Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia has requested all citizens to submit landlord-tenant information to their respective police stations and help the police fight crime. The DMP Commissioner said this at the inauguration event of Citizen Information Collection Week (CICW) on Saturday.
Asaduzzaman said: “The Citizen Information Management System (CIMS) project was launched in 2015 but officially started in 2016. “Since then, we have collected the information of 6.3 million people belonging to 2.2 million families – which has helped in reducing militancy, terrorism and other crimes across the country.” He explained that CICW’s purpose was to bring life to this CIMS project that had slowed.
“The incident in Bosila, the militant den raid, on April 29 was the result of missing landlord-tenant information,” the commissioner added. Different beats of the police, with the help of locals, will promote the program in respective areas, which will continue till June 21.
