Techno-Legal Centre For Law Enforcement Training In India

Law enforcement in India, just like its counterparts in other jurisdictions of the world, is not very much comfortable with the technology related crimes. In the absence of modernisation of police force in India, cyber crimes are fast evolving. Further in the absence of a strong cyber law the increasing cyber crimes are posing as worst nightmare of Indian police force.

The Information Technology Act 2000 (IT Act 2000) is the sole cyber law of India that has been made powerless by the Information Technology Amendment Act 2008 (IT Act 2008). This coupled with a weak and ineffective cyber security in India encouraged both Indian citizens as well as other countries to take for granted Indian computer systems. Even the crucial ones were found vulnerable and resulted in loss of confidential and strategic information.

In this background, the police force in India is finding it very difficult to cope up with the increasing cyber crimes in India. Perry4Law has launched an information technology training centre for police force of India and other jurisdictions of the World. The centre would train police force in areas like basics of computers, cyber law, cyber forensics, cyber security, telecommunication laws, mobile forensics, etc. The centre would be managed by Perry4Law Techno-Legal Base (PTLB), a premier techno-legal segment of Perry4Law.

The centre also aims at developing and maintaining initiatives like Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) Project of India, National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID), Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), etc.

It is high time for India to invest both in terms of a strong cyber law as well as robust cyber security. Most importantly, the police force in India must be made aware about these crucial fields as without the knowledge of these areas the culprits cannot be punished.
