Executive SummaryThe first year of Phase II (2010) was a year of transition with changes in both the project team and thesenior ranks of the police. Despite this, the project achieved solid capacity building results and built adeeper level of ownership within the senior ranks of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>. In the year <strong>2011</strong>, the<strong>Programme</strong> regained the momentum seen during Phase I. With a full team in place, the project is focusingon the achievement of key results and community impact. In line with the philosophy of “access to justice”selected key activities have begun to move beyond working solely with the police to actively engagingthe community, civil society and other justice sector stakeholders. Communications at all levelsincreasingly reflect this. Moreover, efforts to manage programmatic risks such as sustainability havebenefitted from increasingly systematic efforts to integrate activities into national budgets and structures.Strategies to address major legislative and procedural hurdles such as the outdated <strong>Police</strong> Act 1861 andthe <strong>Police</strong> Regulations Bengal are being established and actively discussed with the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>.The <strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong> undertook a high quality baseline survey with the support of Saferworld(UK). The survey results, which show a number of positive indicators, will be released in early 2012. Fromthe findings of the survey it appears that much has been achieved by the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> of late,demonstrated by the increasing public confidence and trust in the police and the perception of manythat the law and order situation has improved over the last two years. Other recent research also confirmsthat, compared to previous public perception surveys, people are more positive about the crimesituation and confidence in the police has improved recently although the fear of crime remains highand appears to be rising. Similarly, there appears to be a significant discrepancy between the officialcrime rate and people’s experience of crime, although very few people appear to think that weakpolicing is to blame for criminality.The annual report documents considerable progress against the expected strategic results for <strong>2011</strong>.Strategic policy workUNDP and PRP have increased the efforts to get debate about police legislation back on the agenda. Theissue has been raised with many of the major stakeholders in recent months. The <strong>Programme</strong> hascompleted a comparative review of police legislation from five jurisdictions (Bangladesh, Kenya,Northern Ireland, Pakistan and South Africa). The review will support increased debate on the need toupdate the 1861 <strong>Police</strong> Act and will provide technical support for those officials working on theamended legislation. Efforts to build support for, and knowledge about, the need for new legislationincreased in <strong>2011</strong>.Executive Summary 5


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIThe next generation strategic plan is also under development. The process will benefit from a greaterdegree of national ownership. A police working group has already begun a series of workshops to buildthe understanding of strategic planning. The Strategic Plan will be completed by early next year.The PRP, hosted a conference on “Sustainable <strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> in Bangladesh: From Global Experiences toLocal Strategies” in July <strong>2011</strong>. The conference which identified best practices and lessons learnt from arange of international experiences, centred on four key themes - organisational reform, serious crimeinvestigations, human trafficking and other emerging crimes, and community policing. Seveninternational keynote speakers from South Africa (2), Australia (2), Canada (1), Cambodia (1) and Thailand(1) shared their experiences in police reform.The draft Gender in Policing Strategy was completed during the year under review.Development resultsThe PRP has successfully handed over Six (6) Model Thanas (Gongachara, Hathari, Kotiadi, Bahubal,Sonagazi and Bahubal) on the respective districts. With the Model Thanas, the police can now operate ina modern police station, which when combined with the relevant training and technical support fromPRP, will likely improve the quality of service being provided to the community.The Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> continues to make progress in improving gender equity. Four Hundred andseventy six (476) female police were recruited as female constables during the year under review. And, forthe first time in the history of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>, a female police officer was promoted to the positionof Additional <strong>Police</strong> Commissioner (Dhaka Metropolitan <strong>Police</strong>), and two police women were promotedto the position of Deputy <strong>Police</strong> Commissioners. Although these results should be credited to theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and the Government, the PRP has continued to play a role in promoting gendersensitive policing. For instance, PRP’s other gender interventions (Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> Women’s Network,victim support, gender guidelines, gender training, supporting advertisements for more female officersin newspapers) all heighten awareness of the need for more female police. Furthermore, increasing thenumbers of women police has an impact on human development including women’s empowerment,practical reasons related to access to justice (e.g. women interviewing women in cases of domesticviolence or other abuse) and the overall professionalism and trust/legitimacy of the police which islinked to ensuring that the composition of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> reflects the society it serves.Enhancements in providing victim support services remain on track. The Victim Support Centres inDhaka and Rangamati have to date provided psychological, legal and medical services, includingshort-term shelter services, to 196 victims and 7 victims respectively, a 14% increase from 2010. Theconstruction work of Rangamati VSC was completed in September <strong>2011</strong>; the centre began its operationsin November <strong>2011</strong>. A major long-term sustainability measure was achieved when, at the end of June<strong>2011</strong>, the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> took over the entire operational costs of the Victim Support Centre.Intensive discussions are underway to build partnerships with government agencies and NGOs for theCentre, which was launched in Rangamati this year. To support these and other activities focusing onvulnerable groups, 2157 police personnel and NGO members were trained on gender policing.PRP has continued its efforts to build ownership across the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>. A divisional consultationon the Annual Work Plan was organised at Chittagong Metropolitan <strong>Police</strong> on the 31st March <strong>2011</strong>.Furthermore, to improve project communication on key issues, the Community Policing Strategy and theCommunity Policing Service Manual were developed in Bangla and disseminated to the Bangladesh<strong>Police</strong> and Community Policing Forums.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 6


