KUALA LUMPUR: Over 360 members of the city police contingent have been honoured by Rotary Malaysia through The Pride of Workmanship Award here.

Rotary Malaysia's immediate past district governor Datuk Bindi Rajasegaran said they presented 369 awards to police personnel in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday (July 6).

She also presented the Rotary's Four-Way Test plaque to deputy city police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Yahaya Othman at city police headquarters here.

"We decided to give the awards to the police this year to recognise their efforts in keeping us and the nation safe.

"They are the unsung heroes who deserve some recognition for their tireless work.

"Every minute of every day, policemen and women work hard to protect us. From routine duties to anti-terrorism operations, they take risks daily to protect the public," she said at the awards ceremony.

She added that Rotary's Four-Way Test was used by Rotarians worldwide as a moral code for personal and business relationships which synchronises with the police profession and ethics.

"These plaques will be placed at 157 police stations nationwide," she said, adding that while 369 city police personnel received the award, there were over 2,000 Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) recipients nationwide.

The Pride of Workmanship Award which was introduced in February 1980 has been given each year since to a selection of vocations.

On Jan 13, 2018, the award was presented to KTM Berhad staff.

Bindi said the award sought to encourage much-needed pride in personal performance at the workplace and enabled Rotary clubs to work with business owners, corporations and multinationals to help employees and business people achieve their goal of job satisfaction.

DCP Yahaya said the award was meaningful to the members of the police force.

"I appreciate the recognition that Rotary Malaysia is giving us through this award," he said.
