New chief Abdul Hamid Bador set to change image of police force

Patriot welcomes Abdul Hamid Bador as the new Inspector General of Police taking over from Mohamad Fuzi Harun and agrees with many others that the former is the best choice to the exulted post of police chief.

Patriot congratulates Abdul Hamid on his promotion and trusts that he is the best police officer for the post. He is set to change the image of the force that has been mired by controversies of serious corruption and abuses from among some members of the force.

Abdul Hamid has integrity, a leadership quality that is very significant to raise the battered image of the police force and to raise the moral of the men and women in blue. The inspector-general and the police force have a very important role to stem the tide of rising ethno-religious sentiments played by opposition politicians.

Besides, they also have to maintain constant vigilance against terrorism and nip in the bud any suspicious activities before the scourge of terror can take root. There are those who stir religious issues by belittling other religions and play up the royalty issue against the Pakatan Harapan government. The police have an important role to keep check on all these issues.

Abdul Hamid has only two years to straighten up the force. Patriot believes he – being a man imbued with trust and integrity and most of all, being God-fearing – will be duly supported by his subordinates in the fulfilment of his duties.

Patriot is ever willingly to offer support to the inspector general and the police force when necessary. Patriot also wishes Mohamad Fuzi a happy retirement.

You are the one. Make it work and get the predecessors to be accountable for all the misdeeds including the enforced disappearances of the several innocent citizens. Cheers!
