Bangladesh Battalion (BANBAT-4) deployed in United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has handed over five police boxes to the traffic police of South Sudan.
As part of public welfare activities, the police boxes built with Bangladesh Battalion’s own funds, were handed over to Brigadier General Garmier Mekar, Traffic Police Director of Western Bahr al Ghazal State recently.
Local people including Western Bahr al Ghazal State’s Police Commissioner, Director of Traffic Police and other local officers praised the initiative.
This police box will play a helpful role in carrying out the duties of the traffic police in a very smooth and efficient manner in inclement weather. As a result, it will be easier to control the movement of vehicles, ensure the safety of the road and control the extra crowd on the road.
In addition to operational activities in South Sudan, Bangladeshi peacekeepers risk their lives to save the lives of those fell in road accidents, prepare investigation reports of those killed and injured in road accidents, install traffic lights, review traffic laws and provides administrative assistance to the local traffic police in processing violation reports.
