Traffic Division

Traffic police have been functioning since the inception of the Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) in 1st January,1979.Musleh Uddin Chowdhury was the first Deputy Police Commissioner(Traffic Division). Even before the establishment of CMP, traffic police used to work under the supervision of the Superintendent of Police, Chittagong District. Horse drawn and rickshaws became so congested that police took control of busy intersections and used to maintain traffic with whistle and by waving arms and hand signals. The advent of the automobile intensified the need for traffic police. Technology improved and automated traffic signals came into play. Traffic police officers spent less time in making sure traffic is kept moving and more time in enforcing laws designed to prevent accidents. It ranges from making drivers wearing seatbelts to cracking down on speeders and other reckless drivers.

The traffic division of CMP is run smoothly by two Deputy Police Commissioners namely-DC, Traffic (North) and DC, Traffic (Port). They are assisted by two Addl. Police Commissioners, four Assistant  Police Commissioners, Traffic Inspectors and Sergeants. CMP Traffic division also has a large no. of Police Personnels.

Assistant Commissioners of police and their teams consisted of Traffic Inspector, Sergeant and Traffic Constables form the field units. These units, indeed implement the policing with regard to Traffic in the city. In discharging its duties smoothly and professionally, traffic department keeps rapport and liaison with the Ministry of Communication, Chittagong City Corporation (CCC), Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) and other concerned authorities.
