Cops To Use Integrity Test To Screen Recruits

Khalid Abu Bakar/Pic:Malay MailKhalid Abu Bakar/Pic:Malay MailKUALA LUMPUR: The police will be the first enforcement agency to implement the Malaysian Integrity Test to filter candidates, starting this month.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said nine counsellors from the force’s religious and counseling body (Baka) were sent for training with Mimos Bhd, which had developed the test.

“The Baka personnel will conduct the test on the applicants.

“The test is to analyse a person’s integrity and personality. All recruits need to pass the test before they are accepted into the force.”

The first batch of recruits, comprising 1,900 applicants, will take the test this month.

Khalid said more personnel might be trained by Mimos, depending on the outcome of the test.

He said the force might, in the future, require those being slated for promotion to take the test.
