The motto of the awareness program was: How one can prevent oneself from cyber fraud. Bhubaneswar Police Commissioner SK Priyadarshi, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Prateek Singh and more than five hundred students were present, as stated in a report by ANI

Just one click can change your life. So think before you click was the message given by the police commissioner.

In this regard, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Bhubaneswar took to social media handle X and said, "Prevention is Better than Cure and Cyber Safety for All. Bhubaneswar Police has geared up to welcome "CYRRA" for the Cyber Safety Campaign Odisha 2023. Let's all be part of it because it's a shared responsibility."
