NO MEANS NOOO, says the nation’s top cop.
Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Abdul Hamid warned his officers to stay clear of nightclubs and entertainment parlours in order to avoid certain… temptations…
But whyyyy? Policemen need to enjoy too what?
Well, according to the big cop in charge, officers are strictly banned from entering, let alone participating at any entertainment parlors; bars, nightclubs, gambling dens and most definitely prostitution houses.
The prohibition was apparently placed in order to curb the ongoing issues of corruption infecting the force.
Explaining that not all bribes are made out in cash, the IGP disclosed that several officers in the country were regularly seduced by certain parties with obviously ulterior motives.
“There are taukes who offer police officers free sessions.”
“There are even birthday parties hosted for the officers at these clubs. Can you imagine that? A police officer celebrating his birthday for free at a nightclub. That is bribery!”via Sinar Harian
Abdul Hamid also mentioned that this strict doctrine was not something new to the force.
The PDRM had observed similar rules for nearly 20 years, but the enforcement of the matter, however, had clearly been lacking…
So with Abdul Hamid at the helm, the IGP had instructed the Standard Compliance Department (Jabatan Integriti dan Pematuhan Standard), or JIPS to keep a watchful eye on the issue, where any officers caught disobeying the order will be brought forth to face harsh punishment.
But that’s not all… The IGP also reminded his officers to also be mindful of the company that they keep.
Abdul Hamid also advised officers to stay away from any bad apples; individuals, celebrities and personalities who are tied to certain vices like drug use and gambling.
Whelp it looks like our boys and girls in the police force better leave the party life behind before the get themselves into trouble…
