He said the move was appropriate as the grading for the salary and posts of
police officers had not been reviewed for the past 30 years although the system
of establishment for staff in the other government departments had been improved
Thus, he said the ministry would instruct the Royal Malaysia Police to
provide a proposal paper on the improvement of the grades as a whole to be
presented to the Public Service Department (PSD).
Abu Seman also said that the ministry and the PSD also reviewed the salary
scheme and special allowances for junior officers in the Prisons Department.
