Besides, the government has formed several units and ranges, including Industrial Police, Tourist Police, Police Bureau of Investigation, Anti Terrorism-Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime Unit, Metropolitan Unit, Cyber Police Centre and National Emergency Service unit 999, she added.
The premier said the government has also introduced service desk for women, children, senior citizens and people with special needs.
The role of police in curbing militancy, terrorism, smuggling and elimination of drug abuse has brightened the image of Bangladesh in global arena, she said, adding that the brave members of police are playing appreciable role in the peacekeeping operation of the United Nations and they also played a very crucial role in servicing the humanity in facing Covid-19.
The Prime Minister hoped that the members of police would continue to play a leading role in building a smart golden Bangladesh as dreamt by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
