MESSAGE FROM ADDITIONAL INSPECTOR GENERAL

I am immensely pleased to heartily welcome all to the webpage of Bangladesh police.

Originally created to serve the interests of the colonial authority of the far past, Bangladesh Police, now imbued with the spirit of freedom and independence, has come through a paradigm shift and become the symbol of rule of law. The dawn of this new journey was our great war of liberation when, in response to the clarion call of Bangabandhu, father of the nation, the undaunted members of this force chose to be the vanguards of a life-staking armed resistance against the brutal aggression to our beloved motherland. Since then we have been changing everyday in every ways and today policing here is pro-people, proactive, community-oriented, technology based and sensitized to issues regarding human rights, gender and children. Particularly, in the last four and a half years Bangladesh police has undergone radical changes in terms of professional amelioration, capacity building and service delivery, thanks to the personal and initiatives of the Honorable prime Minister in this regard.

Today we are fully committed to upholding the rule of law and ensuring a society safe for all to live and work, pray and play, and for the democracy to prosper and flourish.

We are for the community. So our focus is on building stronger trust with the community, and we consider the responsible members of the community our most potential weapons in the battle against all sorts of chaos and criminality.

I believe Bangladesh police Webpage will open up a new avenue for us to reach our goal. I wish this webpage a grand success.

Sacrifice in 1971 Bangladesh

Under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Bangladesh achieved its independence in 1971. In the dark of March 25, 1971, the Pakistani occupation force slaughtered thousands of innocent Bangalees, prompting the nation to create resistance against them. On this fateful night, the Pakistani military rulers launched the “Operation Search Light” which first hit Rajarbagh police lines where police personnel were in the forefront with their service arms.The invading force had evidently understood that police would be the main obstacle while conducting operation search light and therefore, they attacked the police lines first. According to a statistics, a total of 33,995 police personnel were in service in the then East Pakistan during the Liberation War. Of them, 13,000 denied loyalty to the then government and joined the freedom fight.However, it has been speculated that the figure of police freedom fighters was much higher as around 70 percent of police personnel in some districts joined the war. A government order issued during the period also supported the speculation, saying “The Govt. of East Pakistan, Dacca has been pleased to convey sanction to the creation of the following temporary posts in the East Pakistan police force and deputation thereto, of the officers and men from West Pakistan for a period of 6 months with effect from 1-6-71.” As time passed, each police station turned into a fort of freedom fighters, hoisting Bangladeshi flag in police lines. After directly getting involved in the activities of Mujibnagar government in exile, the police force intensified the Liberation War. The contribution of police force to the independence was mainly divided into two phases — a) the period before March 24, 1971 and b) from March 25 to December 16, 1971.
