Deputy IGP: Discard 'I don't know' attitude
KUALA PILAH: Discard the “saya tak tau” (I don’t know) attitude and you will get safer streets.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Mohd Najib Abd Aziz said the men in blue should not be solely blamed for the high crime rate in some areas, particularly in Johor.
“We have cases where people had actually witnessed a crime right before their eyes but simply refuse to assist in police investigations ... they just "saya tak tau," he said.
He added under such circumstances, the police often took longer time to solve cases.
He was responding to a statement by Parliamentary Caucus on HumanRights and Good Governance chairman Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz on Sunday that police should accept criticism levelled against the force by the public. more in theStarOnline
