Police Week-2022 will begin on January 23 with the theme “Dakkho Police, Shammriddho Desh Bangabandhur Bangladesh”.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to inaugurate the programme virtually. The event will end on January 27. This year four types of medals will be awarded in recognition of bravery, heroic work and service of policemen in 2022 and 2021.

Among them, 106 police personnel who lost their lives in the ‘Coronation War’ will be awarded the highest posthumous medal ‘Bangladesh Police Medal (BPM-Bravery)’.

According to Police Headquarters sources, the police week was supposed to start on January 16. However, the police week has been delayed due to the Deputy Commissioners (DCs) conference.
