Several newspapers and periodicals in English & Bangla published online and printed format throughout the country and abroad. International Crime Reporters Society has been recognized by several crime reporters working with renowned institution around the globe. Journalists from this region had worked as Editors in the national and international press and made International Crime Reporters Society globally popular.
With the launch of domestic editions in Bengali and English, there has been a virtual explosion in the dissemination of crime news from the rural areas of Bangladesh. For the first time in recent years, rural correspondents, called “Stringers”. “Contributors” or “Part-time Correspondents” emerged on the scene of crime Journalism in the country.
About 200 such crime correspondents are working for various newspapers since 2010 for International Crime Reporters Society. Most of these correspondents did not have any professional background of Journalism.
Some of them were self-taught and picked up the threads of journalism in short time, while a large majority of them required a little help by way of professional advise and guidance. There was a need to provide them access to professional inputs on various topics of journalism, such as the Law of libel, the law relating to the privileges of the members of Assembly and Parliament, the concept of Code of Ethics in journalism etc. It was with this need and in view of that Members of the Society proposed setting up a Global Society of covering and gather contents of international crime and explore the news for the media worldwide.
