Common Integrated Police Application (CIPA) has been implemented at 128 Police Stations of Delhi.
Police has been included in the NeGP as a response to an ever-increasing threat of terror and ascending crime graph. It addresses the need to improve the efficiency of the police force. One of the major steps in this direction is the creation and sharing of crimes and criminal database. In addition, the MMP also includes personal management and inventory control. However, there are large variations in these functions across the States, which do not allow common development of the processes and consequently the software. The MMP therefore adopts a phased approach towards implementation.
In the first, phase only those functions, which are common across the States, and are driven by the CrPC, are to be attempted. This is being implemented under the Common Integrated Police Application (CIPA) Project. This enables basic primary information, generated at the Police Stations, to be computerized and helped the police officers in the police stations to reduce their paper work thereby bring in efficiency in the police station operations.
