SUKSIS can draw more to join police

THE police force is confident that the Police Undergraduate Voluntary Corp (Sukarelawan Kor Siswa Siswi – SUKSIS) set up in universities will spur more people to join the force. 

Selangor CPO Deputy Comm Datuk Ismail Omar said there had been an increase in participation from secondary school students in the Police Cadet Corp already implemented in many schools, and the continuity after they entered varsity would attract them to join the force when they graduated. 

“The figures might not be visible now but I am confident that in about three years, there will be a visible rise in the number of people applying to join the force,” he said after attending the state-level 37th anniversary celebrations of the Police Cadet Corp held at the Sungai Besar stadium in Sabak Bernam recently.

A total of 1,200 cadets from 23 contingents took part in the celebrations. 

He said the creation of the corp in universities also allowed those who had not participated in school to join and get a better understanding of the police and their service to the public. 

He said the realisation of the importance of the policemen’s job would move graduates to opt for a career in the police. 

DCP Ismail said the state police was also working with the Selangor Education Department in approaching more schools to set up the corp. 

“We have set a target of a 25% increase in the number of cadets by the end of the year and we will work towards achieving it,” he said.

He said the police and Education Department had found that cadets showed a high level of discipline and stayed away from social ills such as drug abuse and truancy.  

“Joining the cadet corp is also a good way to gain a better understanding of the duties of the police and realise how the public can work together with us to prevent crime,” he said.
