The Odisha police today launched its ambitious ‘e-FIR’ system where the complainants can submit their complaints online.
Now citizens and residents of state can register complaints with police without having to visit the police stations physically.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched the online citizen portal – https://citizenportal-op.gov.in at a public awareness function organised by State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) of the state police.
“There is no need to visit any police station or higher police officers. The citizens can log on directly to the citizen portal and submit online complaints to the police stations through internet,” Mr. Patnaik said.
By browsing the website, people can avail services like lodging of complaints, request for FIR copy, verification of tenants, applying for procession licence, permission for protest/strike, character certificate request, employee verification, request for lost property and complain about missing persons.
The project will cover 581 police stations, 37 police control rooms and 109 SDPO/DSRP/ACP offices in the state. It also includes 36 police district offices, 8 range offices including IG Railway office, police commissionerate and state police headquarters. It also covers the HRPC, Director Intelligence, IG Operations, Special Armed Police, Economic Offences Wing, Special Task Force, CID-Crime Branch, State Forensic Science Laboratory and 44 District Training Centres including Computer training centres at Biju Patnaik State Police Academy, Police Training College in Augul and six Battalions.
