The police are state security provider and play an important role in protecting the people and maintaining law and order in our community. However, the Royal Malaysian Police has long suffered an erosion of confidence among the Malaysian public due to allegations of corruption and abuses of power. In 2005, the Royal Commission of Inquiry led by Tun Dzaiddin has proposed 125 recommendations for the reform and modernisation of Royal Malaysian Police. 16 years on, some of the recommendations remains relevant. What’s the way forward for police reform in Malaysia? How can the operation and management of Royal Malaysian Police be enhanced in order carry out their tasks better while regaining the trusts from the public?
