CHIANG MAI: The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), described by Interpol as a model police force, especially in combating transnational crimes, has been invited to be Asias representative at its next world conference in Mexico in October.
Interpol secretary-general Ronald K. Noble said the PDRM had proven to be a very important member of Interpol as it had shown great commitment in combating all forms of crime.
He said he was impressed with the PDRMs commitment in actively participating in all its programmes, especially in its anti-terrorism, anti-drug and anti-human trafficking projects.
They (PDRM) talk less and act very fast. In fact, they are the fastest to response whenever we need any assistance, he said in an interview yesterday.
We respect the Malaysian police, so much so that we have decided to invite your police chief to be one of four panel members to speak on crimes in Asia.
Noble, who is here as an observer of the 24th Asean Chiefs of Police conference, said the others invited to speak in Mexico were representatives from Africa, Europe and Latin America.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohd Bakri Omar, who is heading the Malaysian delegation to the four-day conference, said he would be accepting the Interpol invitation.
He viewed the invitation as an honour to the PDRM and Malaysia.
