State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) was created on 23.07.1988 vide Home Dept. Resolution No.40464 consisting of the erstwhile PoliceComputerCenter and Finger Print Bureau.

Now, the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System is being implemented throughout the country including Odisha. Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) Project is a centrally sponsored Mission Mode Project under the National e-Governance Plan which aims to fully modernize the Police organizations in the country. CCTNS is intended to ensure that Police maintains all its crime and criminals data in online system and citizens have access to police services online and in a hassle free manner.

In Odisha, CCTNS Project will cover 784 locations, including 581 Police Stations, 110 SDPO/ACP Offices, 36 SP/DCP Offices, 7 Range offices, 1 Railway Range office, 37 Police Control Rooms, Office of the Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch, EOW, STF, State Intelligence Wing, Operations Wing, State Police Head Quarters and other Higher Police Offices of Odisha.

A common Core Application Software (CAS) for the whole Country has been recently developed by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) centrally. The Odisha specific state customization of the above software is currently in progress.
