CM Launches Virtual Police Station

To reduce human interface with government offices, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik yesterday launched a virtual police station, in addition to two more transformational projects of the Odisha Police. The two other projects include Road Accident Case Documents Module and Medico Legal Opinion System, as per an official statement.

Patnaik, during the launch event, reiterated his government’s commitment to providing citizen-centric governance under the 5-T model. He is confident that such initiatives will go a long way in reducing the need for citizens to visit police stations as one can now directly lodge FIR online.

“This is the first transformation project under 5T initiative which the police department is going to implement. One of the main objectives under the 5T is to reduce the necessity for the public to go to government offices. The Virtual Police Station that has been inaugurated today is a huge step in this regard,” said Patnaik.

The Virtual Police Station is an online mechanism established at the State Crime Records Bureau in the state capital. It will help citizens to register an FIR online in unknown motor vehicle theft cases.

The Road Accident Case Documents Module is a web-based application that will aid insurance companies or the victims in downloading the necessary documents like FIR, final form, spot map, MVI report, inquest, post-mortem report, driving license, registration certificate among others.

Meanwhile, the Medico Legal Opinion System is helpful to both the police and the medical professionals where the police can submit requisitions online for medical examination of victims, read a statement.
