THE Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) will be organising monthly seminars to remind and motivate its officers and personnel to be disciplined when carrying out their duties.

The seminars will be held throughout the year and will involve officers and staff from all RBPF departments and stations.

In an interview with The Brunei Times yesterday during the second Integrity Seminar at the RBPF Headquarters, ASP Mohd Mezudy Afril Mohd Mazlan, head of the training unit for the Senior Officers Training Division, said the seminars aim to further instil discipline and honesty in all RBPF officers and staff.

“These talks are to remind the officers and personnel and reinforce their attitude toward their work to get them inspired to perform with a new refreshed attitude,” he said.

ASP Mohd Mezudy Afril said the seminar could also be one of the solutions to avoid integrity issues amongst the officers and personnel as they must carry out their tasks with discipline and honesty.

He encouraged the participants to get inspired and apply what they have learnt when carrying out their duties.

In a separate interview, Hj Ali Yusri Abdul Ghafor, head of the Counseling and Career Guidance Section under the Department of Schools at the Ministry of Education, said police officers and personnel are role models to the public as they are one of the authorities who assist the people.

“People look at the police as role models. Being role models, people can’t accept it if they do something wrong,” he said.

Hj Ali Yusri, who delivered a talk to the participants, said the seminars will remind them to avoid doing something wrong as it would affect the public’s trust in the police.

He said that discipline, integrity and honesty are important to maintain the public’s trust. These three values will act as a barrier to becoming engaged in acts of corruption for officers and personnel.

“The police have to make sure they continue to take care of the people. The police are our friends, and the police must maintain that friendship with the public,” he said.

Hj Ali Yusri said the seminars will also focus on other factors such as the officers’ and personnel’s teamwork abilities and their integrity with their family, their career and themselves.

During the seminar yesterday, 106 officers and staff attended the talk and took part in teamwork activities.
