KOTA KINABALU, Oct 8 – The police department has sent several proposals to the government for consideration in Budget 2018 which will be tabled soon, to enhance its capabilities to fight crime in the country. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the proposal, among others, sought to improve the department’s information technology system as a step towards strengthening its operations, including addressing cyber crimes and the spread of Daesh ideology.

“In addition, one of the four major focus points I mentioned when taking over the leadership recently was that I want to empower intelligence led policing, and this would be technology based. We have to improve the monitoring system to ensure we can combat and overcome syndicate based crimes, group crimes, armed crimes, besides (monitoring movements) of those involved with drug trafficking either locally, or internationally.

“In view of this, we hope the government will pay attention to the issues mentioned. We have made reasonable requests, but it depends on the government’s financial capabilities,” he said when met by reporters here, today. Mohamad Fuzi said the government should also look into the need to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras in lock-ups to address the issue of detainees dying under custody, as well as renovate dilapidated police stations and improve logistics.

On another note, Mohamad Fuzi said the police would continue to monitor and pay attention to security in Sabah, especially in the east coast of the state. “We will coordinate all intelligence with other security agencies including the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) to ensure an effective fight against terrorism,” he said. — AFP
