Air pollution is one of the major public health problems, and vehicular exhaust fumes constitute one of the principal sources of air pollution in urban areas. Because of the nature of their work, traffic police personnel are constantly exposed to air pollution. As a result, they are always at the highest risk of pollution-related diseases compared to other professionals. Long-term, continuous exposure to air pollutants predisposes traffic police personnel to respiratory illnesses. No studies are available on the health status of traffic policemen in Bangladesh despite it being one of the few countries known for its extremely poor air quality. In this review paper, we assessed the plight of the traffic policemen working in different cities in the world that are notoriously famous for air pollution and made some recommendations for Bangladesh traffic policemen to reduce their health risks.
