KLANG: Selangor welcomes its second female OCPD, barely a month after the first female district police chief was appointed.Asst Comm Nurulhuda Salleh took over from ACP Mazelan Paijan as North Klang OCPD.
She was a principal assistant director at Bukit Aman’s Commercial Crimes Investigation Department.
Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Mazlan Mansor expressed his confidence in ACP Nurulhuda performing well in her new role.
“She is the right person to lead the North Klang district,” he said at the handing-over ceremony yesterday.
Comm Mazlan said ACP Nurulhuda’s appointment was proof that the Royal Malaysia Police, especially the Selangor contingent, practised inclusiveness by having more women in top posts.
“Credit will be given where it’s due, regardless of gender,” he said.
ACP Nurulhuda, who joined the police force in 1991, said she was honoured by the appointment.
“I will carry out my duties to the best of my abilities,” said the 48-year-old officer who hails from Sarikei, Sarawak.
On a separate matter, Comm Mazlan reminded all OCPDs to keep the public informed of the development of cases that had public interest.
“The public, especially the victim’s family, deserve to know the progress of the cases,” he added.
