KUALA LUMPUR: A comprehensive security act is needed by the police in light of new criminal challenges, including child pornography and cyberbullying.
Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said continuous and strategic preventive measures, and aggressive and comprehensive crime eradication could help build a positive public perception of police.
“I hope the Criminal Investigations Department continues to maintain its commitment to reducing the crime index.
“At the same time, for us, we must draw up a comprehensive security plan to face the challenges of new crimes, such as child pornography, cyber sex, cyberbullying and human trafficking, which are getting more public attention.
“Continuous and strategic preventive measures can build a positive (public) perception, thus raising the image of the police force in the eyes of the public,” he said in a message at the monthly assembly in Bukit Aman today.
He said the trust and support given to the police should be reciprocated in the best possible way through the delivery of the best service.
“In addition, ensuring the wellbeing of the community and national security remains the team’s priority,” he said.
Acryl Sani said for the 65th National Day celebrations on Aug 31, all personnel were at the highest level of readiness and ready to serve in any situation.
“If in the past the national fighters succeeded in demanding subjugation from the colonialists, now we are maintaining the independence of a sovereign country, so that it does not return to colonisation and become threatened in the future.
“Once again, I would like to emphasise that integrity and high self-discipline cannot be compromised, especially when it comes to national security.
“It is clear that integrity is the core in the formation and strengthening of our identity. Without a strong identity and integrity, it is inevitable and certain that we will face failure.”
He said, in fact, police’s duties demanded sacrifice without rewards.
“We only hope for support and prayers. May we always be under the protection of the Almighty to continue to shoulder the trust and responsibility to the King and the country,” he said.
At the event, he presented certificates of appreciation to 65 police officers and civil servants who displayed excellent performance throughout their service.
