华总支持警方重启特别招募非土著警察计划,并呼吁更多华裔子弟响应,为社会和人民服务。


华总会长丹斯里吴添泉 表示,他过去率领华总领导层在吉隆坡武吉阿曼警察总部与全国总警长丹斯里阿都哈密交流时,曾经反映应鼓励更多包括华裔在内的非土著加入警队问题,获得总警长的认同与支持。

他说,多年来华裔子弟参与警察部队的人数或比率极低,有待提升。

他说,国内有不少华裔申请成为辅警,拥有一定或初步的经验和兴趣,这也是项让人鼓舞和现象:“但很多华裔辅警都属业余或副业性质,要他们放弃本身专业申请做全职警察相信不容易。”

他针对全国警察行政部总监拿督蓝利丁今天在武吉阿曼警察总部宣布,警方重启特别招募非土著警察计划发表文告表示支持,形容华总与警方看法一致,即鼓励更多华裔子弟和非土著参与警队服务。


吴添泉说,如果应邀或需要,华总也准备在必要时与警方配合或合作,以鼓励更多华裔子弟参与警队服务。


“华总也随时乐意成为华社或华团,与警方沟通的桥梁,传达资讯,通过警民合作,防范犯罪,并共同维护社会治安。”


吴添泉说,一般上,华裔成为公仆现象最普遍的是教育界(教师),但军警界比率却很少,这是值得关注和值得加强的。


根据统计,在2004年至2013年,各族在警队的比例出现极大失衡,华裔从当年的2.5%降至1.77%;印裔从3.7%至降3.3%;巫裔是唯一提高者,从78.3%提高至81%,其他种族则从15.5%降至13.93%。

警方曾在2014进行了一项特别招募华裔警察行动,虽然接获3000人报名,但最终只有234名通过面试和完成6个月集训成为警察。


在2016年,警方在全国招聘200个警长职位时,获得4万人踊跃申请,但华裔却寥寥无几。时任总警长丹斯里卡立有感而发:“我们已专为华社开设招募活动,但反应并不如预期,我们不能把警队塑造成只有马来人的警队。”

吴添泉说,这一次重启的招募非土著计划中,一些条件被适度放宽,应可取得鼓励作用,希望能够获得积极反应。


他表示,华总全力支持警方在致力维持国家治安上所作出的积极努力与付出,也鼓励更多华裔子弟加入警界,成为警队一份子。


Huazong urges Chinese youths to join the police force


The Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong) has urged Chinese youths in the country to actively respond to the Royal Malaysian Police Force’s (PDRM) special recruitment drive to encourage more non-Bumiputeras to join the force as constables.

Its President, Tan Sri T.C Goh urged this while welcoming the statement by Federal Police Management director Datuk Seri Ramli Din that the PDRM decided to conduct a special two-weeks recruitment drive, starting March 18, following low non-Bumiputera participation in its recent intake.


Speaking at Bukit Aman today, Ramli also announced that in this special intake, the police have decided to relax the intake requirements where, the applicants are only required to have one credit, in any of the SPM subjects to be eligible for the constable position.


He acknowledged that among the obvious reasons many non-Bumiputera fail to qualify is because they don’t have at least two credits including for Bahasa Malaysia in their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination.


In a response today, Goh noted that he had during a courtesy call on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador previously, proposed such measures so as to encourage more non-Bumiputeras, Chinese included, to join the police force.


An ex police officer himself, Goh acknowledged that the ratio of Chinese serving in the police force currently is rather insignificant still and more efforts are needed to boost it.


He said, while it was encouraging that some Chinese youths have joined the police force as “police bantuan”(Auxiliary Cop), on a part time basis, it was not easy for them to give up their full-time profession to serve as a full-time cop.


He continued that, if needed or invited, Huazong is more than willing to cooperate with the police to encourage more Chinese youths to join the police force.


He added that Huazong would continue to play its role as the ‘bridge’ and ‘conduit’ between the Chinese community and the police, and to disseminate relevant information on fighting crime and to maintain law and order.


Goh further acknowledged that it was more common for Chinese Malaysians to join the civil service via the education sector, as teachers, but their participation in the armed forces and the police force is still low and warrants more attention and encouragement from the government.


Official statistics revealed that, between 2004 and 2013, the police force has experienced great imbalance in its racial composition, with notable decline in the percentage of Chinese police personnel from 2.5% to 1.77%; Indian from 3.7% dropping to 3.3%; the Malay police personnel are the only race with significant increment from 78.3% previously to 81%, while the other ethnic groups too had dropped from 15.5% to 13.93%.


In 2014, the police conducted a special recruitment for Chinese police constables and received 3,000 applicants. However, only 234 recruits successfully completed the six months training to become a police.


In 2016, the police conducted a nationwide recruitment for 200 police inspectors, and there were very few Chinese among the 40,000 applicants.

The then IGP, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar even lamented over the discouraging response from Chinese youths towards the said recruitment, besides cautioning that the police force should not become a “Malay only police force”.


Goh thus hoped with relaxation of the intake requirement in this special recruitment drive, Chinese youths in the country would treat it as a great opportunity to serve the country and to actively respond to the recruitment drive.
