Cuttack: Odisha Police CID, CB in collaboration with ICICI Bank organized a two days’ workshop on ‘Bank frauds – Prevention and Investigation’ for Police officers of Commissionerate Police and Central Range as a part of capacity building exercise. Thirty-five officers from the field and officers from Crime Branch attended the workshop.
Since crime like ATM fraud, Credit Card fraud, UPI fraud and other various online transactional frauds are on rise, an urgent need was felt for capacity building at cutting edge level of Police Station to handle such type of offences. The workshop aimed at training the officers in the Police Stations level to investigate such type offences effectively.
ADGP CID CB SK Priyadarsi inaugurated the workshop in presence of IGP CID CB, SP, CID, CB and senior officers of ICICI Bank from Mumbai and Bhubaneswar. He urged all the field officers to make effective utilization of this two days training module so that the bank fraud cases can be prevented and detected effectively at the PS level.
It is proposed to conduct such workshops across the State at the Range Headquarters level in due course.
