Budget 2024: Funds will be fully utilised, says IGP

KUALA LUMPUR: Bukit Aman will ensure that the allocation for the police in Budget 2024 will be fully utilised with good governance, says Tan Sri Razarudin Husain.

The Inspector-General of Police said the police force is grateful for the allocation and incentives announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

"The RM19bil allocated to the Home Ministry will spur efforts to strengthen public order and preserve the nation's peace and security.

"The RM20mil for the National Scam Response Centre (NSRC) compared to the RM10mil allocated last year will increase the centre's role in curbing scams while the seven planes and helicopters for the police will improve our readiness in safeguarding the country," he said in a statement on Friday (Oct 13).

The country's top cop also lauded the RM2.4bil allocated for building, maintaining and repairing quarters of civil servants, including police quarters.

"It is a good move towards taking care of the welfare of civil servants, especially police personnel.

"Funds to increase the number of K9 tracking dogs and appointing community rangers among police, army and orang asli veterans is a timely move as well," he added.

Various initiatives for enforcement agencies, including increasing the disaster ex-gratia scheme and one off payments for civil servants will surely benefit them, especially police personnel.

"We will ensure the funds will benefit all in the police force and we are committed to give the best service based on integrity and good governance.
