History has been created by the launching of POLICE IT, comprehensive police management application software. Bangalore is one of the premier IT hubs recognized globally and is also the capital city of Karnataka. This being the case, it is desirable that the government agencies also reap benefits of the IT resources available in the city. Over the years IT industry in Bangalore has been contributing their expertise to the implementation of e-initiatives and IT projects in different departments. Today, we have reached a stage where technology provides answers to most of our requirements professional or otherwise. It would be a near impossibility to meet the demands of the public for providing effective services without the use of appropriate technology. Technology in the field of communication is growing at a fast pace. The need of the hour for any organization is to have information readily available and the analytical tools to make a sense out of it, for the purpose required. This being the case,there is every need for the Police department which relies so much both on data/information and effective communication to use the technology optimally in its day to day functioning. Karnataka Police department had the vision and correct initiatives were taken at the right time. The steps taken on that day has yielded fruitful results today in the form of “Police IT”. Karnataka has been the lead state in implementing the IT initiatives in the country and with this launch of Police IT, we can certainly maintain our lead.Lot of impetus has been given both at the central and the state level to modernize the Police forces and given the scenario of Naxalism and terrorism this is certainly the need of the hour. State government has been supporting the police department in implementing the IT initiatives. Adopting new innovations in the Information Technology and adapting it to the specific needs of the Police would certainly help

At the end of the day any application or the technology should fulfill the expectations of the general public. This being the case, the department has taken the right steps in taking technology right to Police Station and indirectly to the people. It is a need of the hour in the modern world to have information at the finger tips which is extremely critical to the police department. A robust communication network both reliable and secure is required to meet the present day challenges. Police IT is definitely an answer for quite a few of the requirements and would provide the backbone for what we call the value added services. It is a comprehensive software application which covers all the functionalities of the department and has a spread over every single unit of the department. It aims at making the police a near paperless office. The software is the result of enormous development effort for more than five years both by Wipro and also the SCRB officers and staff as was explained in the presentation. KSP Network has been created and Data Center upgraded to enable the Police IT application to be accessed by all the units. Police IT comprises of twelve modules. Amongst these smaller modules Motor Transport, Armed Reserve and Wireless are being put into use today. As indicated in the resentation I expect that the remaining modules would be rolled in a phased manner, as planned.Crime, Law and Order and Traffic are the important modules since it would have more impact on the public. The Police IT application enables and ensures faster communication, effective management of records, optimize the utilization of resources, improves efficiency, saves time and money, brings in accuracy, transparency 2

At this juncture it would be apt to note that the creation of a National Police IT Center in Bangalore would help in capacity building and enabling Research and Development and setting standards and help in uniformly implementing it. This would help sustain Police IT and all our IT initiatives for all time to come and can also provide a resource base for the rest of the country. The Concept Paper for the same has also been developed and is available on this Website. The end user is the most critical in the Police Supply Chain Management where best of the projects fail with most predictable consistency. The usage of Police IT would be litmus test. A disengagement plan to for doing away with the paper records should run in consonance with the deployment of the software which would provide the ease of usage to help facilitate the desired usage. 3
