Eagle BD Police application, currently running with Shahbagh and Ashulia Police Stations on the trial basis and set to be introduced in 50 police stations under the jurisdiction of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), has received the national ICT award from the BASIS.

State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak handed over the award at a ceremony at a private TV station on Sunday.

Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi was present as the chief guest at the ceremony organised by BASIS.

This digital application service will provide security for women and children in the quickest possible time.

A couple of taps on the app of one’s phone is enough for the nearest police officer to rush to the victim’s location and rescue her. Communications System Limited (CSL) prepared this app under the guidance of Bangladesh Police Headquarters.

After covering DMP area, Eagle BD Police will be introduced at all the police stations across the country to ensuring safety of women and children.
