Itanagar, Jun 20: Insurgency-hit Changlang district in Arunachal Pradesh is all set to go hi-tech in fighting crime as the police is finalizing the modalities to install state-of-the-art Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) with the help of National Informatics Center (NIC).
A high-level district committee meeting in this regard was held at Changlang yesterday in the office of Superintendent of Police (SP) to discuss on the early implementation of the project.

According to Hinda, the CIPA is a central initiative for computerization of police station activities, which aims at automation of all functions carried out at the police station. CIPA software has been designed and developed by the NIC in English with multilingual interface developed for other Indian languages.
