Duty comes first, KL chief cop reminds newly promoted policemen

KUALA LUMPUR: The police have been reminded to conduct themselves with integrity as they are under constant scrutiny.

KL police chief Comm Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said police were working inside glass houses as they are always being watched by the public.

"They must ensure that their decisions and actions follow the law and always conduct themselves with integrity," he said in his speech after attending a police promotions ceremony at the police headquarters here on Wednesday (Oct 18).

A total of 32 officers were promoted to the rank of Asst Superintendent while 12 were promoted to Deputy Superintendent.

Allaudeen also said the top brass do not hand out promotions easily.

"Only those who are capable of taking on bigger responsibilities are promoted so make sure that you always perform well.

"Don't be afraid to make difficult decisions. Remember that your job is not about popularity. It is about carrying out your duty," he said.

Comm Allaudeen reminded those promoted that they have a responsibility to their subordinates as well.

"A leader's success is measured by the success of his subordinates. Your rank is not just about the stars and stripes on your shoulders," he said.
