Academy director Aruna Bahuguna told reporters on Thursday that since IPS officers have only a supervisory role, the facility will roll out courses to train officers who actually investigate the cyber crimes. With cyber experts from various agencies and institutions, it will also provide training to personnel of other law enforcing agencies like customs, revenue intelligence and income tax in dealing with the cyber crimes.
According to academy's deputy director H K Kusumakar, the department of electronics and information technology in the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology is funding the centre to the tune of Rs 3.68 crore for two years. The centre is currently designing course curriculum and study material. The course duration will range from one day to two weeks.
