All police personnel to get rank-based training by next year: IGP


Dhaka, Sept 05: All police personnel will be trained on the basis of their ranks by next year in order to boost their skills, the country’s police chief said on Sunday.

Inspector General of Police Dr Benazir Ahmed said this while inaugurating a ‘rank-based’ training program for all members of the police at the Hall of Integrity at the Police Headquarters on Sunday.

He said the training programme has been undertaken at the instruction of the prime minister.

Following the PM’s order training has been organized at least once a year for every police member from constable to additional IG of Bangladesh Police. This will further enhance the skills of police personnel in various fields, the IGP said.

“This year we have arranged for the training of 60,000 police personnel. Next year, training will be organized for each of the 2 lakh 12 thousand police members,” he said.

Dr Benazir Ahmed said there would be separate training courses, modules and trainers for police personnel of each rank. All police personnel from constables to additional IGs will participate in the training, he said.

He said this ‘rank based’ training would be a milestone in building a police force suitable for a modern and developed country by 2041.

Additional IG (HRM) Md. Mazharul Islam gave a welcome speech on the occasion. Additional IGs, heads of various police units in Dhaka and senior police officers were present on the occasion. The heads of all the police units were connected in the virtual ceremony.
