 Cyber Security Division to be formed in Kerala Police: Chief Minister

Sri. Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister, said that the Government is actively considering setting up of a Cyber Security Division in Kerala Police to combat cyber crimes. With the formation of this Division, cyber crimes can be significantly reduced, he added. He was inaugurating the two-day Drone Hackathon organized by the Kerala Police Cyber ​​Dome Division at the SAP Ground at Peroorkada in Thiruvananthapuram.

 Modern Drone technology is used for rescue operations during disasters, agricultural needs and various survey operations. But as technology advances, so does crimes. Drones are widely used to smuggle drugs and weapons. In this context, Kerala Police has set up Drone Forensic Laboratory to study, understand and develop drone technology on its own. The Hackathon will help a long way in developing necessary technology for this. An air show featuring various types of drones was also organized as a part of the inauguration function.

 Sri. V K Prashanth, MLA, presided over the function. Sri. Anil Kant IPS, State Police Chief, Senior Police Officers and Drone technicians were also present.

Sri. Antony Raju, Minister, will be the chief guest at the closing ceremony of the Hackathon on Friday at 4.30 pm.
