Bangladesh: ICITAP-Supported Police Women Ascend to Leadership Positions

On June 20, ICITAP participated in a meeting with the Superintendent of the Chittagong Metropolitan Police, who was recently promoted in part due to numerous women-empowerment trainings. She is now one of three women police leaders to hold the position of District in Charge (throughout Bangladesh’s 64 districts). ICITAP sponsored the Superintendent’s attendance to the International Association of Women Police (IAWP) Conference in 2016 (Barcelona) and 2018 (Calgary), and she continues her engagement through ICITAP mentorship and training activities.
