PM asks for pro-people policing with professionalism 

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today (Jan 23) asked the police force to work with professionalism and carry out pro-people service to maintain the country's law and order and uphold democracy.

She said: "You have to protect the independence achieved through the 24-year long struggle by the Father of the Nation and in exchange for blood of your predecessors, from all sorts of attacks," she said.

She said this as the chief guest while opening the Police Week-2022 at a function held at Rajarbag Police Line in the city, joining virtually from her official Ganabhaban residence here.

The prime minister said that the police force quickly responds to the people's call through 999 service, adding, "The quick response from the police through 999 has increased people's confidence and belief in the police force."

Sheikh Hasina said her government has been providing all the required modern facilities and transportation alongside imparting training to the police personnel to render quick services to the people.

The premier said purchasing two helicopters for the police is now under process.

She also extended her thanks to the policemen for standing beside with people by risking life during the global Covid-19 Pandemic.

The Police Week-2022 is being observed in the country this year with the theme "Skilled Police, Prosperous Country, Bangabandhu's Bangladesh."

On behalf of the prime minister, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan handed over the police awards in four categories to 230 policemen for their outstanding performance in 2020 and 2021. Seventeen of them were awarded posthumously.
