Govt Considers More Special Police Units
Sunday, 31 October 2010

After formation of industrial police, the prime minister has said her government is also considering formation of specialised forces like campus police, marine police and tourism police.

Sheikh Hasina formally launched the much hyped Industrial Police on Sunday.

Hasina said the special police force was launched to maintain law and order in the industries to attract more foreign investments. She was addressing the inaugural ceremony of the new police force at Bangbandhu International Conference Centre.

"The country's law and order depends on the police. They have a lot of responsibilities as the number of police personnel is inadequate compared to the increasing number of people."

The special force, first of its kind in Bangladesh, was created to suppress sudden indiscipline, Hasina added.

"The duty of the force will be to provide security to both the owners and the workers."
