IPOH, March 17 (Bernama) -- In conjunction with the 216th Police Day celebration on March 20, the Perak Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPk) has authorised several police officers and personnel to deliver a special sermon during Friday prayer in this state today.

At Masjid Sultan Idris Shah II here, Insp Razin Redzuan from the State Police Contingent Headquarters delivered the sermon wearing his uniform.

Through the sermon entitled “Police and the Community: Increasing Understanding, Establishing Cooperation”, Razin said the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) shoulder a very heavy responsibility to meet the targets set by the country, as well as the people’s expectations.

Noting the limitations faced by police personnel, he said the community should come forward and play an active role in assisting police duties, especially in enforcing the law and curbing criminal activities.

“The public can act as the eyes and ears of the police by cooperating and channelling information so that immediate action can be taken to prevent and curb crime,” he said.

Razin further said that last year began with great success when the Perak Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department made the largest seizure of ketamine worth over RM111 million on Jan 16.

He added that throughout 2022, the team set a record for seizing various types of drugs amounting to RM138 million.

“During the same period, the Perak Commercial Crime Investigation Department investigated 2,053 scam cases involving losses totalling RM100 million,” he said.

In the sermon, Razin listed four increasingly challenging tasks facing the police force, namely the spread of fake news; smuggled drugs; repeated drug addiction and hardcore addicts; as well as the evolution of crime.

Therefore, he suggested several ways for the community to help ease the police’s duties, including by immediately reporting any criminal activity and making full use of all the applications developed by PDRM.

The congregants later performed the Friday prayer led by the State Mosque grand Imam Abdul Farid Salleh.

Among other mosques that saw police personnel deliver the Friday sermon today were Masjid Jamek Kampung Bukit Bertam, Masjid Khairiah Sayong Lembah, Masjid Jamek Pengkalan Hulu and Masjid Al-Ghufraniah Sungai Siput.
