The following four wings
constitute the State Crime Record Bureau in Haryana:
1. FINGER PRINT BUREAU
The Finger-print found on an
object is an authentic proof that there was contact between a person and the
object. There is a stamp of individuality about it. Mother nature has an
inexhaustive store of such finger print designs and no two persons on earth
can have identical finger prints. The State Finger Print Bureau was founded in
Haryana in October, 1972. It started working independently from 1st
October 1974 at Rohtak. It was shifted to Madhuban in 1976. Later it was
merged with the S.C.R.B. Until 1974, Finger Print records of convicted persons
were retained in the Finger Print Bureau, Phillaur (Punjab).
2. COMPUTER WING
The first computer
centre of Haryana Police came into existence in the year 1979. It was located
at Chandigarh under the administrative control of CID. At that stage, it was
more of a data collection centre. Actual computerization started in 1988, when
75 PC-XT computers were procured under the scheme of modernization, 76
computers were purchased in 1989 and computers reached different units in
Haryana Police. In 1994, the Government of India launched the National Crime
Criminal Information System (CCIS) which envisages that police stations
records should be linked to the district level and state level and later at
the national level. The SCRB is also working as a nodal agency for the work of
computerization in Haryana.
Tracing the criminals by
their modus operandi is an aspect of great importance in crime
investigation. The Modus Operandi Bureau, which was initially started under
the CID, was later merged in the S.C.R.B on 1.4.1987. It is rendering useful
assistance in crime investigation.
The Statistical Wing of SCRB consolidates
records relating to theft/recovery of automobiles, fire-arms, cultural
property, passports, counterfeit currency, dacoity/robbery in banks, and
kidnapping of children for begging/ransom etc.
Commando Wing was established in the State
in the year 1988-89 for anti terrorist operational
physical standards were prescribed for recruitment
of the commandos. They are also provided specialized
intensive training at Commando Training School,
Panchkula, after their basic training as constables.
Commandos are trained in the art of self defence;
field craft and tactics; handling of semi

who attain the age of 30 are transferred out
to district police. At present, there is only
one commando battalion; the other battalion
strength has been merged with district police.
