State Police to open cyber crime cell in all district

After weighing the threat of cyber crime, Himachal Pradesh Police is planning to open separate cyber crime cell in every district of the state.

DGP Himachal Pradesh DS Manhas said

“Tackling cyber crime is a great challenge before the Police Department and the department had established a cyber crime cell at the state headquarters and in districts, besides providing specialised training to our officers and other staff in this field.”

In the periodic review meeting at Hamirpur DGP said that Department have segregated the working of the Police Department under two units – crime prevention and inner vigilance unit. While the crime prevention unit would monitor and suggest ways to reduce crime in districts, the inner vigilance unit would monitor and keep an eye on officers of doubtful integrity, both police and from other departments.
