“We also wanted to know the motive and objective of making the recording using her TikTok account,” Razarudin was quoted as saying by Berita Harian.
He was commenting on a viral video of a police officer making a live TikTok video during a raid in an entertainment center which drew the criticism of netizens.
So kalau berpaku memang boleh ea buat live time tengah operasi? Taktau pulak. Masa aku kerja dulu anggota post gambar tengah bertugas kena tindakan keras. Maybe zaman dah berubah, aku pun taktau arahan terkini mungkin pegawai saja dibenarkan kot bersosial media time operasi/tugas pic.twitter.com/qLz9aIlJ73— ₆⁶₆ςιδ²³₆⁶₆ Seller iPhone!

In the one-minute and 38sec video, the Assistant Supt is seen talking about a police raid at an unknown entertainment outlet.
She also told her followers to keep following her update and wish that she could reach 100,000 followers on her TikTok account.
Razarudin said the department would issue a circular on the use of social media among police officers and personnel today.
This is not the first time Bukit Aman had issued a directive to bar its personnel from sharing social media content of themselves while on duty.
The same circular was issued in August 2020, aimed at preventing negative perceptions or criticism that could tarnish the image of the police force.
