A FOUR-day annual training programme for officers in the Royal Malaysia Volunteer Police Reserve (PVR) drew 72 members from 12 police contingents in Peninsular Malaysia.

In the closing ceremony in Kampar, Perak contingent Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department head SAC Shahrum Hashim said, “The training aims not only to enhance professionalism and skills but also boost self-motivation to allow volunteers to perform their duties effectively.

“It is crucial for the acquired knowledge to be implemented in the day-to-day operations of each contingent.”

Shahrum, who was representing Perak police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri, added that this year’s programme was organised by the Perak contingent Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department, under the directive of Bukit Aman.

According to Bukit Aman Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department’s resource support coordination division, 15,500 positions for police volunteers have been established across Malaysia, including Sabah and Sarawak.

“Of that number, 5,695 positions are filled, leaving 9,805 positions vacant,” said SAC Shahrum.

Throughout the four days, participants were trained through six major modules covering various aspects.

Additionally, the division’s Insp Shukriyazam Ismail led the module on “Communication in Police Work.”

Participants also learned about “Methods of Inspection and Arrest/Self-Defense” conducted by Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department Supt Saralathan Duraisamy along with Crime Investigation Department DSP Derek Lai Marn Kuen.

Physical fitness, including marching drills and aerobics were also part of the training.

Present at the closing ceremony were Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department (Planning/Strategic) deputy chief Asst Comm Ng Kong Soon, Bukit Aman PVR coordinator officer volunteer police superintendent Datuk Seri Johnny Ch’ng Ewe Gee, and PVR Commandant volunteer police superintendent Ore Hock Seng.

PVR participant L/Korp Chan Siew Gek, 46, from Selangor said, “I am lucky to be selected for this training.

“I hope to see more such programmes as they help us gain experience, find motivation, and enhance efficiency.”

Chan also highlighted the comprehensive training modules which covered everything from marching drills to legal instruction.

L/Korp Nor Hidayah Musa Saisoo, 38, from Tapah said, “This course boosts my confidence in my duties. I hope it is organised often for volunteers’ benefit.”

Meanwhile, PVR Korp Jee Jeet Wen, 52, from Kuala Lumpur, said, “This training is invaluable, particularly the focus on theory and laws, which I find essential in our work,” he said.

“I would appreciate it if this course could be extended to allow us to acquire even more knowledge.”
