'We now feel proud of our police members seeing their commitment to civic services'

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Thursday said the police are gradually being transformed into a people-friendly force by standing beside the nation to tackle any bad situation.

“Whenever people face any disaster and helplessness situation, Bangladesh Police have stood by them. 

“The pro-active role of the police in tackling the coronavirus situation and suppressing militancy, reminds us of Bangabandhu's ‘janata’s police (people's police)’,” he said.

The minister said: “Bangladesh Police is slowly and truly turning into Bangabandhu's 'people's police' and the prime minister's 'people-friendly police'. 

“We now feel proud of our police members seeing their commitment to civic services.”

Asaduzzaman made the remarks at a views-exchange meeting at the Police Headquarters in Dhaka with Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed in the chair.

The meeting discussed the ways to further expedite the beat-policing activities in expanding the civic services to remote areas.

It also discussed the prime minister's directive to set up “police medical services” at the divisional and district levels to ensure healthcare of more than 200,000 members of the Bangladesh Police so that they can reach intensive policing services at the doorsteps of the people.

The meeting focused on taking a project to set up high-quality schools for the children of police personnel at the divisional level.
