Bhubaneswar Police has suggested schools that cyber security clubs should have one member each from their administration and computer department and three senior students including a girl.

The police believe that cyber security clubs will act as a bridge between them and the students. The police have also planned to form WhatsApp groups in which they will interact with members of cyber security clubs.
Police in WhatsApp groups will share ideas with clubs on conducting awareness programs and quiz competitions related to cyber crimes. DCP Prateek Singh said, “The clubs will help prevent cyberbullying among school students and will also help prevent chats or photos/videos going viral on the media.”

Police will provide posters carrying awareness messages to the schools which they can display while conducting sensitization programs in their premises. Apart from informing us about any cyber crime, the club members can also inform the school staff, students and their family members, the police said.

On Wednesday, representatives of around 100 schools participated in an awareness program on cyber crimes, which was organized at Police Sewa Bhavan in Bhubaneswar. Police Commissioner Soumyendra Kumar Priyadarshi and DCP Singh were present.
According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), there has been a rise in cyber crimes in Odisha. The state police registered 2,037 cyber crime cases in 2021 as compared to 1,931 in 2020 and 1,485 in 2019.
