PM asks police to take preparations to tackle newer crimes 

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today (Feb 29) said new crimes are emerging with the advent of advanced technology, asking the police personnel to make necessary preparations to thwart the diversified crimes.

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

The premier was addressing the police officers of higher ranks at Prime Minister’s Office.  

She also 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.

She said: “In any work place, you (police) should always consider the countrymen, whether they are women, men or children, as near and dear ones and serve them.”
