IT was a proud moment for 35 police Corporals who were promoted to the rank of Sergeant at the Perak police contingent headquarters in Ipoh on Monday.

They were among 109 policemen in the state contingent who received their promotion stripes from state police administration department chief SAC Zulkapli Ahmad.

SAC Zulkapli said, of the 35 policemen, five were from the administration department, seven from special branch, eight from criminal investigation, narcotics (three), commercial crime (one), traffic (six) and logistics (five).

“I hope with these promotion, it will encourage you to work harder and to continue preserving the image of the police force.

“I also hope that those promoted will be prepared to take on heavier responsibilities and be prepared to fill in any vacancies left in other contingents,” he said.

He added that the policemen should also improve themselves by getting more knowledge, learning more skills and to have the right attitude to succeed.

SAC Zulkapli also said all policemen, including those who were not promoted, to converge their energy and resources to ensure the country remained peaceful and harmonious.

“Let us make this a reality where every citizen could sleep soundly and feel safe wherever they are.
