Some cops giving bribes to pass exams, says IGP

IGP Abdul Hamid Bador says police will be creating a special system to prevent third parties from tampering with the exam results.

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have received reports that some officers and personnel have given bribes to third parties to pass exams and get promotions, Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador said.

The bribes ranged from RM4,000 to RM10,000.

“I will never tolerate this and will take action against any officer or staff who gives or takes bribes to get a pass in the internal examinations of the police force.

“Therefore, police will create a special system to prevent third parties from accessing and changing the results of the promotion examinations,” he told Bernama in Bukit Aman here.

Hamid said the system, which will have high-security features, would be handled directly by the Bukit Aman Management Department director.

“This is because every examination conducted by the police force must have a screening and it must be conducted with full discipline, integrity and trust,” he said.

“A few years ago, there was such a case involving an insider and a police trainee. They were detained and action taken.

“That case involved an instructor who was offering detective positions.

“He arranged the position for a person who was still a recruit at that time,” he said.
