New motto, badgeInspector-General of Police Musa Hassan today announced that the police motto of Mesra, Cepat dan Betul (Friendly, Efficient and Accurate) has been replaced with Tegas, Adil dan Berhemah (Firm, Fair and with Integrity). Musa said the change is designed to satisfy current circumstances and public expectations. “The police need to be tegas (firm) in their duties in order to be efficient and respected. Tegas does not mean use of force, but firm commitment in fulfilling our duties and responsibilities,” he explained. In 1994, the police force adopted the Cepat dan Betul motto. This was updated to Mesra, Cepat dan Betul motto in 1999. Musa added that, from today, the police would replace their Saya Anti-Rasuah (I am against corruption) badge with one that reads Integrity Amalan Kita (We practice integrity).
If anything that makes me fall off my chair is that they are CHANGING the badge. It makes me wonder if the Saya Nanti-Rasuah thinggy actually work... well... for one, the police can sure come up with nice slogans.
Malaysian Joe says, "Anti Rasuah la... not Nanti..." "ooops... I smell some badge maker gonna make some money"
