Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal opened the police station on Jul 7, 2018.Residents of Hatirjheel area are relieved from the hassle of getting proper services from the law enforcing agencies as the government has opened a new police station in the locality.
Located in the borders of Ramna, Badda, Rampura, Gulshan and Tejgaon police stations, Hatirjheel residents earlier found it difficult to get services from the police as on many occasions the stations tried to avoid taking cases giving excuse to lack of clear demarcation of their territories.
Officer-in-Charge of the newly established police station Abu Md Fazlul Karim said, “Hatirjheel is located in the borders of five police stations and it created territorial jurisdiction complicacy. Now we have brought the area under one police station to give proper service to the residents.”

We hope that it would be over now, he said.
The new station has three inspectors, 12 sub-inspectors, 21 assistant sub-inspectors and 35 constables.
