Narcotics Department director Commissioner Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh will retire in April followed by Mohamad Fuzi in May.

The retirement plan was part of police procedure, Noor Rashid told reporters after attending the closing ceremony of the police counsellor colloquial programme at the police college here today.
