Some 112,000 cops to be mobilised during GE13
KUALA LUMPUR: Some 112,000 police personnel will be mobilised during 13th general election, said Datuk Muhammad Fuad Abu Zarim, the Deputy Director of Internal Security and Public Order Department (PGA/Border Management/International Airport Security).
The police personnel comprising various ranks from all branches of PDRM are currently undergoing training, including practical training (Ex Ballot III) held Sunday and Monday.
Muhammad Fuad said they had gone through a series of training since early this year to prepare mentally and physically for the general election.
"They have been through two training series, the first series is in the form of table talk or discussions about their assignments.
"The second series is in the form of discussions and action, and the third series (Ex Ballot III) is performed via live exercise in the field," he told Bernama when contacted Sunday.
Muhammad Fuad said the third training series would only be held in Perak as it is one of the bigger states in the country.
"A total of 280 Bukit Aman personnel will conduct and monitor the training in Perak. The other states will only undergo second series training." - Bernama
