Police being built as a world-class force: Home Minister

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said that the Bangladesh Police are being developed as a world-class force and the efforts will continue.

The minister said this while addressing as the chief guest at an exchange meeting with senior police officials at Bangladesh Police Auditorium in Rajarbagh, Dhaka on Thursday night at the concluding session of the 5th day of Police Week 2022.

He said the police are becoming the people's police day by day.

"Apart from the training, Bangladesh Police stands by the people in all possible sectors, the way the police have served the people during the Covid pandemic is truly unprecedented.

"We want to make Bangladesh Police a world class police force," he said.

The minister said that the way terrorism emerged in the country in the recent past, the police have also performed their duty at the risk of their lives.

“You have seen the killings and terrorism carried out in the country in the name of anti-independence group movement in 2013,” he said.

Mentioning that Bangladesh Police has become a 'role model' in suppressing militants, the Home Minister said that the country has become militant-free as a result of sincere efforts of police.

In order to increase the capacity of the police, various specialized units including Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC), Anti -Terrorism Unit (ATU) has been set up, he added.

"The members of the police force will perform their duty with more patriotism in the future as they are doing now", the minister hoped.

"The logical demands of the police officers that we can meet from our ministry will be met soon. We will talk to the prime minister about the demands that need to be consulted", he concluded.
