Shabby computers, printers and vehicles are some of the logistical limitations which impede police work, a public hearing in Penang on the Independent Police Complaints of Misconduct Commission (IPCMC) Bill 2019 heard today.
Lack of stationery like papers for police reports also added to their plight and on many occasions, the officers had to dip into their own pockets to purchase the items for their use.
"We are happy that there we are probed for bribery but what about some of us who have to fork out our own money to buy office equipment and stationery?" asked one officer.
"We are often laughed at especially by tourists from Europe and Japan who have come to our stations to lodge complaints," said one police representative at the hearing which was held at the Federal Agency Building on Jalan Anson.
