The Kerala Police CyberDome is being set up as a hi-tech public private partnership centre for cyber security and handling of cyber crimes at the Technopark in Thiruvananthapuram.

The Cyber Dome also envisages an online office of Technical Experts / Ethical Hackers / Cyber Professionals, who can assist the police in the area of cyber security and cyber crime investigation. This online office would contain a group of specially selected experts who will give assistance / suggestions to the police to tackle the various cyber policing issues cropping up in the cyber world.

The Police Department has called for nominations from Cyber Security Experts / Ethical Hackers / Cyber Professionals to be nominated as ‘Cyber Dome Officers’. All nominations will be scrutinized and based on their professional competency, unblemished background and domain knowledge they will be placed as online officers of CyberDome.

According to Manoj Abraham IPS, Inspector General of Police, “It is reiterated that Cyber dome is a contributory project and so the volunteers are not entitled to any payments whatsoever, now or in the future. Hence persons who have a sense of social responsibility only need to apply. Also persons who are already employed and well settled are preferred.”

They have also called for nominations from interested Software Companies who want to enter into a mutual agreement with CyberDome to develop Policing softwares. The software companies will have to provide their technical experts to assist the police in various fields of crime monitoring, policing the web, assistance in the investigation of cyber crimes, development of new software for police and a host of other areas.

If the software companies are willing to support the Police, as a Company itself, in specific tasks, without any financial costs to the department, then the department can sign separate agreements for specific tasks also.