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIApplications Support Unit, IT Training Unit and units dedicated to planning and project implementation.The outcomes from the workshops on <strong>Police</strong> Priorities for ICT were compiled and submitted to the PRPNational Project Director and to the AIG ICT for review. These will be presented to the IGP and othersenior police management at a later stage. Establishment of a Record Management System is underway.The ICT equipment infrastructure necessary to support the system was procured and delivered.Crime response and prevention will be improved through a better use of information and intelligence.The implementation of the Crime Pattern Analysis System (CPAS) pilot, by the Chittagong Metropolitan<strong>Police</strong>, is continuing. The ICT infrastructure to support the implementation of the Criminal Identificationand Verification System pilot in 58 DMP locations was delivered and the procurement of system softwareis currently under way. The same infrastructure will support a criminal records management systemwhich is planned for implementation later on in the project.The ICT capacity of Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> was also enhanced through the provision of training. A total ofeight hundred and five (805) Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> Officers were trained in basic ICT skills awareness. Incollaboration with the British High Commission in Dhaka, the PRP arranged for two experts from the UKBorder Agency to deliver training on detecting forged travel documents to over 100 officers from theBangladesh international airports, border crossings and posts. Additionally, 60 <strong>Police</strong> Officers and <strong>Police</strong>ICT staff attended ICT certification training as a prerequisite for further training in computer forensicsand ICT support.In conclusion this report indicates that the <strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong> (Phase II) is on track and thatsignificant progress was achieved during its second year. The report highlights the complex reality of thepolice reform process in Bangladesh and the need to view progress in police development from a longterm perspective. This is especially important if reform is to prove to be sustainable.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 8


Section I: ContextKEY AREAS OF DEVELOPMENT AND ISSUES RELATED TO THE SUBJECT AREA IN BANGLADESHBangladesh is a developing nation and a fledgling democracy. Steady economic growth since the early1990s has resulted in rapid gains in Human Development. Bangladesh is currently on track to meet anumber of the Millennium Development Goals. Despite impressive achievements in a variety of fields,Bangladesh suffers from weak governance. Access to justice, respect for the rule of law and knowledgeof human rights are generally acknowledged as inadequate.Law and order, crime and corruption remain serious problems adversely affecting individual safety,national security and economic growth. Overall, crime remains under-reported and inadequatelyinvestigated by the police, the court system is slow and the prisons are overcrowded. There is a growingdesire from civil society, media, government ministries and international agencies to establish a morecoordinated vision for the justice sector. The UNDP is supporting coordination efforts to harmonizesupport to the Justice Sector and is well placed to integrate the <strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong> into theseefforts.Thus, an accountable, transparent and efficient police service in Bangladesh is essential for the safetyand well being of all citizens, national stability and longer-term growth and development, particularlythe creation of a secure environment which is conducive to consumer and investor confidence. Withinthis context the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> have taken important first steps towards reform. The <strong>Programme</strong> isproviding Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> with much needed technical and financial assistance to: undertakeoperational, organisational and legal reform; build training capacity; improve the quality ofinvestigations, operations and prosecutions; consolidate community policing and crime prevention;make policing more gender sensitive and introduce cost effective and realistic informationcommunication technology.The year of <strong>2011</strong> was a successful year for the <strong>Programme</strong> with a full team in place. The project has nowachieved full momentum with a record of significant progress in many activities. Many activities, thefoundations of which were laid in the previous year and early this year, have demonstrated results. The<strong>Programme</strong> is now in a position to put in place a sustainable long-term reform initiative that balancescapacity building initiatives with efforts to strengthen community engagement, accountability andlinkages across the total Justice sector.Section I 9


