Video Discusses Community Policing Forums in Bangladesh

September 12, 2012

In a new video, members of the community and the police from Bangladesh’s Rajshahi discuss how The Asia Foundation’s community-based policing forums are helping build trust and increase communication. The forums, which take place in 518 villages, are one of the few settings where citizens and the police can talk candidly about crime issues that plague local communities. Watch now.

  1. What to know more about community-oriented policing and why it works?
    See “Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism, Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police” (Amazon.com in US and EU). And the blog at http://improvingpolice.wordpress.com/ where other current police improvement issues are discussed. Good luck and may we all experience not just good but great policing! Great policing is accomplished by police who are well-trained and led, restrained in their use of force, honest, and courteous to every person.
