dc.description.abstract For the social control of a society enforcement of law is essential and this essential duty performs by police. Historically, police has referred the enforcement of criminal law all over the world. The function of police was initially, since the sixteenth century, not understood in a restricted sense as criminal law enforcement, but was broadly conceived in terms of a general governmental program oriented at the welfare, wellbeing, and happiness of individuals on the basis of a broad system of government that include all possible aspects of public life. Instead of merely responding to violation of law, this governmental system of police proactively and positively contributed to advance order and welfare. In more liberal nations police powers were more confined in terms of constitutional rights and restricted to violations of narrowly conceived criminal laws. On the other hands, colonial regimes again followed entirely different paths, closely related to the economic and political objectives of the imposition of colonial rules. From 1757 to 1947 Bangladesh ruled as colony of British Empire. The structure and act of British colonial ruler still kept intact in Bangladesh. The historical transformation of policing was happened in the world, but policing of Bangladesh begins colonial. As an organ of government police face different types of problem with its infrastructure and administrative structure. In this research paper I explain the problems of police and governance. en_US
