It is fine if you want to throw a wild party once in a while to blow off some steam.
But you probably shouldn't do it in a police station, as this one police officer found out.
Work hard, party harder?
The chief of a police station (OCS) in Kajang landed himself in hot water for allegedly throwing a super wild party in his own police station, New Straits Times
According to the report, the police station chief, three of his officers and four civilian women were nabbed following a raid by his fellow colleagues from Bukit Aman's Standard Compliance Department (JIPS).
The raid was reportedly conducted at 6pm on Tuesday (20 July) after the standard compliance unit received a tip-off from members of the public.
When the JIPS team arrived, the suspects were caught singing, dancing and consuming alcohol inside a dark room -- which, by the way, was equipped with a swivelling disco ball (insert shocked emoji here) -- on the second floor of the police station.
The team reportedly found five bottles of ketum juice and an obscene photograph believed to be of one of the officers detained with a woman during the raid.
They also confisicated bottles of liquor, disco lights, audio system equipment, speakers, microphones and a television.
Bukit Aman JIPS director Datuk Azri Ahmad confirmed the incident, revealing that the officers detained were the OCS with the rank of sub-inspector, two corporals and a support corporal.
The four women who were detained, meanwhile, were aged between 21 and 37 years old.
A clear violation
Azri said the arrests were made based on a clear violation of COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the government.
"The actions of the officers, members and the public involved who entertained in a room at the hall with respect to karaoke were against the COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOP).
"The arrests were made by officers and members of JIPS Bukit Aman after finding that the action clearly violated the SOP.
"We will not compromise with any party if they are found to be violating the rules or SOPs set," he was quoted as saying.
Azri added that a thorough investigation is underway, and the officers are facing charges under under Section 269 of the Penal Code for negligence that may result in the transmission of any infectious disease that could be life-threatening.
Now that the fun is over, it's time for the officers to face the real music, right?
