OCPD leaves for Penang post after 14-year tour of duty in Perak

TAPAH OCPD acting Asst Comm Som Sak Din Keliaw has been named the new Penang Crime Prevention and Community Safety (Strategic Planning) deputy chief.

ACP Som Sak, who has been Tapah OCPD since 2012, will leave Perak after 14 years.

He said he first served in Perak with the Kuala Kangsar police force between 2004 and 2006.

“I took a year’s leave to further my studies before returning, to Perak Tengah as the deputy OCPD,” he said.

ACP Som Sak thanked Perak police chief Comm Datuk Hasnan Hassan for his guidance.

“I would also like to thank my second in command Deputy Supt Mohd Razali Abdullah for his support and being committed.

“My gratitude also to the other department heads and my peers for their cooperation and assistance,” he added.

ACP Som Sak will be succeeded by Supt Wan Azharuddin Wan Ismail, whose last posting was as Kuala Muda CID chief in Kedah.

In his speech, Comm Hasnan thanked the people of Perak for their cooperation during the general election.

“There were no untoward incidents or any matter that jeopardised public order.

“I congratulate the police and all other federal and state agencies involved in the elections for the smooth process,” he said.

“I also would like to congratulate the new Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Ahmad Faizal Azumu as the new Perak Mentri Besar,” he added.
