President M Abdul Hamid today asked the elite Special Security Force (SSF) to maintain good relation, intense communication and coordination with all associate agencies to ensure full proof security to VVIPs attaching priority to their public relations aspect.
“Consider the factor of VVIPs public relations issue. . . always stay alert so that the common people don’t become victims of unnecessary harassments or sufferings while discharging your duties,” he said while addressing the force’s 33rd founding anniversary celebration at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) here this evening.
The head of the state said the SSF personnel must keep in mind that they were entrusted with the task of providing security to “highly distinguished people” and credit will go to them if they can ensure utmost professionalism keeping the matter of public relations as usual and not creating any gap with the common people.
President Hamid said SSF would earn appreciation if it could deliver its optimum professional services without creating any gap with masses and added “always keep two things in mind simultaneously — security and the issue of public relations”.
He hoped that the elite force could build themselves as efficient and time-befitting personnel in terms of developed human resources, technological advancement, professionalism and loyalty.
“Every SSF personnel should cope with emerging challenges of changing time to provide security protections to VVIPs,” the President added.
Abdul Hamid recalled SSF’s contributions since its inception, saying this particular force has been working relentlessly with utmost professionalism overcoming various challenges.
“The responsibility of providing foolproof security to the VVIPs gradually has become challenging due to Bangladesh’s political perspectives . . . conspiracies of the anti-liberation forces and international terrorism,” he mentioned.
He expected the SSF to become an “ideal security force” being imbued with patriotism and cordiality alongside efficient leadership, proper guidelines and professionalism.
