KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah gracing the 216th Police Day Celebration parade on Monday (March 20) has a great impact on the morale of the nation's police force, says the Home Minister.
Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, who described His Majesty's attendance as a precious and meaningful moment, said it encouraged members of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) to be more competent, committed and professional in carrying out their duties.

Saifuddin also expressed his gratitude to Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani and members of PDRM for their service, which he described as exceptional especially when the country was going through a phase of political instability previously. – Bernama
