KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25 — Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador expressed the hope that the Dewan Rakyat will approve the 2021 budget to enable the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) to maintain security and public order.
He said that the police always focus on maintaining security and public order, on top of implementing the recovery movement control order (RMCO)’s standard operating procedures (SOPs).

The voting on the said bill is scheduled tomorrow (Nov 26).

“The country’s security is under control and the police will continue to monitor any activities nationwide, while remain focus on tasks of helping the Health Ministry to curb the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
Bernama previously reported that an allocation of RM17 billion in the 2021 Budget for the Home Ministry will be utilised to beef up national security as well as to further strengthen the services and delivery system of PDRM. — Bernama
