serve people

MNA National Desk: The police must serve people with more dedication and friendliness because that is how they can win people’s trust, President Md Abdul Hamid has said.

Addressing a programme at the Bangabhaban on Wednesday to mark the Police Week 2018, Hamid said: ‘People come to you when they are in trouble. So you must thrive as a people-friendly force in order to fulfil their expectations.’

‘The rule of law is very important in the democratic state and society. Police play the key role in carrying out these duties. So you have to remain steadfast while performing your duties neutrally maintaining democratic values and human rights,’ the President said.

‘You have to be particularly cordial so that every service-seeker can get service uninterruptedly from you,’ he said.

Bangladesh Police should be established as a service-oriented and people-friendly organisation which is people’s expectation, he also added.

Home Minister Asaduzaman Khan, secretary of Public Security Division Mostafa Kamal Uddin, IGP AKM Shahidul Hoque were also present in the occasion.
