[Featured Resource] The Virtual Police Station

This week’s profiled resource is titled “The Virtual Police Station” and comes to us from the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative. This resource is a training tool for the police and empowerment tool for the public. Created with the cooperation of the Rajasthan Police in India, the Virtual Police Station allows police, civil society and the public to enter a computerized police station to explore each room in 360 degrees and learn the many processes and procedures that are performed daily.

More about The Virtual Police Station:

The Virtual Police Station is as thorough as it is innovative. The rooms that can be explored in our program include the Reception, Station Writer’s Room, Lock Up, Case Property Room, SHO Office and more. A user can click on several items in each of these rooms, such as objects (registers, evidence, police equipment, telephones, etc), police personnel (duty officer, investigating officer, station writer, station house officer, case property officer, etc), and citizens who interact with the police and the justice system (a witness, accused, female victim, male victim, etc).
