Vice President of India exhorts police forces to skill and equip themselves to deal with cybercrime

New Delhi, July 31: The Vice President, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu today called upon the police forces to be extra sensitive in matters relating to crimes against women. He observed that creating a safe and enabling environment for women is very important to help them grow and attain their full potential.

Addressing the police personnel after presenting Presidential Police Colours to Tamil Nadu Police in Chennai today, Shri Naidu praised Tamil Nadu for having the highest number of women police stations and the second highest strength of women police personnel in the country. Women form half of our population but a lot still remains to be done to provide them equal opportunities on various fronts, he stressed.

Expressing concern over the increasing incidents of cybercrime and other modern-day offences such as online frauds and transboundary crimes, the Vice President exhorted our police forces to skill and equip themselves to deal with these 21st century crimes in an effective and speedy manner.

He appreciated Tamil Nadu Police for establishing a separate Cyber Crime Wing with 46 Cyber Crime Police Stations in addition to various cyber forensic facilities to investigate cybercrime cases on scientific lines. “Upgradation of skills, improvement of infrastructure facilities, and change of attitude of the Police force are key elements in the modernisation of the Police,” he added.

The Vice President also lauded Tamil Nadu Police for an exclusive Idol Wing, first of its kind in the country, to investigate cases of theft or loss of cultural artefacts.

Commending the state police for retrieving ten priceless antique idols from the USA and Australia recently, he said that we must make every effort to preserve our age-old cultural heritage and civilisational values. Referring to rich and glorious cultural heritage of the state of Tamil Nadu, he emphasised the need to preserve it for our future generations.

Describing Tamil Nadu as one of India’s most prosperous and industrialised states, Shri Naidu observed that the role of the police is of paramount importance in a rapidly changing socio-economic environment. “One of the primary reasons behind the economic progress of the State is the role of the state police in maintaining public order and social harmony, which is essential for attracting investment, growth and development in the State,” he added.
