Students become ambassadors to curb cyber crime in Nashik

first_imgThe Nashik police has started a cyber crime awareness programme to tackle the increasing number of such incidents. Students and common citizens are being involved as ambassadors to spread awareness of the issue. A cyber lab was opened in August last year and since then the Nashik Police is on a mission to bring such crime to zero. Till now, 20,000 students from nearly 40 schools and colleges have been given lessons on cyber crime.“Our only motto is to control such crimes in the city and safeguard the people, especially students. Nowadays people are so much on internet and social networking sites that they can’t even think when they have become the victim of cyber crime,” said Dr. Ravindra Kumar Singal, Commissioner of Nashik. Out of the 20000 students, 250 have become ambassadors who go at different places and create awareness about the cyber crimes. “Not only schools and colleges but we are also targeting the corporates. I try to attend all the awareness programmes,” adds Singal. The cyber ambassadors are trained by the staff of police commission. After the students and corporate, the Nashik police is planning to involve the families also.A police official said earlier tracking of such cases was tough but now through our cyber cell departments, we can retrieve the details of the accused. “Though parents should not spyon their children, they should aware of their activities and surfing habits on the computer or mobile. If this is not done then their children are at risk of falling victim to cyber crime,” added the official.last_img