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIDevelopment Goal and <strong>Programme</strong> PurposeThe development goal is a safer, more secure and stable Bangladesh, where the human rights of citizens,particularly the vulnerable and marginalised, are promoted and protected to accelerate progress on theMDGs, economic growth and social justice.The purpose of the programme is to improve safety, access to justice, and human rights for all citizens,particularly disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, such as women and children.Target beneficiariesThe Bangladesh people, in particular, the disadvantaged, the poor, women and children are the targetbeneficiaries of the PRP. The <strong>Programme</strong> will have national scope and provide support to the police andthe community in both metropolitan and rural locations. The <strong>Programme</strong> focuses on the disadvantaged,poor, ethnic minorities and women and children. These groups have traditionally suffered from aninability and unwillingness to access justice due to an imbalance in power relationships.The <strong>Police</strong> are also beneficiaries benefiting from increased capacity and job satisfaction, improvedmorale, image and social standing.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 10


Section II: Key Achievements and ResultsSTRATEGIC DIRECTION AND ORGANISATIONAL REFORMKey Outcome: Strategic direction and organisational reform supported by planning and budgeting,enhanced accountability and oversight, and a modernized legislative framework.Implementation StrategiesThe project has adopted a strategy to support the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to undertake a comprehensiveanalysis of the legal, financial, social and operational framework, in which they work. The PRP issupporting organisational and structural change to deliver more efficient and effective police servicesand improved access to justice. The PRP will also support the policy, planning and research capacity ofthe Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and Ministry of Home Affairs to deliver on police reform. Supporting theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to strengthen accountability and oversight is a key focus for the PRP. Theestablishment of an independent oversight and accountability mechanism, such as a <strong>Police</strong> ComplaintsCommission and National <strong>Police</strong> Commission, is critical to changing behavior and improving humanrights. Internal accountability mechanisms will also be strengthened and supplemented by professionalstandards, ethics, anti-corruption efforts and training. The PRP will also support efforts to expand, andstrengthen partnerships across the wider justice sector. Working together in a meaningful partnershipwill help to overcome those who resist efforts to establish a professional police service and equitableaccess to justice.Key Activities and ResultsOutput-1.1: Organisational, legal and structural change to improve efficiency and effectiveness ofthe Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>1.1.2 Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> is being supported for legislative reform: A number of strategies wereadopted in <strong>2011</strong> to reinvigorate debate on the reform of the 1861 <strong>Police</strong> Act and <strong>Police</strong> RegulationsBengal 1943. As the first step of the strategy, the programme has completed a comparative analysis ofinternational best practices with regard to police legislation and a gap analysis of the 1861 <strong>Police</strong> Act and2007 Draft <strong>Police</strong> Ordinance against international standards and better practice. The ComparativeReport on <strong>Police</strong> Legislation was written by a lawyer with a long term interest in police reform in SouthAsia and was reviewed by an expert from the Australian National University. The recommendations arenow completed and will be published in 2012. These reports and the recommendations will providesolid and well researched interventions into the debate on police legislative reform in Bangladesh andelsewhere in the Commonwealth. The primary intention will be to use these reports to reanimate thecurrent discussion on legislative reform.Section II 11


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIOutput-2.3: Improvement in capacity to deliver competency based training2.3.1 Establishment of institutional cooperation between all police training institutions: TheTraining Department at the <strong>Police</strong> Headquarters organised a number of consultation meetings with thesupport of the PRP to identify policy issues for review and further development. An inter-institutionalfocus group was established to serve as a working coordination committee with regards to all capacitybuilding development of police training institutions. The committee has wide participation from thedifferent training institutions, supporting cooperation between the different training institutions. Thefocus group also participated in the development process of the Curriculum Development Training<strong>Programme</strong> as well as the revision of the Training of Trainers Learning <strong>Programme</strong>. The Bangladesh<strong>Police</strong> have also reintroduced the Heads of Training Institutions Conference and plans to hold theconference in the 1st quarter of 2012.2.3.2 The capacity of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to deliver competency based training improved: Acurriculum development course was developed that comprises a ‘Presenters Guide’ and a ‘ParticipantsWorkbook’ followed by delivery of training to sixteen (16) curriculum development specialists.The Focus Group on Training identified the Basic Training <strong>Programme</strong> for Constables as the prioritylearning programme to be reviewed by the newly trained curriculum development core group.The core group has completed the preliminary review of the Basic Training Curriculum for Constablesunder the leadership of the curriculum development centre at Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> Academy, Sardah. Thisactivity already indicates ownership of the curriculum development process by the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>and in the long term will have a sustainable impact on the development of learning programmes.The development of the curriculum development working group on the Basic Training <strong>Programme</strong> isongoing. Task analyses for the functions performed by Constables have been completed as well as theidentification of the required knowledge and skills.Section II 15


