New Delhi, April 17
Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil has stressed the need for accelerating the process of computerisation of police stations in the country.

Speaking at the Investiture Ceremony of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) here today, he said that proper plans would have to be drawn up for the purpose. He expressed confidence that the Central and state governments would be in a position to spare the necessary funds for the purpose.

Training of police personnel will also be necessary and the facilities available outside the police set-up may also be used for the purpose.

The Home Minister said that proper systems have to be put in place to collect information about crimes from every nook and corner of the country and collate, store, analyse and use it in a scientific manner.

Speaking on the occasion, union home secretary Madhukar Gupta expressed happiness over the fact that NCRB has continued to maintain world-class norms of operations and called upon the organisation to continuously strive for further excellence.

The Home Minister presented the Indian Police Medals for meritorious service to Darwan Singh Sajwan, Joint Assistant Director and Chet Narayan Kumar, retired Deputy Superintendent (Records).

The Khan Bahadur Azizul Haque rolling shield for the top merit holder of the All India Board Examination for Fingerprint Experts for 2006 was given to Ranbir Singh, Sub Inspector, Finger Prints Bureau, Haryana.

The Home Minister also handed over the renewed ISO 9001:2000 Certification, given by the Bureau of Indian Standards, to the Director of NCRB Sudhir Awasthi.

NCRB was established in 1986 with the primary mandate of functioning as a clearing house of information on crime and criminals and collecting and processing crime statistics.
