Police salary to be discussed in detail, says Ismail Sabri

BERA: Salaries of police officers and personnel will be further discussed by the Home Ministry with the relevant ministries and agencies as the matter needs a more comprehensive study, says the Prime Minister.

Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the discussions would involve, among others, the Finance Ministry and the Public Service Department.

“The matter needs in-depth discussion because it involves finance,” he told Bernama at a press conference after attending the wearing of rank ceremony from DSP to Superintendent for Bera district police chief Mansor Samsudin here yesterday.

The ceremony was conducted by Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

Also promoted was Bera deputy district police chief DSP N. Kumaran from ASP to DSP.

Ismail Sabri said this in response to a recent media report that the low salary and allowance of police personnel, especially at the lower ranks, was the cause of them facing problems and getting into debt.

It is learnt that the last police salary review was in 2010.

He commended the police for their excellent performance as Covid-19 frontliners, while busy with their task of maintaining national security and public order.

Meanwhile, Ismail Sabri, who is Bera MP, brought good news to more than 150,000 residents in the constituency with the announcement of the construction of several new police stations and booths, and upgrading of existing ones.

He also announced an allocation of more than RM2mil for repair of police stations quarters.

“The increase in staff and new police stations will give confidence to the people of Bera in terms of security, as well as provide them with better service,” he added.
