KOTA KINABALU, Jun 21 – Police officers and personnel should be sincere in carrying out their duties as well as complying with the Royal Malaysia Police code of ethics to ensure their integrity as civil servants are safeguarded.
Police Management director Datuk Seri Abdul Ghafar Rajab said such nobles values were crucial in the face of various challenges and obstacles encountered while on duty.
“Apart from dealing with increasingly crooked criminals, pressure from maintaining integrity also demand you to think deeply and rationally.
“Often we read in the newspaper how certain civil servants including police officers and personnel are arrested on drug offences, corruption, abuse of power, negligence and others that had more or less erode public confidence in the police force,” he said.
He said this when closing the Constable – Basis Policing Training programme at Universiti Malaysia Sabah here today.
Abdul Ghafar added police officers and personnel most always be vigilant of the developments in the police force, including reviewing instructions, circulars, latest amendments of the law and standing orders of the Inspector-General of Police.
Some 260 police trainees from Sabah and Sarawak, including 60 women attended the six-month programme since Dec 17. — Bernama
