Police launch anti-corruption campaign


KUALA LUMPUR: Police have renewed efforts to fight corruption with a move to educate the public on the evils of graft.

Car windshield stickers containing anti-corruption messages, along with information such as hotline numbers, were distributed to motorists in a campaign recently jointly organised with the Performance Manage­ment and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU).

The campaign was launched at the Jalan Duta toll plaza on Chinese New Year Eve.

This move is in support of efforts under the Government Trans­formation Programme (GTP)’s National Key Results Area (NKRA) in fighting corruption.

At the launch, Senior Assistant Commissioner Hashim Abdul Jalil said the campaign was intended to promote awareness not just to the public but also law enforcers on the importance in rejecting bribes.

Hashim said the awareness campaign would be concentrated in Selangor, Penang, Johor, Perak and Pahang as the level of corruption was found to be higher in those states.

The public could contact the police through its 24-hour hotline at +60-3-2266 3333 / +60-3-2266 3444 or visit the website www.rmp.gov.my to report any misconduct by the police, especially those involving bribery.

According to Hashim, all reports will be investigated and action taken.

Hashim also said the initiative would be reviewed in six months to determine its effectiveness.
