GEORGE TOWN: The police have been making preparations since a year ago for the coming 13th-general election and they are ready in all aspects including the logistics to ensure a smooth polling process.
Bukit Aman Police Logistics Department director Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah said every aspect of essential equipment including cameras, video recorders, digital communication devices and patrol cars had been looked into in ensuring that security and public order were maintained.
"I believe if the government wants to dissolve the parliament within this short period,
the police have no problem as we are ready," he told reporters after launching High Profile Policing at Free School housing estate, here today.
At the function, which was also attended by Penang Police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi, Zulkifli handed over some aid to the less fortunate residents.
He would make visits to police contingents in every state to ensure equipment and facilities were provided for the comfort of officers in handling their daily tasks.
Meanwhile, Zulkifli hoped the government could announce a special budget for the police force just like what had been done in previous years in maintaining the work quality of policemen and officers.
"We understand the government is concerned about the police, so I believe the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) will surely allocate a special budget for the force," he said. -- BERNAMA
