KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 3, 2015:
The public can lodge a report at the nearest police station regardless of where the incident took place, said Datuk Pahlawan Zulkifli Abdullah, director of Management of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM).
He said it was wrong for any policeman to refuse accepting a report from members of the public as police had made it convenient to file police reports anywhere.
“There is no such restriction any more since 2002. If it is still happening now, something is wrong somewhere.
“If they are told to make a police report at another police station, the public can ask to see the officer in charge of the police station.
“They can also lodge a complaint via the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) website.”
Zulkifli made the comment in response to a question from the floor during a roundtable meeting of the National Key Results Area (NKRA) on crime prevention at the Sime Darby Convention Centre here today.
He said public complaints that they were told to make their reports elsewhere could have arisen due to the mistakes of a small number of policemen.
