State Crime Record Bureau   top.gif (1496 bytes)
In order to render effective, accurate and prompt assistance to the investigating agencies, a dire need was felt to set up an organization and build up a system to keep up-to-date records of crime, criminals and their activities. Towards this aim, the State Crime Record Bureau was carved out of CID in 1986. Presently State Crime Record Bureau is Headed by Sh. O.P. Singh, IPS Director/SCRB, Madhuban, Haryana.
The following four wings constitute the State Crime Record Bureau in Haryana:


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).


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 were distributed among 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.

3. M.O.B.

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   top.gif(1496 bytes)
The Commando Wing was established in the State in the year 1988-89 for anti terrorist operational requirements.

Higher 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 automatic weapons and explosives.

In order to keep this force young, commandos 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.
