Police brutality has to be stopped and the force has to work according to its legal capacity, says the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed.

The police chief said this delivering his speech as the chief guest at a special meeting on crime, law and order, organized by the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) at Rajarbagh Police Auditorium on Saturday, said a statement.

Benazir said the police have to be free of any form of corruption if they want to be the police of the general public, as per the press release issued by AIG (media) Md Sohel Rana.

“There is no place for corrupt people in the police force. A police official cannot be involved with narcotics; police has to be drug-free,” said the IGP. 

“We want to get rid of the culture of lobbying for transfers by formulating and implementing realistic transfer and posting policies for police officers and the force,” he said.

The police chief said police officials and members do not want to go outside Dhaka for the sake of their children’s education. 

The IGP talked of an initiative to set up quality educational institutions in  divisional cities outside Dhaka with the aim of resolving this crisis.

He also pledged to ensure quality medical facilities for police personnel in  divisional cities to make police service attractive at the divisional level.

Benazir said the police force has changed in the last three months during the coronavirus crisis.

“Police have secured a place in the hearts of the people. It has gained the unwavering support and trust of the people,” he said.

“The way the police served the people during the Covid-19 pandemic—most of it was not their job. But they did it out of a sense of responsibility,” the police official added.

After the Liberation War, the police have never received the kind of respect that they got in the last three months, Benazir said.

Even people who used to criticize the police at every turn are now supporting the police and speaking on their behalf, he added.
