SHAH ALAM – March 16, 2017: The police is working to improve the performance of its personnel by providing them with technical knowledge ahead of the Transformation 2050 (TN50) time frame.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim described the move as particularly important due to the increase in terrorism and extremism threats, including those via the Internet and social media.
“I think we have to understand that there will be no plan to add (staff) to the service by the government,” he said.
“Thus, we are looking into improving our human resources. Police officers should be equipped with sufficient technical knowledge to go against those threats and I am confident that we will be able to do so.”
Noor Rashid met reporters after a seminar on national security organised by Yayasan Pengaman Malaysia, with the collaboration of the police and higher education institutions.
Foundation chairman Tan Sri Norian Mai, a former police chief, said emphasis should be given to remind youths to be cautious when using social networking sites.
The seminar was attended by about 450 high school and university students in Selangor.
