I read today that our policemen are finally going to get some real gear for their work instead of those silly little badges and slogans they wear which do nothing more than make them look like under-fed security guards. From today, the IGP says, our policemen (except for the poor slobs breathing in carbon monoxide directing traffic) are going to be issued standard uniforms which will include communications devices, handcuffs, baton and pepper spray. In addition to their firearms I presume.
GREAT!!! It's about bloody time our men and women in blue get some decent treatment. If not in terms of salary then better equipment is a step in the right direction I say.
The police have announced a new motto too. Firm, Fair and Courteous. Not bad.
Then they also have a new badge. Which I presume they wear in place of the old one which said, Bersih, Cekap, Amanah. Or was it Saya Anti Rasuah? Anyway, the new badge says, "Integriti Amalan Kita".
I am wondering. Did Bukit Aman do a survey to find out how many police personnel understand the meaning of the word "Integriti"?
Bersih, Cekap, Amanah - great!
Saya Anti Rasuah - wonderful!
Both very easily understood. But "Integriti Amalan Kita"??? Huh?
