MIRI, Feb 28: Thirty barracks at Miri Police Headquarters are in a dilapidated condition and in urgent need to repairs, says Miri Deputy Police Chief Supt Mohd Sabri Zainol.

Mohd Sabri briefed Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) president Datuk Dr Adnan Maton the matter during the latter’s visit to the Miri Police Headquarters earlier today.

“This has raised concerns about the living conditions of the police officers stationed there, and we hope Cuepacs could bring forward the pressing issue of repairing the barracks to the federal government to address the situation and improve the living conditions for police personnel,” Mohd Sabri said.

The headquarters was established in 1976.

Adnan urged the government to prioritise the repair and maintenance of security forces quarters across the country under the Home Ministry agency facilities, with Miri Police Headquarters being no exception.

“These quarters serve as the homes for our brave men and women in uniform who work tirelessly to ensure the safety and security of our nation,” he said today after attending an engagement session at Miri Police Headquarters.

He emphasised it is imperative that the government take immediate action to address this issue and provide the security forces with the comfortable and safe living conditions they deserve.

“These living spaces are in urgent need of repair and maintenance to ensure the well-being and safety of the occupants. Cuepacs emphasises the importance of providing suitable housing for public servants who play a crucial role in serving the community. Thus, it is crucial for the government to prioritise the repair of these quarters to create a conducive living environment for its employees,” Adnan said at a press conference.

Earlier this morning, Adnan and his entourage paid a similar visit to Miri District Education Office. — DayakDaily
