The Digital Police portal is a Smart Policing initiative of Ministry of Home Affairs to provide services to citizens and aid efficient Police investigations.
Digital Police Portal will enable citizens to register FIRs online and the portal will initially offer seven Public Delivery Services in 34 States & UTs, like Person and Address Verification e.g. of employees, tenants, nurses etc, permission for hosting Public Events, Lost & Found Articles and Vehicle theft etc. Besides, the portal will enable restricted access to law enforcement agencies on topics such as Antecedent Verification and make assessment of FIRs.
This portal is a platform for Citizens to file crime related complaints online and seek antecedent verification of prospective employees (including for domestic help, drivers etc.), tenants or for any other purpose. Citizens can also seek certification of their own antecedents.
The portal consolidates data of current and past Crime occurrences across the country. This data has information pertaining to persons accused or convicted in criminal cases along with associated information such as property stolen/recovered, missing persons, recovered/unidentified dead bodies and so on. This information would help expedite Police investigations to solve crime as well as to provide antecedent verification services to citizens.
The portal also generates various thematic reports of trends of incidence of crime across the country to facilitate policy analysis and interventions. To illustrate, reports such as those pertaining to crime against women & children, societal trends of crimes, patterns of crime involving groups belonging to a particular age or educational qualification and so on, crimes which are more prevalent in certain areas, can be generated from data in this portal.
The Digital Police portal can be accessed at https://digitalpolice.gov.in/ .
