Need to train more officials to prevent, detect cyber crimes: Mumbai Police
Mumbai Police Commissioner Vivek Phansalkar on Wednesday said there was an urgent need to train as many police officials as possible to investigate and prevent cyber crimes.
He was speaking at a training workshop organised for Mumbai Police’s ‘Cyber Commandos’. On the occasion, the police introduced ‘Cyber Commandos’ trained for prevention and detection of cases related to cyber crime and also unveiled a poster of helpline 1930. Addressing the officials who underwent training, Phansalkar in the last two years, there has been an increase in cyber frauds and cases of sextortion, identity theft, phishing and cheating. Such cases lead to both financial and reputational damage, he said. Considering the threat of crime in the cyber space, every head constable working at a police station has to be computer and digital literate, said the senior IPS officer. “In the next phase, the Mumbai Police will train station house officers and other policemen on cyber crime investigation,” he said.
