Police Need to Transform Attitude and Work Discipline - PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 7 2012 (Bernama) --

 

Members of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) need to transform their attitude and work discipline by minimising the need for supervision by superior officers in facing challenges to fulfill the increasing complex demands of society, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said, through steady self-discipline, the perception of society towards policing tasks would change, thus making the force a respected one.

"This is where the challenge is for policemen to carry out a transformation to enable PDRM to face the people who always want their lives to be assured in terms of security in this changing era.

 

"As such, we have to have a positive attitude in responding to the challenge by updating existing standard operating procedures," he said at a breaking of the fast ceremony with PDRM members at the Police Training Centre, here, Tuesday.

Also present were Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar and Chief Secretary to the Government, Datuk Seri Dr Ali Hamsa.

Speaking before 5,000 police personnel of various ranks, Najib said he believed every member of PDRM would respond to the challenge with full commitment and dedication.

The Prime Minister said in whatever situation, PDRM needed to emerge as a team which was always respected by all levels.

"I regard this as a new challenge, not only to PDRM, but also to the government in general, and as for the government, we will endeavour to help boost every aspect of the capability of the team," he said.

He said the government would always assist PDRM to develop its true capability according to its affordability.

"If we want to go to war, we must be equipped with weapons and strength to win.

 

"The government will help PDRM to increase its capacity," he said.

In the meantime, Najib wanted PDRM to continue to make GTP2 (Government Transformation Programme 2) a success as had been the case with GTP1.

 

"Don't be disappointed if there is polemics and perception and what not on figures because we can continue our capability to go higher," he said.

At the ceremony, Najib also handed cheques to 18 widows of personnel who were killed while on duty, ex-gratia recipients and 10 privilege card recipients.

Other than breaking the fast, Najib also spent time to perform the Tarawih prayers with PDRM members at the Solehin Mosque there.