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase II2.3.3 Support provided to enhance capacity of the training department: A Training of TrainerCourse was delivered to a core group of twenty (20) trainers from the newly established Industrial <strong>Police</strong>Unit. In a similar initiative, eighty (80) facilitators from the In-Service Training Institutions were trainedon Presentation and Facilitation Skills. These trainings are an added advantage and also an importantcomponent of effective training and learning.Presentation Skills Training was delivered to thirty eight (38) trainers from the In-Service TrainingCentres. There is currently a lack of trained trainers to be utilized at the In-Service Training Centres. Thetrained trainers will greatly enhance the capacity of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to deliver trainingprogrammes in a more professional manner.To date, PRP has trained sixteen (16) Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> curriculum development experts. The PRP is alsoengaging in the development of more training programmes, efforts are made to provide the Bangladesh<strong>Police</strong> with firsthand experience in curriculum development.2.3.4 Establishment of institutional cooperation between all police training institutions inprogress: Progress has been made with regard to the establishment of institutional cooperationbetween all Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> institutions. An inter-institution focus group was established to serve asworking coordination committee regarding all the development of capacity building. The committeehas wide participation from the different training institutions, supporting operation between thedifferent training institutions. Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> with the support of PRP has agreed to reintroduce theHeads of Training Institutions Conference. The Institutional Cooperation Committee will serve as theworking committee in the development of the National Training Strategy before submission to theNational Training Board.The Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> with the support of PRP organised a major conference on “Sustainable <strong>Police</strong><strong>Reform</strong> in Bangladesh: From Global Experiences to Local Strategies”. This conference was seen as anunprecedented activity in the history of PRP with the involvement of seven international specialistsexperienced on the reform issues. This conference was part of the PRP drive to sharpen debates onorganisational reform, responses to human trafficking and other emerging crimes; Community Policingand Enhancing Serious Crime Investigation. This conference is one of the key forecasted results in theproject document.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 16


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIThe PRP also facilitated a study tour to Thailand. The study tour group consisted of seven (7)Commandants of PTCs, Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> Training Schools and PRP representatives. The tour enhancedunderstanding and interaction between the commanders from Bangladesh and Thailand. Theparticipants of the tour will also be utilized in the formulating and drafting of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>Training Strategy. It is hoped that participating in international study tours will give the participatingpolice officers a competitive advantage in the police reform initiative since the Bangladesh Governmentacknowledges the value of global experiences.2.3.5 Establish formal and informal relations with regional and international police traininginstitutions: In order for the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to excel, they must gain the knowledge, skills, andattributes that will enable them to operate successfully within the context of a global environment. Inthis regard, with the support of PRP, remarkable progress was made in <strong>2011</strong> with the establishment of aformalized network between the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>, the Royal Thai <strong>Police</strong> and the South African <strong>Police</strong>Service Training Divisions. The establishment of these networks is based on the realisation of thebenefits of collaborative activities, assessment of international best practices and exchange ofinformation between the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and their international counterparts. It is anticipated thatthese networks will also provide a platform for the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to develop effective continuingprofessional development based on international best practices.During the study tour to Thailand meetings took place with the Royal Thai <strong>Police</strong> and strategicpartnerships were established between the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and the International Law EnforcementAcademy (ILEA) in Bangkok.Three consultation workshops took place between the PRP, USAID and ICITAP this year. The purpose ofthe workshops was to exchange information and ensure consistency in the delivery of training, to makesure that there is no overlap and to find areas of common interest. For instance, ICITAP has alreadyindicated an interest to be involved in the development and delivery of Basic Investigation Skills training.ICITAP is also liaising with ILEA Bangkok to obtain training opportunities for Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> members.2.3.6 Training capacity for the <strong>Police</strong> Training Centers being improved: In order to enhanceinfrastructural and technical capacity of the training centres , an assessment survey was conducted atthe Detective Training School and Khulna <strong>Police</strong> Training College (PTC) to facilitate renovations at thefacility. An assessment report with the required costing was completed. The procurement process iscurrently ongoing. The renovations and refurbishments will create a conducive learning environmentand ultimately enhance the capacity to deliver training and development.2.3.7 Process initiated to train Chowkidars/Dafadars (Village <strong>Police</strong>): A number of consultationmeetings were held with the Training Component of the Village Court Project of UNDP to identifycommon areas for collaboration and support between the two projects. Further consultations with theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong>, UNDP Village Court Project and the National Institute for Local Government will takeplace in the near future.A working relationship was established with Chowkidars / Dafadars of the Fakhirat Model Thana. Itbecame evident that chowkidars and dafadars are an important link between the community and police,therefore all efforts should be employed to sustain the working relationship and to ensure propertraining is developed and delivered to them.Section II 17


