Step up police-citizens cooperationSpeakers tell police-training programme in Rajshahi→ STAFF CORRESPONDENT
 RAJSHAHI: A five-day-long training for police personnel on community-based policing began on Sunday in the city with a call to boost cooperation between citizens and police for the greater interest of public safety.

The programme aims to eliminate communities’ longstanding mistrust in police.

USAID and the Asia Foundation jointly organised the training programme at Bangladesh Police Academy (BPA) at Sardah.

A total of 40 police inspectors and sub-inspectors from Rajshahi and Rangpur range are taking part in the training.

BPA Principal Nayem Ahmed as the chief guest inaugurated the opening ceremony of the programme which was also attended by BPA SP (admin) Golam Rasul and SP (academy) Nahid, director of Community-Based Policing programme Shanna O’ Reilly, Deputy Programme Director Mir Rakib Ahsan and programme officer Golam Faruque.

The participants said such training would usher in scope for promoting communication between citizens and police, making strategic planning to tackle crime and developing problem-solving skills.

The material development of a country largely depends on a sound security policy, they observed.

Terming the community-based policing a new and timely concept from the country’s perspective, the discussants emphasised institutionalising the move to promote public security in the society.

Earlier, under the police-training project, a total of 380 police inspectors and sub-inspectors of 19 batches from Rajshahi and Rangpur range received training conducted by officials of The Asia Foundation and the US police force.

Of them, 40 inspectors and sub-inspectors have been selected for the five-day training.

After completion of the training programme, they will provide training on community-based policing to other police officials across the regions, sources said.

The Asia Foundation has been promoting community-based policing activities in Bogra, Jessore and Matharipur districts since 2004.
