National Police Cadet (Malaysia)


The National Police Cadet of Royal Malaysian Police is a uniformed body at selected high schools in Malaysia with the aim of inculcating discipline among students and helping to curb negative activities.

The idea to form a Police Cadet corps was triggered by the former Inspector-General of Police, late Tun Mohamed Salleh Ismail when opening Launching Police Cadet Team to 2 March 1970. He said,

“The overall objective is to make the cadet a responsible citizen of the future. He must yield a strong and healthy influence among his colleagues, friends and family so that in the years ahead, there will be a new breed, of enlightened good citizens contributing to nation building.”
