    From the news report I learn a new word today ~ eksesais.

    In this context wouldn't the word usaha be a better choice?

    Read my post in the "number plate with white star " thread on inferiority complex..

    http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/uploa...d-number-plate

    These pathetic apanama also have acquired such syndrome, some are in the acute state including those in the dbp..

    So, no surprise "usaha" got no style and need a whiter word like "eksesais" to syok sendiri...

    Does anyone know whether they take Chinese above 28 years old ?
    It seems that they only restrict to 18-28 yo

    If not mistaken, its always been that requirement for new recruits.
    Above that, find another job lah!...
    If way above 28..I'm sure many forumers here or retirees have rocket qualifications or experience, can take over top posts and put PDRM in order, so that you flers need not attempt to bribe any officer to get off! DO NOT PASS GO!.. GO TO JAIL! Deserve it!

    Why must go as new recruit ? Can't older Chinese go in as inspector and higher post ?

    Recruit points to new intake. Depending on qualifications, could be placed higher or other than constable rank. I believe its the same for the armed forces.
    I reckon PDRM are looking for more Chinese to strengthen the force to objective and purpose, which include to fill other departments needed to fulfil...engineering, IT, etc.. not just constables patrolling your streets.

    In the 60s & early 70s, there were a lot of Chinese in the Police Force.

    Of course many were sidelined & many left & no new ones were recruited.

    Yes, this Police Force is currently over-represented by 1Race.

    Look at the mess now.

    A close friend in KK, Sabah house was burglarized recently & he lost a big safe.

    Inside the safe were cash, jewelleries & important documents.

    Of course, he reported & after a week, nothing was found.

    Then he approached a member of the Force & offered him RM$10,000/= in cash saying he was not interested in the cash/etc in the safe but all he wanted was his documents.

    Within 24 hrs, they found his safe for him.

    Such is the state in the force

    Actually the higher officers in PDRM are more comfortable using English. Probably partly due to study trips overseas and of course their involvement with the laws which are all English based

    Why Chinese bother to apply and join? It is literally a dead end job.

    C'mon...the higher officers are likely and presumably ENGLISH EDUCATED OLD SKOOL..possibly same like lots of us mid aged or senior flers here...more comfortable using English most of the time. This forum could have been in Bahasa but.....I thought so..
    Why bother?...its primarily WHY and that mindset that made it obvious its overrepresented by 1race..amongst other perceptions on the shortcomings or ills of all sorts.

    Look..I'm not here to side PDRM, tell people its good to join or whatever..just my personal view since this topic is brought up.

    You have a point there Lee, on one hand we skewered PDRM left, right and centre as being corrupt and inefficient etc and of 1 race and yet when the force realized the racial imbalance and recognized the need for multi-racil make-up for a better force, many hammer the Chinese for joining... apa lagi Cina mahu?

    I was with the police cadets movement in UM i.e. ROTU or Reserved Officers Training Unit for 4 years and attained the rank of Assistant Superintendent (ASP) and would have joined the force but I guess the offer of a Toyota Corolla 1.3GL from a Swiss Food Co was too hard for a young man then to resist... maybe the reason I joined ROTU was because I could play with the M16 rifles then... it was something new back then haha...

    You will be surprised
    Let us not talk about joining at the lowest level ... that is a dead end job for anyone regardless of race.
    But for the Chinese I know who have joined the police, they moved up the ranks to pretty high positions.

    But why are we trapped again on racial divides?
    It is about time we shed such negative outlooks,and if someone is interested to join, do encourage them....

    And don't think about being a millionaire.... if someone aims for that, then by all means study hard and get into the better academic line or go into some other profession which provides the potential to make more money

    But for the normal 95% of the population, if you do not have the ability nor the potential and want a job to bring home the bacon, then what is wrong with joining the police force?

    Just wondering aloud why Chinese are eager to apply and proud to be part of civil forces especially in blue uniform in Singapore to China. US to UK today where they provide service to serve and protect? Why not in Malaysia?

    Ironic why Balik Kampung campaign to entice overseas Malaysians especially the professionals to reverse the brain drain is not working well? iSayman.

    Most of all, I am surprised why my Indian class mate is not happy with his upgraded position of being an ranking officer during Nasi Kandar lunch in Ipoh last month where he also commented on the new drive intake of getting more Chinese to join the force. Our mutual friend who used to be his head commanding officer also shake head too during the lunch talk 3 talk 4. Why ah?

    Racial divides? This topic about Chinese joining the PRDM ya...Honestly if your son wanna join the PRDM, are you gonna encourage him? I am saying this recruitment drive for constables ya...not some high ranking Inspectors...Honestly, if any of my relatives wanna join the gestapos, I would hire them myself even if no job for them...I dunwan them to get tainted in a rotten system and end up being corrupt gestapos...

    Millionaires...PRDM earn lots of side income what...u hear of inspectors having millions...
