>move to replace repressive police laws snails

>NOTHING remarkable has yet been achieved to replace the age-old police laws of 1861, which encourage repressive and atrocious policing system, despite the recent reforms in the police department, Shariful Islam writes.
A committee formed following an order from the chief adviser’s office in March last year formulated the draft of Bangladesh Police Ordinance 2007 but it is still being given “finishing touches” by offices concerned.
The reforms so far made in the police department are the results of the police authority’s internal initiatives supported by the Police Reforms Programme (PRP).
These include opening of service delivery centres at a number of police stations and introduction of victim support centres under the supervision of female police officers. One day each month is being observed as “open house day” at a number of police stations for listening to the locals’ complaints.
The PRP has already organised training sessions for policemen on issues like crime scene, forensics, organised crime and terrorism and ICT.
