Police have again come up with a host of demands although many they made earlier still remain unimplemented.
This time they sought creation of 413 new posts, including 17 posts of additional inspector general, among quite a few placed before Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at a meeting on Monday as part of Police Week 2020.
The prime minister assured them of meeting their logical demands.
According to the meeting sources, Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Mohammad Shafiqul Islam demanded creating new posts in four ranks, including eight Grade-1 officers.
AKM Shahidul Haque, former inspector general of police (IGP), told The Business standard that the demands they raised are logical.
"If these posts are created, the frustration of police members will go," the former IGP added.
According to police headquarters, the appointment of 230 superintendents of police, who were promoted from the position of additional superintendents of police in November 2018, is still in limbo with not enough empty posts available for them in the department.
Khandoker Lutful Kabir, the Khulna Metropolitan Police commissioner, demanded an interest-free car loan facility for police officials like those that other government officers enjoy.
He also urged for constructing residential houses for unit commanders.
Amena Begum, additional commissioner of Chattogram Metropolitan Police, sought to raise the number of female police personnel from 15,000 to 30,000.
She also demanded building at least two training centres, especially for policewomen.
Amena Begum drew the prime minister's attention to the proposed "Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Specialised Police Training Centre" at Rupganj, Narayanganj.
Speaking to The Business Standard, Amena Begum said, "We need more female police members to ensure better service."
She also said separate residential dormitories for female police personnel should be set up in every training centre.
Barrister Harun Ar Rashid, deputy inspector general of Mymensingh range, reiterated their demand for posting police officers at foreign embassies for security and legal support to Bangladeshi expatriates.
He also demanded posting police officers at the offices of the organisations like the Anti-corruption Commission, Department of Narcotics Control, Bangladesh Road Transport Authority and Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority for better coordination and integration in relevant matters.
