National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB)

About: NCRB was set-up in 1986 to function as a repository of information on crime and criminals so as to assist the investigators in linking crime to the perpetrators based on the recommendations of the Tandon Committee, National Police Commission (1977-1981) and the MHA’s Task force (1985).

Detail: Subsequently, NCRB was entrusted with the responsibility for monitoring, coordinating and implementing the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) project in the year 2009. The project has connected 15000+ police stations and 6000 higher offices of police in the country. On 21st August 2017, NCRB launched National Digital Police Portal. It is a master police portal which caters both to the citizens as well as to the police personnel. It allows police personnel to search for a criminal / suspect on the CCTNS database, besides access to many other police utilities like Cri-MAC, NDSO, CyTrain etc.
