TAWAU, (June 5) — Sabah police commissioner, Datuk Hamza Taib has called on the state’s police officers and other personnel to raise their level of integrity and meet the requirements contained in the National Integrity Plan.
He said they must continue to have in themselves, positive values with no let-up.
“We must make again our pledge to be clean, efficient, trustworthy, dedicated and sincere in carrying out our duties.
“Integrity and ethics must be upheld in public service, particularly in the police force, to prevent us from getting involved in corruption,” he said at the launching of the ‘Reject Corruption’ campaign of the Eastern Sabah Zone police contingent, here, Thursday.
His speech text was read out at the launch by Tawau district police chief, ACP Awang Besar Dullah.
Hamza said ethics and moral values were prerequisites in providing clean, efficient and trustworthy public service.
“Indeed the struggle in upholding integrity and stemming corruption is a noble one, so we must remember that our present endeavour in this aspect will determine a better future for us all.”
Besides that, he said, members of the police force must also be courteous and show other good qualities when serving the public. – BERNAMA
