He also addressed an event marking Police Week 2019
President Abdul Hamid has urged the police to serve the public with integrity— imbued with the spirit of the Liberation War—to garner their trust.
He made the call at an event marking Police Week 2019 held at the Bangabhaban on Wednesday afternoon.
Abdul Hamid said: “Any person who comes to you to receive a service should not be harassed; instead, you should ensure that the person gets the necessary services and suggestions.
“You will have to keep up your efforts to become service-oriented and people-friendly by acquiring the public’s trust; that is the hope of the country’s people.”
The president added: “One of the key elements of good governance for the development and progress of the country is the proper enforcement of the law. You must continue to play a responsible role to maintain the country's internal security and establish a safe society.”
He said: “Your main responsibilities are: maintaining internal security, protecting people's lives, establishing the rule of law, preventing terrorism and crime, plus upholding human rights and democratic values.”
