PM directs police to remain prepared to tackle crimes

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that new crimes are emerging with the advent of advanced technology, asking the police personnel to take necessary preparations to thwart the diversified crimes.

The Prime Minister said this while addressing the police officers of higher ranks at the Prime Minister’s Office on Thursday.

“As the technology advances, new types of crime are emerging. So, our police force should be prepared to deal with them properly,” she said.  

The premier said her government is very careful about the capability of police and has a close eye on the issue.

“Because, if the system of dealing with the crime doesn’t work, then it (the offence) can’t be controlled properly,” she added.

She called the police as people’s friend, saying, “Our police force is now friend of the people”.

She said nowadays people aren’t afraid of police rather they keep confidence in the law enforcement agency.

She added, “Now they (police) have regained their trust of people. The countrymen consider the police as their friend and a place of trust. Police have earned this trust and confidence through their works.”

The premier also asked the police personnel to think the people as their near and dear ones.
