One more time: Chor submitting his application to Kpl Shahir Zainal Abidin at Wisma MCA.
KUALA LUMPUR: Storekeeper Chor Wui Loy is making his eighth attempt to fulfil his dream of becoming a policeman.
The 28-year-old, whose height is several centimetres below the required 163cm for men, is now hoping for a lucky break.
“This is my last chance because I have reached the maximum qualifying age. I hope the force is more lenient this time round. If I fail again, I have to re-plan my future,” said the part-time magician and clown.
Chor submitted his form at a special recruitment drive for Chinese police constables, jointly organised by the Royal Malaysia Police and MCA Youth yesterday.
“It is my dream to become a cop since I finished secondary school but my applications have all been rejected,” he said.
Chor said he had wanted to contribute to keeping society safe since he was eight.
“I was in a bus during Year Two and witnessed two policemen being shot at in Cheras.
“I do not know what happened after that but I told myself that I wanted to get all the bad guys.”
Supermarket supervisor Woon Hui Yong jumped for joy when a police friend told her about the recruitment drive.
“I have prepared for this for almost two years. I love the challenging work of a cop,” said the 19-year-old.
Woon said she wished to work at the Narcotics Investigation Department.
At yesterday’s event at Wisma MCA here, some 50 young Malaysians were given a brief introduction to police life and training programmes.
Two senior officers – ASP Hew Kim Choy from the Special Branch and ASP Chang Sing Kong from the Crime Investigation Department – also shared their experiences with the group.
MCA Youth chief Chong Sin Woon has urged the Chinese to join the police force, saying he had once toyed with idea of having a career in the force.
“The people should change their perception of the police force,” he said, adding that a police trainee can bring home a minimum monthly salary of RM1,700.
