UMP and General Operations Force (GOF) Southeast Brigade in utilising expertise and innovation
PEKAN, 25 March 2021 - Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) shares expertise in technology and innovation with the General Operations Force (GOF) Southeast Brigade in creating tools that can help security forces carry out their duties and responsibilities more efficiently.
In conjunction with the 214th Police Day Celebration recently, UMP received a visit from the GOF delegation and more importantly, the collaboration was sealed between UMP and GOF.
The event saw the Commander of the Southeast Brigade, Senior Assistant Commissioner, Hasan Basri Ahmad Safar signing a memorandum of understanding with the Dean of the Faculty of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology (FTKEE), Associate Professor Dr. Hamdan Daniyal in an event held at the Executive Lounge, UMP Library.
According to Associate Professor Dr. Hamdan, the collaboration with GOF was established in October last year when the GOF Southeast Brigade needed the expertise in using the latest technology in combating crime.
“It is also an effort to reduce the risk of security threats to the PGA Southeast Brigade team while on duty at the border. The resulting technology will also be competed in the Innovation and Creative Group (KIK) under the creation category in the near future.
“Through this collaboration, the researchers at FTKEE UMP can further highlight the ability in adapting the latest technology through an innovative approach.
“This project is led by Dr. Saifudin Razali along with several other researchers, namely Mohd Falfazli Mat Jusoh, Haji Amran Abdul Hadi and his team,” he said.
In addition, according to him, the slogan ‘Police and Society are Inseparable’ can also be realised through the project.
Also present were the GOF senior officers and the GOF Southeast Brigade Innovation and Creative Group (KIK) members.
This programme will also open more opportunities for collaboration with other agencies to realise the ‘Technology for Society’ agenda.
