SIBU: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Abdullah wants selected police officers and personnel who had retired over the last three years to be re-hired.

The Prime Minister said this was one way of quickly recruiting the additional 60,000 personnel for the force.

“And those who are going to retire between now and the next three years, tell them not to retire. We need you to work,” he said during a community dinner hosted by Sarawak Barisan Nasional at the SMK Sacred Heart’s Centennial Hall here.

Abdullah, who is the Internal Security Minister, said the force should also continue to recruit and train new personnel.

“I want to see future recruits in the police to include the Chinese and the Indians. We want to see all races in the police force,” he stressed.
