KUALA LUMPUR: The Home Ministry is looking to disband a few Bukit Aman task forces as part of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) restructuring efforts, says Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Home Minister said there is a proposal to discontinue these task forces, and he will make an official announcement when the matter is finalised.

“I received the first briefing on the restructuring of PDRM today. One of the proposals is to disband the task forces.

“I will announce it completely within one to two weeks, as we cannot rush it,” he told a press conference after attending the Bukit Aman Hari Raya Aidilfitri open house on Tuesday.

The PDRM restructuring effort also involves a few departments as well as staffing, added Muhyiddin.

“We want to transform the police force to ensure that it is respected by the masses.

“We want to ensure that the police force is an enforcement agency with high integrity and credibility,” he said.

Meanwhile, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the initial phase of the restructuring effort would involve three task forces within the Narcotic Crime Investigation Department and CID.

“The initial stage will involve Special Task Force for Anti-vice, Gaming and Gangsterism (Stagg), Special Task Force on Organised Crime (Stafoc), and Special Tactical Intelligence Narcotics Group (STING),” he said.
