2.1 Strength and Weaknesses

        The strength of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) is having units and asset which is suitable at any condition where it would help in rural area and city. PDRM has put efforts to make work as efficient as they can to protect the people, property and animals. The strength that they really make efficiency to come forward is separating the department into a few sub departments. Small group people work more efficient and faster. By separating the departments helps to avoid haywire of doing their individual jobs. For example, narcotic department take responsibilities of drug cases, urine test results and other filling work of those cases.

Police officers in any situation in either big or small case handled they can come back without hesitation. The identity of a police officer is not very easy to detect or find because those data are highly not exposed to people out. In this situation terrorist can’t identify everyone and get alert very fast.

        In addition, the effectiveness in resolving cases and the focus that is given to punish the prisoners is highly motivating. Most of the PDRM Investigating officers take the cases that is lodge to them or given to them very serious. They put a lot of effort to solve the case as soon as possible without any hesitation. Besides, the focus on those cases leads to the best end of the case; either proves the guilty or saves the innocents. For example, more case that is mainly given focus or attention is crime lodge cases.

        Lastly, PDRM police officers constantly co-operates closely with other officers where during emergency the helping tender of them become one force to stop the crime that is happening on the spot. Every officer co-operates to make the situation better either than making it worst.


        The weaknesses that PDRM have are having little skills than other forces.
