There is no tolerance for the integrity and discipline of PDRM members – Saifuddin

PUTRAJAYA – The Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) takes a zero tolerance stance on matters of discipline and integrity among members of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM).

Its minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail reminded, will not compromise with any policeman who has discipline problems and violates work ethics, thus damaging the image and reputation of the force.

He said, this approach is to preserve the image and reputation of the institution of the security force to always be at a high level.

I delivered the message at the KDN’s monthly assembly, ‘zero tolerance’ against violations by police officers,” he said in a brief ceremony at his official residence in Precinct 10, Putrajaya last night.

Saifuddin said that he was aware of the reports about disciplinary problems, violations of work ethics, corruption and crime among policemen.

According to him, the matter is a big issue because the police is a security enforcement force to maintain public peace and order.

“So when the collision involves policemen, it will be the focus of the people and we cannot defend it because of the ‘zero tolerance’ principle,” he said.

He insisted that the IGP, Tan Sri Razarudin Husain and DIGP Datuk Seri Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay and several heads of departments in the higher levels of the PDRM are committed and have delivered the message (zero tolerance) to PDRM citizens.

I saw that Razarudin had also gone down to the state contingent police headquarters and the district police headquarters, in addition to communicating with the officers of the patrol car unit (MPV) to ensure that they obey discipline and follow the guidelines that have been set.

“His ‘omnipresence’ has given an extraordinary impetus to PDRM members to work more diligently and be responsible under them,” he added.
