Bukit Aman: RM300 allowance for 70 JIPS detectives

KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) will provide an allowance of RM300 per month to 70 of its rank-and-file personnel who have been picked as detectives of the Bukit Aman’s Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS).

JIPS director, Datuk Zamri Yahya said this had been handed over to the PDRM Management Department to be referred to the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) and the Public Service Department (JPA).

‘’The Inspector-General of Police (Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador) has agreed on the giving of the RM300 allowance which is pending approval of the KDN and JPA.

“Giving a monthly allowance of RM300 to those picked is an incentive to motivate them because they have to investigate many JIPS cases involving policemen and officers involved in misconduct,“ he told Bernama after attending the Bank Rakyat Sinar Aidiladha programme at the Bukit Aman Mosque, here.

To date, Zamri said the JIPS case investigation work had proceeded as usual although they had not received the allowance.

“Before they can be upgraded to detectives, they need to undergo a three-month detective transition course,“ he said.

On July 13, Bernama reported that 70 rank-and-file personnel from JIPS Bukit Aman would be upgraded to detectives to enable them to investigate officers and policemen involved in misconduct.

Earlier, in the programme, Bank Rakyat feted 1,830 frontline staff and zakat recipients through the distribution of sacrificial (worship) meat in conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidiladha celebration in a new way. - Bernama
