Comment by DATUK REJAL ARBEE
He had at that time felt helpless as he could not stomach what was going on in the force. It is good for the government to sort of rehabilitate him by bringing him back as the IGP.
IT is good that the police itself have at last agreed to the setting up of the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission, IPCMC.
Kudos to the new Inspector-General Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid Bador a man known for his integrity, honesty and forthrightness.
In fact he was at one time more or less forced to go into retirement when he was Head of the Special Branch.
He had at that time felt helpless as he could not stomach what was going on in the force.
It is good for the government to sort of rehabilitate him by bringing him back as the IGP.
Hopefully he will be tough on the recalcitrants by bringing them to face the brunt of the law which they were to have upheld in the first place.
It was a very good beginning for him to have had discussions with the National Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Centre Director-General, Tan Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed resulting in the agreement to set up the IPCMC.
He will have his hands full to blot out the bad image of the police among a lot of people.
That is most unfortunate but the blame for that poor image falls solely on the police itself.
Such was the people’s perception that every time the police held a road block the thinking among most motorists was the policemen there were out to get something for their pockets.
That very bad image was due to their own making as they were then known to actually doing it.
So much so that motorists are known to place a couple of red notes in their driving licenses.
Hopefully their meeting will bring about the much needed change in the very bad perception if the police among the public especially the motorists.
It is time that the police have a good image of doing their best to ensure the people are really taken care of and that they will be able to live in peace without any hindrances.
