New JPJ chief: Employee integrity always a priority

JPJ director-general Datuk Zailani Hashim.

KUALA LUMPUR: The integrity of Road Transport Department (JPJ) personnel is and will always be a priority, says newly appointed JPJ director-general Datuk Zailani Hashim.

"I hope to elevate the department's positive image to a higher level and improve integrity among our personnel.

"We will do so without forsaking collaboration with other enforcement departments and agencies," he said in a statement after paying a courtesy visit to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief commissioner Datuk Seri Azam Baki on Monday (Dec 29).

Zailani said JPJ would also practice an open door policy and welcomes any recommendations from the public.

"This is to improve the department's effectiveness in service delivery to the people," he added.

Meanwhile, Azam said the MACC welcomed JPJ's commitment to integrity.

"We will cooperate closely through the placement of a Certified Integrity Officer (CeIO) at the JPJ's integrity division.

"Strategic cooperation between the two departments were established long ago through joint operations such as Ops Clone Cars and on driving test scams," he said.

Both parties also agreed to review their note of cooperation, which was established in 2017 to improve and strengthen relations between the two departments.
