Rajshahi Metropolitan Police (RMP) sought all-out support of the ward councillors of Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) to combat crimes in the metropolis, reports BSS.
“All-out support from the ward councillors and the community is very important to free the society from all sorts of crimes including extremism, terrorism and drug-addiction,” said Humayun Kabir, commissioner of RMP, while addressing a view-sharing meeting with the ward councillors at RMP Headquarters in the divisional city on Saturday.
He said: “We are committed to making the society free from crimes. But, police alone cannot do the job without community support.”
Additional Commissioner Suzaetul Islam and Deputy Commissioners Tanvir Haider Chowdhury, Amir Jafar, Joynul Abedeen, Anirban Chakma, Alamgir Hossain and Sazid Hossain also spoke on the occasion.
RMP Commissioner Humayun Kabir said the community people should extend cooperation towards police with specific information about the criminals. The community people know well about location of the criminals, drug traffickers and traders and the police need the information from the citizens for taking legal action against them.
He added that police-citizens joint efforts can be the vital means of restoring peace and tranquillity everywhere in society. RCC Ward Councillors have a pivotal role in this regard, he added.
