A total of four Universiti Kuala Lumpur Malaysian Institute of Industrial Technology (UniKL MITEC) have been commissioned with the rank of Royal Malaysia Police (Polis Diraja Malaysia-PDRM) inspector.

The Bachelor of Industrial Logistics (Hons) graduates – Muhammad Asyraaf Zakaria, 29; Muhammad Amirul Azami Ahmad Rasol, 28; Muhammad Hussaini Helmee, 28; and Muhammad Nor Qhaireil Nor Azmi; 29, were conferred with the Malaysian uniformed national and federal police force rank on 13 July 2022.

Funnily enough, Muhammad Asyraaf told CBSCD that, he had no intention and interest in becoming uniformed personnel in the first place while adding that they had undergone cadet training at Pusat Latihan Polis (PULAPOL) Kuala Lumpur for eight months and 27 days.

“But over time, I feel called to join the PDRM with the intention of revolutionising the civil service.

“I regard the importance of the participation of highly skilled young people, especially those with Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) knowledge from UniKL, to serve and contribute so that there is a sustainable supply chain to support the increasingly challenging public services,” remarked him.

Describing the training as a mentally and physically challenging journey, Muhammad Asyraaf said, the first three months were a challenging phase where the process of transformation from a civilian to a police officer begins.

It could be gruelling at times, with the recruits being unable to meet with family members and relatives due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, he further noted.

“I call on young people out there not to underestimate the civil service, especially the PDRM, as a career of last resort. This is because there are various departments under PDRM that need new talents and smart people to lead them.

“This agency not only conducts investigations but also has departments such as the Air Operation Force (PGU) and Marine Operations Force (PGM) that require technical skills as well as those with strong resilience and intelligence to be special forces operatives, and those who specialise in the field of law where they have the potential to be team law lecturers and more,” told him.

For the record, all of them graduated from UniKL MITEC in 2018.

Despite having a different start to their higher learning studies, the wisdom gained during the course of their studies at this university served as a stepping stone for them to embark on wider career opportunities.