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIPartnerships• Formal relations were established between the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and the Dutch Embassy for theassessment and upgrading of the Masters of Policing qualification. Final approval and continuingof the partnership has been transferred to the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>.• A partnership was also established with the US Embassy to Bangladesh during the developmentand delivery of a curriculum design and development course. An international consultant wasprocured by the US Embassy to work jointly with a PRP consultant.INVESTIGATION, OPERATIONS AND PROSECUTIONSKey Outcome: Improved police investigation, operations, and prosecutions to enhance fair and equitablejusticeImplementation StrategiesThe PRP is supporting efforts to strengthen police operations and investigations: Capacity is being builtto help the police to undertake investigations in a timely and professional manner. This means police willconduct investigations based on sound evidence and case management and improved preparation andpresentation of court documents. The main emphasis will be directed towards the various investigationagencies; however, other population of the police including the local Thanas, will also be trained. Thisinitiative is designed to ensure an appropriate level of investigative response is provided throughoutBangladesh, particularly with regard to crimes against persons and property. To support this initiative,efforts are also being made to improve the capacity for collection, analysis and dissemination ofintelligence. This would bolster investigations and operations and enable more proactive strategies totarget criminal activities.Key Activities and ResultsOutput-3.1:proceduresInvestigation processes begin to shift from confession to hard evidence based3.1.2 Development of a Forensic Science Strategy in progress: A focus group comprised ofrepresentatives from the Criminal Investigation Department, Forensic Lab and Dhaka Metropolitan<strong>Police</strong> has been working to develop a forensic strategy for Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>. A Forensic ScienceStrategy will be a guiding tool for the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to enhance the use of contemporary forensicscience methods. This will enable a shift from primarily confession based investigations to the use ofphysical evidence to support modern investigation practices.Using the knowledge and experience acquired from the study tour carried out in Thailand andCambodia on forensic services, the group met on a number of occasions to discuss formulating thestrategy. The draft Forensic Science Strategy is now under review with the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>.The PRP provided support, including ICT hardware and furniture, to the Forensic Laboratory and theChemical Laboratory in Mohakhali, Dhaka. The PRP also trained twenty (20) fingerprint experts from theCID. This training improved their capacity on fingerprint examination which will enable the labs todevelop forensic reports and court documents more professionally.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 18


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIProcurement of one hundred (100) crime scene kits for the delivery to local Thanas has commenced. Thematerial supplied in these kits will enhance the crime scene training that was delivered to one thousand(1000) front line police. The materials will enable the collection of physical evidence linking the offenderto the crime. This will reduce reliance on confessional or oral evidence and increase the number ofsuccessful prosecutions.A review of the current activities of the Forensic Science laboratory was undertaken by an internationalforensic consultant. The aim of this review was to identify current responses to the provision of forensicservices as well as make recommendations to improve the services. The report was presented by theconsultant to the Additional IGP CID and other senior police. In a similar initiative, a draft discussionpaper to support the development of a forensic science and crime scene management strategy is beingdeveloped by a focus group comprising of representatives from Dhaka Forensic Lab and CID. Its purposeis to review the current provision of forensic services and to provide recommendations to the IGP forfurther action. It is anticipated that this process will provide a foundation for the development of aForensic Science strategy that is appropriate to the current policies, procedures and legislation inBangladesh. The strategy will incorporate some of the recommendations from the review undertakenby an international forensic consultant which include changes in the management structure of thelaboratories, quality control, dedicated budgeting, organisational structure, crime scene managementand support for legislative reforms.3.1.3 Basic forensic awareness including crime scene preservation being improved: The PRP ison track in improving many of the structural foundations of better investigations. A three-week Trainingof Trainers (ToT) course in crime scene management was delivered to twenty two (22) experiencedpolice from the forensic laboratory. Also a workbook was developed and 1000 copies printed anddistributed to the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>. It is proposed that this core group will deliver training to 2000police men and women over the two years (<strong>2011</strong> and 2012). In <strong>2011</strong>, training on Basic Crime SceneManagement has been provided to 953 police. The training enhanced knowledge and understandingabout fingerprint lifting, crime scene photography and other scene management skills. This indicates agrowing ownership of the modernisation process in the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>.A three week latent fingerprint Examiners Course was delivered to twenty (20) fingerprints examinerslinked to the Forensic Laboratory. This training will enhance capacity of the experts to examine andclassify fingerprints. Efforts were also made to facilitate the development of appropriate StandardSection II 19


