Federal Traffic Police Chief SAC Nooryah Md Anvar, An Exemplary Police Officer.
Her very much hands-on tackling of the many problems besetting Malaysian road transport and the belligerent riding and driving population is slowly paying off. Already there are cries from those who expected discounts on their existing fines which apparently she had a big say in vetoing. And yesterday Puan Nooryah showed what stern stuff she is made of when she herself personally booked two cars in two separate incidents in Rawang. None of the 'technically right' 'morally wrong' nonsense from this officer. That bullshit is for politicians like Toyo.
At a time when the new IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan is showing he means business especially with the recent 'lateral' transfer of some deadwood and corrupt officers as well as the promotion of deserving ones, he needs all the assistance he can get from efficient subordinates like SAC II Nooryah.
But alas it is not going to be an easy task as the force has for too long been immersed in a culture of inefficiency and incompetency. The lackadaisical and laissez-faire attitude toward their duties especially at the level of the rank and file will take much hard work to overcome.
And as if to prove the point, convicts yet again escaped from a police lock-up yesterday. The NST report is as follows-:
Police are looking for two convicts believed to have escaped from the Dungun Police Station early yesterday morning. During a routine police inspection at 6.25 am, police noticed that three inmates, who shared the same cell, were missing, and the grills were cut open.
The trio, aged 40, 22, and 20, were serving time for charges of breaking and entering, a drug addict and assault respectively. The youngest inmate was re-arrested at noon, not far from the police station by policemen patrolling the area.
State Police Chief SAC I Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said police have set up road blocks and increased patrolling in Dungun. He advised the public to keep a look-out for the duo, who were clad in their orange jumpsuits, and inform police at 09-848 2222 and 09-6246 222.
So it's still a long way before we can see a significant improvement in our men in blue. But leading the fight for effective management of law and order is our lady in blue SAC II Nooryah Md Anvar.
