Public servants, especially those entrusted with law enforcement, must have a good sense of self, be committed to their tasks, and maintain preparedness and readiness in dealing with challenges to ensure safety and the well-being of the populace.
This was said by Deputy Permanent Secretary (Safety and Welfare) at the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) Nor Hamidah binti Haji Hamidon at the guidelines workshop to implement law enforcement yesterday at the ministry’s building in the capital.
She added, “Thus, the ministry believes officers and staff must receive training on a continuous basis.
“With workshops and training like this, the ministry will produce enforcement officers who are authoritative, efficient, effective and have high integrity.
“I hope participants will be able to take the opportunity to improve their capacity and potential, as well as identify the gaps in terms of procedure, communication and logistics to strengthen national security.”
Some 40 officers from departments under the MoHA attended the workshop run by the Immigration and National Registration Department which focusses enforcement-related areas, such as operational procedures, investigation and prosecution.
The workshop covered law, power of appointment, case statistics, operations implementation, opening of investigation papers, and case analysis.
It also aimed to improve the understanding and skills of officers and staff empowered to carry out law enforcement; expose officers and staff carrying out the role and implementation of enforcement; and ensure that officers and staff will apply the act and regulations according to the jurisdiction provided.
