Members of the Detective Branch (DB) of police are getting new uniforms comprised of Quick Response code (QR) with identities and confidential numbers of Detective Branch and the Dhaka Metropolitan Police shortly.
The move has been taken as criminals in guise of detective police commit different crimes in the capital and elsewhere in the country.
About the fake DB uniform, DMP Additional Commissioner (DB) Harun –or-Rashid said, “The previous uniform of DB police could be copied very easily. It could be made anywhere.”
In guise of DB police, fake DB members use toy pistols and handcuffs while committing robberies and other crimes. So, the image of the DB police is being undermined.
As part of the digitalisation process of the police force, the higher authorities of the Dhaka Metropolitan Intelligence Police have added QR codes to the uniform of DB police, Harun said, replying to a query.
In this, by scanning the QR code attached to the DB police uniform through mobile phone apps, complete correct information will be available.
Harun said, “DB's QR code has three things attached. There will be secret numbers, detective police monograms and colored logos. Also, the new uniform of the detective police will have some more secret features which we are not publishing.”
This new jacket cannot be duplicated. DMP DB's new jacket has the first secret number, Quick Response Code or QR code system in combination with Intelligence Department and Dhaka Metropolitan Police.
The new jacket uses colorful logos of DB and Dhaka Metropolitan Police, which are easily visible. The night light on the jacket will make the presence of DB police visible from a distance.
The new DB jacket features various pockets, allowing DB members to keep essential notebooks, pens and papers safe during expeditions.
