Statistics of the day

1 percent (1%) - is the statistic of the day.

Let me explain in mathematical term. Royal Malaysia Police has the following assets:

Number of sworn members: 102, 037
Number of Police Stations: 1,000

1% represent: (1/100) * 102,037 = 1,020 policemen


On average, for each of the 1000 police stations in Malaysia, there are at least 1 (one) policeman reported to have taken a bribe.

Do you have a police station in your area/district? It would be interesting to interpret the figures and relate them to your place and situation.

Only one per cent of cops on take - IGP

KUALA LUMPUR, March 14 (Bernama report) — Only one per cent of about 100,000 policemen are reported to have taken a bribe, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said today.

He warned that the number, however, could spread like cancer if the situation is left unchecked.

Ismail was quoted by Bernama as saying, “It is always regrettable to hear someone say many policemen are corrupt. This is not good.”

He also told the national news agency that he is working on inculcating a zero corruption culture in the police force and urged the public to report corrupt personnel. The performance of the Police Disciplinary Department, which was established to address police misconduct has been satisfactory, he added.

@Aki.
36 per cent, eh?

So, according to you, one in three police officers are taking bribe, yes? That's an interesting probability.

1% means we have one of the cleanest force in the world,i think MACC should go underground to find out.
