The police will conduct a special intake exercise for the post of police constable grade YA1 involving non-Bumiputeras as well as Orang Asli constable grade YP1 for the community.
Bukit Aman Management Department director Ramli Din said the special recruitment would give the opportunity to any individual who has not scored a credit in Bahasa Melayu in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) to apply.
“The application for non-Bumiputeras is open for two weeks from March 18 to 31 via https://epengambilanpdrm.rmp.gov.my
“Priority will be given to non-Bumiputera applicants who can speak and write in Mandarin, Tamil or other mother tongues,” he told a special press conference in Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur, today.
He said the conditions set by the Public Service Department requiring applicants to have two credits including in Bahasa Melayu and a pass in four other subjects had been relaxed to attract more applicants.
Within six years of service, though, the personnel in question must re-sit the SPM Bahasa Melayu paper to obtain a credit.
“If during that period they are still not successful, the police will have no other option but to terminate their service,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ramli said the police and the Orang Asli Development Department would carry out a campaign to encourage the Orang Asli to fill the post of constable grade YP1.
“Roadshows will be carried out from May 14 to June 6 at the Orang Asli Development Offices throughout the peninsula, and application forms can be obtained there,” he said.
