Too many policemen are in non-core police work

We have enough policemen. The total 106,000 policemen we have appears about right. This ratio of 1 policeman to 270 Malaysians is not far from the 1:250 that Interpol recommends. It appears however that we could deploy our police force much more effectively. 41% of our policemen are in management or administration. This works out to each manager/administrator managing fewer than two subordinates on average!

Let's get police officers back to active police work. Urge our Home Minister to redeploy police officers to better reflect the current conditions in Malaysia. TAKE ACTION: Send your letter to YB Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein now!


  1. It is not just the Police Force. The Government has to revamp or maybe even reinvent its human capital approach and planning. Plenty of papers and theories, little impeovement in practical terms.
