KUALA LUMPUR: The police Department of Integrity and Compliance Standards (JIPS) has received many complaints from the public on them not discharging their responsibilities as law enforcers.
Bukit Aman JIPS director Zamri Yahya said these complaints included police chiefs not acting against drug trafficking and gambling syndicates despite reports lodged against them.
He said there were complaints that these officers had ignored reports lodged by the public and they allowed these activities in their respective areas.
“There were claims of district police chiefs conspiring with drug trafficking and gambling syndicates, and getting rewards for that.
“However, when we checked, no such reports had been lodged in the affected areas,” he said.
Zamri said the issue of misconduct and integrity among members of the police force continued to be raised by the public despite disciplinary action being taken against the identified offenders since 1986.
Meanwhile, Bukit Aman Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department director Razarudin Husain said he would not compromise with any officer or person who associated with drug syndicates.
“I cannot deny there are policemen involved in selling ketum. We have received reports on this and these individuals will be charged in court,” he said.
