NAGALAND POLICE INFORMS ON ENROLMENT OF CYBER VOLUNTEERS
The Nagaland Police through a press release stated that in order to tackle and mitigate the menace of cybercrime and to ensure a clean safe cyber space, the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre (I4C) of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has developed a Cyber Crime Volunteer Framework which enables the participation of citizens in tackling the cyber crime menace. The Cyber Crime Volunteer Framework aims to bring together the citizens having passion to serve the society.
It stated that the Cyber Crime Volunteer Framework can be accessed through the “National Cybercrime Reporting Portal (NCRP)” (www.cybercrime.gov.in). Any Indian citizen can get himself associated by registering on the NCRP as a “Cyber Volunteer” by clicking on the “Register as a Volunteer” tab and following the instructions given. The Volunteers will serve as a bridge between the Law Enforcement Agencies of State and the Citizens and help in spreading awareness amongst the people. In view of the rapid increase in cybercrime and use of emergent technologies by cybercriminals, it becomes imperative that the general public be made aware of the modus operandi of the cybercrimes. The Volunteers will serve as a means to spread awareness amongst the general public, to reach out to the public through various social media platforms or any other means of communication, it added.
