Directorate of Coordination, Police Wireless to celebrate 70th Raising Day 
The Directorate of Coordination, Police Wireless (DCPW) will celebrate its 70th Raising Day on February 19, 2016. The Directorate came into existence this day in 1946 initially as “Inspectorate of Wireless” and was later accorded the status of Directorate of Coordination (Police Wireless), a subordinate Organization, under Ministry of Home Affairs in 1950. It is entrusted with the responsibility of coordinating for developing and establishing the Police Telecommunication network in the country and also to advise MHA on all Police Telecommunication matters.

The DCPW operates a round-the-clock Inter State Police Wireless (ISPW) Network through its 31 stations in all States capitals/UTs for delivering emergent messages pertaining to law and order. It has an extensive network of Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSATs) spread over the entire country and extending connectivity to all district/state head quarters and National Capital Delhi through its satellite based network namely Police Network (POLNET). This satellite based network has been actively involved in facilitating communication among various State Police/Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs). The Directorate has an established High Frequency (HF) communication network at its HQ and Inter-State Police Wireless (ISPW) stations located in all State capitals and UTs. The DCPW is a nodal advisory body to the Ministry of Home Affairs for the Police Telecommunication in the country and for laying down technical specifications for communication equipment to be inducted in the Police Forces in the Country. It acts as a nodal agency for coordinating various police communication services of States/UTs/ CAPFs. Radio communication security matters for all State/UTs Police and CAPFs are also coordinated by DCPW.
