SSF to be modernised further: PM
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today said, the Special Security Force (SSF) will be developed as a modern force amid the changing patterns of crimes.
"We can develop our lifestyle using modern technologies. Criminals engaged in terrorism and militancy can also commit crimes of new patterns using technologies at the same time," Hasina said.
She was addressing a special darbar (gathering), arranged marking the 35th founding anniversary of the Special Security Force (SSF).
The Prime Minister virtually joined the function at the Prime Minister's Office through a videoconference from her official residence Gono Bhaban.
Noting that science and technology create risks alongside creating scopes for people, she said, "This is why, we always try to equip this special force with modern training and enhance their efficiency regularly keeping pace with the modern age."
Hasina said the government has already created a scope for the members of this force to have training both at home and abroad.
SSF Director General Major General Md Majibur Rahman, in his welcome speech, described the different activities of the force.
At the function, the Prime Minister opened an e-book titled 'Mujib-Bengali-Bangladesh' which was edited by the SSF Director General.
Md Majibur Rahman also handed over a cheque of Tk two crore to the Prime Minister as donation from SSF to construct 100 houses for homeless families.
