Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) received huge response while collecting citizen information, during Citizen Information Collection Week, aimed at creating awareness among house owners, and tenants about providing necessary information on citizens living in the city, said Commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia.

In a seminar titled ‘Role of public representative in preventing violent extremism’ DMP Commissioner said, “There are 65 lakh citizens’ information stored in citizen management information system. By next week, 5 lakh more will be added to the list,” which will help DMP to prevent extremism.

To update information in its Citizen Information Management System (CIMS), the DMP gathered landlord-tenant information through Citizen Information Collection Week (CICW), which took place from June 15 to 21.

Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Md Atiqul Islam was the chief guest at the seminar, while Additional Commissioner Monirul Islam, head of Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s (DMP) Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit, was in the chair.

Police held discussions with the elected DNCC councilors to make them aware on extremism in the city.

Seeking cooperation from the public representatives, the mayor said “Not only terrorism and extremism, but also crimes like murder, hijacking, tender grabbing, will be stopped in Dhaka.

Following the government’s security measures, murder, crime rate, and violent crimes have dropped significantly, added the DMP Commissioner. 

He requested the city dwellers for installing CCTV in houses and shops everywhere in the capital.

“These CCTVs are silent watchdogs to ensure security,” he added.

In his speech, DNCC mayor Md Atiqul Islam said: “We need to build up social movement against terrorism.”

Monirul Islam, head of CTTC urged parents and Islamic scholars, to inform police, if they find anything suspicious in their children.

“We want to oust terrorism by 2021. “We want to reach every citizen to make them aware, and teach about extremism,” he said.
