The New Inspector- General of Police - Tan Sri Musa Hassan.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan will succeed Tan Sri Mohd Bakri Omar as Inspector- General of Police on Tuesday. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong has consented to the appointment on the advice of the Prime Minister following a recommendation by the Police Commission.

Internal Security Ministry secretary-general and Police Commission secretary Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said in a statement Thursday that Mohd Bakri's contract of service would end on Monday.

Musa, 55, who graduated in law in the United Kingdom, started his service in the force as an inspector on Nov 11, 1969. The courses he had attended included leadership and management, intelligence procurement, drug enforcement and narcotic law.

Among the positions Musa has held are prosecuting officer (in Melaka); assistant director of the Bukit Aman Narcotic Division; lecturer at the Kuala Kubu Baharu Police College; training officer at Bukit Aman and deputy assistant director of Prosecution/Criminal Law in Bukit Aman.

He was also Criminal Investigation Department (CID) deputy director I in 2001; Johor chief police officer with the rank of Deputy Commissioner in 2003 and CID director in 2004. Musa was appointed Deputy Inspector-General of Police last year.

Musa expressed thanks to the government for the trust placed in him, when approached by reporters after the launch of the Police Emergency Report System, here. Mohd Bakri officiated at the function.

When delivering his speech, Mohd Bakri was visibly moved by the fact that he would retire on Monday. "Today's ceremony is the last I will officiate in my capacity (as the Inspector-General of Police)," he said, putting on a smile.

After the function, Mohd Bakri declined comment on his retirement when approached by reporters as he headed for his car. "No, I'm leaving," he said as he closed the car door.

Mohd Bakri, who has a Bachelor of Arts degree and hails from Manjung, Perak, was appointed Inspector General of Police on Nov 5, 2003, succeeding Tan Sri Norian Mai. He joined the force as a Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) on Jan 1, 1971.

Under his administration, many changes were instituted by the government, including setting up the Royal Commission to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Royal Malaysia Police and the proposed setting up of an independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission to upgrade the police image and improve its service.


**** I hope that under Musa relations between the police, the government and the public would show a marked improvement.

Musa's opinion on: illegal street races.

In order to reduce snatch thief’s, I hope Tan Sri Musa Hassan could look at the "do & don't" of motorist.

1) The plate no must be standardized. I notice some motorist plate no were too exceptionally small to be seen from a distance.

2) Motorist should not wear full gear helmet such that their face can't be seen.

With the above item 1 & 2, motorist will tend to snatch as they will never be caught.

Recently, I saw a motorist behaving suspicious. They have full face helmet, driving around the shop lot in Bukit Mayan Emus. I tried to take down their registration plate but unable to do so due to the number is exceptionally too small.

3) Motor should be banned from all parks. Park is meant for human to exercise but not for motor riding.
