Cox's Bazar's police must provide full protection for Local and foreign tourists otherwise it is defamed the nation as well as tremendous harm for the economy.
Police should get modern training with modern arms with a sincere and polite manners.
Police will not involve in the bribe if the pay scale is increased. This is the main issue. This is saying from my own experiences.
I am born and grown up in Cox's Bazar currently resident in Qatar.
