Protect people’s basic rights, PM tells new police officers

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has asked new officials of the police cadre to put in their best efforts to protect the fundamental and human rights of people.

“It’s my firm belief the young police officials will be engaged in ensuring the overall welfare of people,” she said while addressing the passing-out parade of the 34th BCS batch of assistant superintendents of police (ASPs) at the Bangladesh Police Academy at Sarda in the morning.

Sheikh Hasina directed the new ASPs to uphold the glorious role of the members of the Bangladesh Police played during the Great War of Liberation and to work following the path of their predecessors with patriotism, professionalism and unbound bravery.

She took salute, inspected the parade and distributed medals among the best probationary ASPs.

A total of 150 ASPs, including 26 female ones, passed the course.

The Prime Minister distributed medals among the best police officers of the course.

“We’re working to attain economic emancipation. Law and order must be maintained for ensuring the economic emancipation for any country while maintaining law and order is a precondition to ensure economic development” she said, adding, “So, we’re putting in our all-out efforts to build our police force as a time-befitting one despite our lack of resources.”
