Mangaluru: Police in the district are taking the help of technology for aiding them during patrols. The new MCTNS (Mobile Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System) portable scanner has been effectively implemented in all police station limits in Dakshina Kannada for preventing night crime and tracking offenders efficiently.
In addition to the earlier practice of interrogating suspects, now police can collect their fingerprints to ascertain their criminal antecedents, if any, during night patrols. The biometric data is used by sophisticated software to find matches in the database for quickly identifying persons with previous run-ins with the law.
Police said the system is already being used in the district effectively, increasing the efficiency with which persons with criminal antecedents are traced and precautionary measures are taken.
District police sought the public to cooperate with them in the process.
