Update : 29 Feb 2024, 16:11

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said new crimes are emerging with the advent of advanced technology, asking the police personnel to take necessary preparations to thwart the diversified crimes.

“As the technology advances, new types of crime are emerging. So, our police force should be prepared to deal with them properly,” she said while addressing the police officers of higher ranks at Prime Minister’s Office.  

The premier said her government is very careful about the capability of police and has a close eye on the issue.

“Because, if the system of dealing with the crime doesn’t work, then it (the offence) can’t be controlled properly,” she added.

She called the police as people’s friend, saying, “our police force is now friend of the people”.

 She said nowadays people aren’t afraid of police rather they keep confidence in the law enforcement agency.

She added, “Now they (police) have regained their trust of people. The countrymen consider the police as their friend and a place of trust. Police have earned this trust and confidence through their works.”

The premier also asked the police personnel to think the people as their near and dear ones.

She said: “In any work place, you (police) should always consider the countrymen, whether they are women, men or children, as near and dear ones and serve them.”
