Crime in the capital 'under control': DMP Commissioner
Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Khandker Golam Faruq on Monday said that the law and order situation in the capital is quite stable at present and crime is under control.
The law and order situation has improved in the capital because the DMP is working as a team and 'Team DMP' is ready to face any situation in future as well, he said.
The DMP Commissioner came up with the remarks while addressing the monthly crime review meeting for the month of August 2023 at the DMP headquarters on Monday.
The DMP chief also said that following the prevailing laws of the country, all police officers should perform their duties with professionalism to maintain law and order and control crime.
The top officer of the DMP asked the officers to give more importance while executing arrest warrants, investigating theft and dacoity cases, as well as recovering stolen vehicles and drugs.
He also asked them to strive for gaining public trust through public engagement.
About the activities of Beat Policing, the DMP Commissioner said that a close relationship between the people and the police will be developed if the activities of Beat Policing are implemented successfully.
The distance between police and people will decrease and for this, people will be able to inform the police about their problems very easily. Crime control will also be much easier by gathering intelligence through beat policing activities, he added.
During the meeting, the DMP Commissioner awarded various levels of policemen of the DMP in recognition of their good work in maintaining law and order and public safety provisions of Dhaka city.
