Inspector General of Police Benazir Ahmed on Monday said a strategic plan has been taken up to upgrade Bangladesh Police suitable for a developed country by 2041.
He warned the members of police to stay away from any illegal activity.
“If any police personnel are found involved in any illegal activity, it won’t be tolerated and we do not want to be the news for our bad role," he said.
The IGP was speaking on the second of ‘Police Week’ at Rajarbagh Police Lines as the chief guest.
“Bangladesh Police are determined to provide service to the people of the country and we are working to develop the quality of the organisation. Our tagline should be ‘not a job, only service,” he said.
Talking about drug and militancy issues, Benazir said “The prime minister has announced a zero-tolerance policy about militants, drug and militancy. We will implement the policy.”
