KUALA LUMPUR, 25 March 2009: The Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) are looking at having two more deputy Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and six new departments as part of the restructuring of the force, said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan.
He said it was to further strengthen the force and would be implemented as soon as the Public Service Department (PSD) gave its approval.
“I have discussed this with the PSD director-general and Chief Secretary to the government and a paper on it has been submitted to them. If there no obstacles, we can implement the measures soon,” he told reporters at the Police Training Centre here today.
He said the two additional deputy IGP posts, which were still at the evaluation stage, were important to enable the Police to combat crime more effectively.
With three deputy IGPs, one could focus on operations, one on administration and the other on intelligence, he said.
According to Musa, the restructuring would entail transformation of the force from the federal headquarters to district police level.
He said RMP also planned to build a police training centre in each state to meet its training needs.
He added the RMPs vehicle fleet was given a further boost today when it received 25 Mitsubishi Evolution X (Evo-10) cars and 426 Honda ST 1300 motorcycles. — Bernama
