Police seek to expedite purchase of body cameras


SUBANG JAYA (Bernama): The Royal Malaysia Police has requested the Home Ministry to expedite the tender offer process for the procurement of body cameras for the use of police personnel in the field.

Bukit Aman Logistics and Technology Department director Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said his department had received positive feedback from the ministry on this matter.

"Hopefully, it can be implemented by the end of May or in June," he told reporters after visiting the roadblock at Subang toll plaza here Thursday (May 13).

He said the tenders would then go through an evaluation process by a technical committee before being selected by the tender procurement board at the ministry to issue a letter of acceptance to the selected firm.

The government had previously approved an allocation of RM30mil under the 12th Malaysia Plan to purchase body cameras for the use of police personnel.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said this was to protect police personnel from being slandered by criminals or irresponsible parties.

In the meantime, Mazlan said there was a sufficient number of tents and clinical equipment for the welfare and comfort of personnel working in the field during the movement control order from May 12 to June 7. - Bernama
