The “Eagle BD Police” application of Bangladesh Police has won the BASIS ICT National champion award.

State Minister for ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak handed over the award at a ceremony held at a private TV station premises in Dhaka on Sunday. Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi was present as chief guest at the ceremony, organized by Bangladesh Association of Software and Information (BASIS).

The app is currently being operated from Shahbagh and Ashulia police stations on a trial basis and is set to be introduced to 50 police stations under the jurisdiction of DMP.

This digital application service is expected to provide security to women and children in the quickest possible time. A press of a button on one’s phone is enough to alert the nearest police officer, who then can rush to the victim’s location and rescue them.

Communications System Limited (CSL) designed the app under the guidance of Bangladesh Police Headquarters. Once the jurisdiction of DMP is covered, the Eagle BD Police app is scheduled to be introduced at all the police stations across the country to ensure safety of women and children.

How does the app work?

The Eagle BD Police app functions both online and offline, 24/7. A tap on the app is supposed to send the victim’s GPS location to their parents and the nearest police station, and police can then immediately rush to help.

The alert, which also includes the victim’s photograph and phone number in addition to their location, is supposed to set off a siren at the nearest police station.

Police can call the victim instantly, as can their parents. This way, police will be able to rush to the spot and rescue the victim in the shortest possible time.

If the nearest policeman fails to respond in three minutes, the alert will be automatically relayed to the next nearest policeman. Police officials involved in the initiative believe there will be no scope for negligence, as the app will keep track of police response.

CSL’s sister concern Backdoor Private Limited is executing the app. It has already trained the officers-in-charge (OCs) and sub-inspectors (SIs) of all 51 police stations under DMP on how to operate the app.
