TRUMP-KIM SUMMIT DEPLOYMENT IN THE MIDST OF RAMADAN

NSI Abdul Hadi Bin Abdul Samad

I am Police National Service (PNS) Inspector Abdul Hadi Bin Abdul Samad. Just like regular police officers, full-time PNS officers are equally committed and focussed in discharging our duties. As a Deputy Officer-in-Charge from the Protective Security Command, my team and I were the first line of protectors against security threats. Besides manning the vehicle as well as person checkpoints, we also conducted perimeter patrols at the Shangri-La Hotel. As a supervisor, one of my priorities was to take care of my fellow troopers’ well-being and safety during this deployment.

As this is the month of Ramadan, fellow Muslims officers like myself fast from sunrise to sunset. Despite being deployed for extended shift hours, the absence of food and drinks does not deter me from fulfilling my mission effectively. Being entrusted with frontline duties to ensure the security of the summit was something that I took pride in. I am honoured to be part of the security arm that safeguarded this historic event.