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIOperating Procedures (SOP’s) for CID Forensic Lab. The SOP’s ensures that contemporary and efficientforensic services are provided to the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and the service complies with all legislative,internal and external policy requirements.Output-3.2:Investigation capacity for both general and specialized crime improved3.2.1 The capacity of Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to deal more efficiently with Criminal Intelligence isbeing enhanced / 3.2.2 The capacity of Criminal Intelligence Department, Special Branch andDetective Branch to deal more professionally with serious crime enhanced: A greater emphasis wasgiven to enhance the investigation capacity of specialised crimes outside of general investigation. Afocus group with representatives from CID, Criminal Intelligence Unit, Trafficking in Human Beings Unit,Special Branch and Dhaka Metropolitan <strong>Police</strong> have developed an Intelligence discussion paper and aTHB Investigations paper to enhance criminal investigations and criminal intelligence. The draftdiscussion paper which is now under review by the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> will be a guiding document onhow to deal more professionally with crimes related to women and children especially human traffickingcases.A focus group with representatives from the CID, Special Branch, DMP, and MoHA have drafted adiscussion paper on enhancing responses to the investigation of serious crimes. The paper which is nowunder review by the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> aims to stimulate discussion and identify opportunities to reviewthe current investigation structure and to provide a better process which will ensure that timely andprofessional investigation of serious and other emerging crimes is undertaken.A focus group comprised of representatives from CID, SB, DB and the Detective Training School (DTS) hasbeen formed to review the current response to serious crime investigation. The group is to review thecurrent response to investigating serious crimes and make recommendations to the IGP for his direction.Enhancing the response to serious crime was also a topic at the International Conference conducted inDhaka in July <strong>2011</strong>. A number of recommendations were made as a result of that conference. Thoserecommendations will be presented to the IGP at a meeting to be arranged in the New Year.A focus group was also formed to review the current response to the investigation of human trafficking.This group comprised of representatives from CID, SB DB and Ministry of Home Affairs. The purpose wasto establish the current investigation response and make recommendations to the IGP for his direction.The THB unit in CID is overseeing THB investigations conducted throughout Bangladesh. In this year,<strong>2011</strong> the unit has investigated two cases.Case Study:The <strong>Police</strong> Investigations processes begins to shift from reliance on confessions to hard evidenceIn order to enhance the quality of the police investigations and bring about a shift from the currentdependency on oral testimony to hard evidence based investigations and court proceedings, the PRPhas been assisting in the modernisation of the Forensic Department of the CID, Criminal IntelligenceUnit, Crime Scene Unit, Chemical Laboratory and the other departments of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>. Themembers of the crime scene unit have all undertaken the Crime Scene Training <strong>Programme</strong> provided bythe PRP. In addition, the equipment used to locate and collect the physical evidence was also providedby the PRP. A key priority of the PRP is to enhance the capacity of the police to investigate crime byutilizing the physical evidence and not relying solely on oral confessional evidence.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 20


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIOutput-3.3: System/process improved for criminal intelligence gathering, analysis anddissemination3.3.1 Criminal intelligence analysis capacity of Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> enhanced/3.3.2strengthening of the central Criminal Intelligence Unit and Cells at Metropolitan DetectiveBranches are being established: The collection and analysis of criminal intelligence is a very vital partof the identification of offenders. In order to enhance the capacity of criminal intelligence analysis of theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to collect, analyse and disseminate data of criminal intelligence, a two week trainingcourse on criminal intelligence analysis was organised. The Australian Federal <strong>Police</strong> assisted indelivering the training to twenty (20) police officers. The participants are now using the knowledge andexperience acquired from the training for analysing criminal intelligence in a more efficient way. In asimilar initiative, a focus group comprised of representatives from CID, SB, DB and Ministry of HomeAffairs was also formed to review the current response to the collection, analysis and dissemination ofcriminal intelligence. The purpose was to establish the current response and make recommendations tothe IGP for his direction. The recommendations include the identification of an appropriate structure tosupport the collection of intelligence from the village/ Thana level through to a national body thatcoordinates and manages the intelligence product. Other recommendations included having trainedanalyst deployed at the Thana, District and headquarter levels.Additionally, in order to enhance police criminal intelligence capacity, a draft paper was developed by afocus group comprising of key police stakeholders. The draft paper identified options for a criminalintelligence structure that will enable information to be gathered in all areas of the country, analysed inidentified locations and the data stored nationally. Specialist training and equipment has been providedto facilitate the capacity development process. In parallel to these activities is the establishment of afurther six Criminal Intelligence Units (CIU) in the six Metropolitan <strong>Police</strong> areas is in progress. Each ofthese units will be provided with specialist i2 analyst notebook software and personnel will be trained inits use. Space for these units has been earmarked and human resources were deployed in late <strong>2011</strong>. In aparallel initiative, twenty-one (21) police officers were trained on ‘criminal intelligence analyses’, theseofficers will be deployed at newly established CIU Units.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 22


