Jammu, March 30 (IANS): The Jammu and Kashmir Police CID has launched a portal for citizens to report cases and information about criminal, illegal or suspicious activities in their neighborhood, officials said on Tuesday.
The portal, managed end-to-end by the CID, is a key initiative for preventing crime and enhancing peace and security in Jammu and Kashmir. The portal can be accessed at the URL: https://cid.jk.gov.in
“Through this portal, citizens can now report information about criminal, illegal or suspicious activity in their neighborhood. The portal also allows citizens to share information anonymously,” police said.
“CID records every instance of threat or intimidation towards any person directly or indirectly (by phone call, WhatsApp message, email or social media or poster or web portal or any other mode).”
Police said citizens are asked to report any bullying, preferably with details such as the date and time of the phone call, the threat conveyed, the phone number, including the virtual number used by the criminal, the application used, etc.
“It is also helpful if the criminal’s voice or conversation is recorded, which the CID will obtain separately to compare with the voice library to identify the criminal,” police said.
“The portal should thus play an active role in policing their neighborhood and help build a safer society.
The portal also has a function to search for information on the progress of passport and service checks.
