district, lack of resources to control cyber crime, lack of special training and experts at the district level, etc. Apart from these, the biggest challenge is to know how to provide quick help to the victim. It is necessary to overcome these challenges. He said that lack of knowledge among victims is also a big problem, even though many policemen are not fully aware of what to do to control cyber crime. For this, it is necessary that all officers stay on the same platform and know what to do actively. He said that it is necessary for all the SPs of the district to provide such training to the lower level so that the common people suffering from cyber crime can feel relief. The DGP directed to appoint a nodal officer in every district to control cyber crime.