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase II3.3.4 Enhanced accredited in-house capacity for certified use of i2 notebook: The i2 analystnotebook is viewed as the benchmark of analytical software and is used in the majority of lawenforcement and intelligence agencies around the world. The criminal intelligence capacity of theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> at Metropolitan HQs was enhanced through the provision of eight i2 analystnotebook software licenses. To ensure an understanding of this software an international consultantcertified in the delivery of this training was contracted and delivered a 4-day training programme to 33selected police personnel in two batches. The training will help the trained officer to master the use ofthe i2 Analyst's Notebook supplied to the police, which have extensive assisted analysis and visualizationcapabilities. These help analysts in quickly turning large sets of disparate information into high-qualityand actionable intelligence to prevent crime and terrorism.Network and Knowledge SharingThrough this component a meeting was facilitated between key law enforcement capacity and trainingproviders from the US Embassy and Australian High Commission in Bangladesh. The aim of this meetingwas to provide an overview of the current capacity of Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to identify capacity building andtraining opportunities.Challenges/Difficulties EncounteredLegislative reform is critical to the investigation process. Outdated legislation, especially the EvidenceAct (1872) hinders contemporary methods of examining physical evidence and conductinginvestigations. This is highlighted in each of the discussion papers and remains a challenge to the reformprocess. The Evidence Act amendment is currently being considered by the Ministry of Law, Justice andParliamentary Affairs. Amending the Act to codify the use of “hard” evidence will have an importantimpact on police investigations, prosecutions and also human rights as most investigations are currentlysupported by confessions, which are then often questioned in court.CRIME PREVENTION AND COMMUNITY POLICINGKey Outcome: Improved trust and interaction between community and police resulting in improved accessto justice, human rights and reduced fear of crime.Implementation StrategiesThe project has adopted a strategy to establish a sustainable structure through which communitypolicing will function. This will commence from the Crime Prevention Centre at the <strong>Police</strong> Headquarters,Range DIG offices and Commissioners offices at the Metropolitan <strong>Police</strong>, Community Policing Cells at theDistrict and Thana levels, down to the Community Policing Forums. In order to achieve this, PRP issupporting 8,400 Community Policing Forums as a pilot initiative for effective functioning of CommunityPolicing Forums (CPFs) for the duration of the project. The PRP will also enhance the capacity of theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to monitor the implementation of a sustainable structure, in accordance with theNational Community Policing Strategy. Community policing initiatives will also be initiated in theChittagong Hill Tracts, where better models for service delivery will be employed to cater for theindigenous population who have traditionally struggled to access justice. The PRP is supporting theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to implement the National Community Policing Strategy, which outlines thestandards and guidelines for the operation of Community Policing Forums, Thana Open House Days,and the training of key personnel.

