ALOR SETAR – The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) want the government to view their application to improve their scheme of service including that involving the allowance of personnel working in the interior areas.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim today expressed his confidence the delivery system of PDRM to society would improve if the application for a review of its terms of services was agreed to by the government.
“Among the most important matters involved the review of allowances for policemen serving in the interior with no electricity and water supplies and other facilities,” he told a media conference after opening a conference of internal associations in PDRM here, today.
He said policemen who served in the interior only received an allowance equivalent to 10 per cent of their salary, compared to other public servants who received hardship allowance at a flat rate of RM1,500.
Noor Rashid asked the government to also extend to the policemen the flat rate of RM1,500. – BERNAMA
