KUCHING, Sept 30 (Bernama) -- A total of 7,063 Sarawak police personnel are ready for the upcoming 15th General Election (GE15), said Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Mohd Azman Ahmad Sapri.

“We (Sarawak police) will use the experience gained from mobilising and deploying them during last year’s Sarawak State Election, we are ready.

“The deployment for GE15 won’t involve any assistance from personnel outside Sarawak either, we will only rely on our own manpower,” he told a media conference at the Sarawak Police Headquarters (IPK) here today.

Meanwhile, commenting on Sarawak police’s preparation to deal with the coming northeast monsoon season, he said a total of 1,663 personnel were ready to be deployed.

“A total of 1,064 Sarawak police assets, consisting of land, sea and air, are ready to be mobilised whenever necessary to tackle floods,” he said.

He also advised residents in Sarawak, especially those living in low-lying areas and exposed to the risk of floods, to be prepared, including keeping all their important documents and storing basic necessities like dried foodstuff.

“They must also be wary of the early disaster warnings and evacuate immediately, if necessary,” he said.