Section IV: PartnershipsThe establishment of effective partnerships between the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and relevant national andinternational organizations has been a key priority. The aim is to establish broad alliances, capable ofmaking concrete and tangible contributions to the <strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> in Bangladesh. Accordingly, the PRPcontinuously explores suitable organizations and institutions as potential partners in various areasunder different outcome activities. Some of the partners which the PRP has been working with are listedbelow:A process has been initiated to establish a partnership with a Dutch educational institution and theBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> with regards to senior management police training. The Masters’ degree inPolicing presented at Sardah and <strong>Police</strong> Staff College will be explored for a possible partnership.Contact was made with the Dutch Embassy and further discussions will take place during 2012.A partnership has been established between the Urban Partnership for Poverty Reduction<strong>Programme</strong> (UPPR) and the PRP of UNDP in Phase-II. A Letter of Intent (LOI) has been signedbetween the PRP and UPPR that will govern future collaboration between two projects in the areaswhere both projects are working and on the national level with regard to policies and strategies onurban poverty reduction and community safety. Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and PRP have been working closely with UNICEF and the Child Justice Network 1to ensure children’s rights and justice in Bangladesh from Phase-I. As members of the network, thePRP and Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> provided feedback on the draft Children Act 2010, which is currentlyunder review with the Ministry of Social Welfare.Ten NGOs 2 have been identified and partnerships established for the victim support services(victim of any type of crime including human trafficking). A Memorandum of Agreement has beensigned between Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> and the NGOs in 2009 and renewed in 2010. The NGOs areproviding support in the areas of legal, medical and psychological counseling including long-termshelter and rehabilitation.Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> through its Women’s Network (BPWN) and the PRP continuous to strengthen astrong partnership with the International Association of Women <strong>Police</strong> (IAWP). The IAWP has beenproviding support in the areas of professional development, training, recognition, mentoring,networking and peer support.12Child Justice network consists of members from UN agencies, donors, international and national NGOs playing key role for child justice in BangladeshAin O Shalish Kendra, Association for Community Development, Association for Correction and Social Reclamation, Aparajeyo Bangladesh, Acid SurvivorsFoundation, Bangladesh National Woman Lawyers’ Association, Bangladesh Mahila Parishad, Bangladesh Legal Aid and Services Trust, Dhaka Ahsania Mission,and Marie StopesAnnual Report <strong>2011</strong> 44


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong> Phase IISection V: Lessons Learnt and Future StrategicDirectionLessons learntIn the course of implementation of project activities, a number of lessons were learnt including thefollowing:Legislative reform remains a major hurdle to police reform: Amendments to outdatedlegislation (<strong>Police</strong> Act: 1861, Evidence Act, and <strong>Police</strong> Regulations Bengal, 1943) are critical formeaningful and sustainable reform.Definitions of superintendence are central to the reform process. Striking an appropriate balancebetween operational autonomy of the police on day-to-day tasks, superintendence of thegovernment on policy matters and oversight and accountability of the <strong>Police</strong> will be a difficulttask given vested interests.Gender imbalance: Women police make up less than 2% of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong>. This numberlags well behind other least developed countries where the average is 8%. The low proportion offemale staff in the Thanas, coupled with a low level of awareness of gender issues, createsdifficulties when dealing with female victims and young persons requiring gender-sensitiveapproach. International best practice suggests that a police service is most trusted when it reflectsthe composition of the community that it serves.Recruitment, retention, transfers and promotions can undermine investments in reform. TheBangladesh <strong>Police</strong> needs to consider the retention of key staff for a reasonable duration oftime to support improvements in service delivery. This could be piloted in Model Thana andother areas of the <strong>Police</strong> with PRP involvement.The concept of Community Policing and Crime Prevention have become a key driver in theshift to a more service oriented policing model: Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> recognises the value of thisapproach and has included this in the Strategic Plan for 2008-10. The model now needs to bestrengthened to support problem solving responses to community issues.Procurement procedures and mechanisms between the PRP and UNDP need to bestrengthened. To ensure successful outcomes, the PRP initiated weekly meetings with the UNDPprocurement section to monitor procurement status and to address any issues that arise. At a laterstage, the PRP provided direct support with managing SSA contract.Section V 45


<strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong>, Phase IIThe <strong>Police</strong> <strong>Reform</strong> <strong>Programme</strong> needs to focus much more on the demand side of reform. Supplyside capacity building alone will not have the desired effect. Partnerships with civil society, mediaand other community groups around functional tasks and advocacy need to be increased to createthe demand for change. As the victim support centre partnership demonstrated thesepartnerships is a force multiplier for the PRP.Supply of literature to the police officers and community members across the country can providea clearer understanding of the Community Policing philosophy and its benefits to crimeprevention.Future Strategic DirectionsPhase II of the PRP will support the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> in improving safety, access to justice and humanrights, particularly for disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, to contribute to an environment whereeconomic growth and poverty reduction can occur. The priorities for <strong>2011</strong>-2014 will include:Consolidating the Community Policing philosophy nationwide and encouraging the police toundertake a more proactive “crime prevention” role;Improving police investigations, operations and prosecutions to enhance fair and equitablejustice;Improving human resources management including building training capacity to produce qualitypolice personnel;Strengthening the organisational capacity of the Bangladesh <strong>Police</strong> to better plan, budget,operate, and provide input into an updated legislative framework;Making policing more gender sensitive;Improving crime response and crime prevention through realistic and cost effective InformationCommunications Technology; andStrengthening linkages with the wider justice sector at both the policy and the functional level.Annual Report <strong>2011</strong> 46
