A system will be provided to manage and automate the process of evidence collection from the scene of crime, hospital etc. to sending the exhibits/case property to FSLs after coding, subsequent work allotment, final Analysis Recording and reporting.
Challenges in Current System
The current system is manual wherein the FIR number is attached to the sealed evidences collected and sent to FSL for further processing, where it is manually allocated to individuals for analysis and reporting. Due to this certain challenges are being faced. These include the following:
- The process is susceptible to corruption as the details of the FIR are attached with the sealed evidences and the same can be used to track the evidences by people who should not be getting such information.
- The work is allocated manually and is subjective in nature which may ignore the division/field requirements and the work load on each person.
- If there are delays in the completion of analysis of the evidences, it is a cumbersome task to identify the cause of delay
Objective of the New System
The system is therefore being proposed to track the process of evidence collection to final publishing of reports. The system would be developed with the following objectives:
- Automate the process of Evidence flow from collection to final analysis recording and report publishing.
- Remove the use of FIR/PMR/MLR etc. numbers and incorporate Bar Codes so that data and current stage of processing cannot be leaked out to unauthorized sources.
- Automate the process of work allotment so that work load amongst employees can be managed and favoritism and mal intentions can be removed from the system.
- Real time tracking the movement and status of evidences collected from various crime scenes in the state to improve efficiency of staff and transparency in system.
- Real time reporting and notifications related to each case which will remove unnecessary delays from the system.
