Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed has pushed for psychological change among the policemen of the country.
"Consciously, you have to stop treating people in a bad manner. Instead, you must show good gestures while interacting with people. Police have to use legal capacity instead of forcing people physically," the IGP urged policemen.
The IGP stated this at a keynote address while exchanging views with sub-inspectors, sergeants and inspectors of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) at Rajarbagh police lines on Tuesday afternoon.
The IGP said, when police treat people positively while providing services, people appreciate it.
"The current pandemic era is a prime example of the attitude of the general public towards the police," Benazir added.
"We are committed to building a corruption-free, transparent and accountable policing system. No police member may be involved in amassing money illegally. The corrupt have no place in Bangladesh Police. The force will be free from bribery and corruption," the IGP vowed.
The IGP said the country's economy is moving fast under the leadership of the prime minister.
"Every sector of the country has improved. Bangladesh Police is also much more advanced than at any time before," said the top police official.
DMP Commissioner Mohammad Shafiqul Islam chaired the event, while Additional Inspector General Md Moinur Rahman Chowdhury, Additional IGP and Special Branch chief Mir Shahidul Islam, Criminal Investigation Department Chief Barrister Mahbubur Rahman, and senior DMP officials were also present.
