KUCHING: One hundred 91 officers and men of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) took part in a parade to celebrate the 214th Police Day at the Sarawak contingent headquarters (IPK) here this morning (March 25).

Addressing the parade, Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Aidi Ismail said although this year’s celebration themed ‘Polis Dan Masyarakat Berpisah Tiada’, was held on a small scale under the new normal, it was nevertheless a significant event in the annals of the police force.

“I would like to express my greatest appreciation to all members of the force for putting their life on the line, for community wellbeing and preserving the peace.

“I highly praise the sacrifices made and am proud with the spirit displayed the police personnel during the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.

Aidi reminded members of the force to remain committed and determined to provide good services, for the sake of religion, race and country.

He also read a message from the Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

At the event, Aidi presented certificates of excellence to 10 police officers.

Also present at the anniversary parade were Deputy Commissioner Datuk Fisol Salleh, head of Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department SAC Datuk Muhammed Hasbullah Ali, head of Crime Investigation Department SAC Lukas Aket and head of other departments in the state police force.
