IGP: I am happy to retire after 41 years of service

SEREMBAN: Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic), who will retire on Sept 5, is happy to be able to end his career after 41 years in the police force.
The Inspector General of Police said every civil servant should be prepared for retirement when they reached the mandatory age of 60.
"The fact is that we as government servants are supposed to retire when we reach 60. That is the way it is," he said after a working visit to the Negri Sembilan police contingent.
Khalid refuted claims that he was forward to an extension of his service.
"Anyone who has served 41 years in government service should be happy if he is retiring.
"I am actually looking forward to retirement," he said.
Asked if he was upset by such talk, Khalid said he did not wish to dwell on it.
"I have given enough advice. I rather not say more as I will be retiring soon," he said.
Asked of his retirement plans, Khalid said he had already enrolled for cooking lessons.
"I have not tried cooking but I have developed a liking for it. At the moment, I can only fry eggs," he said in jest.
Khalid also expressed his appreciation to the media for their support to the police.
"I know both the print and electronic media have always been supportive of the police and me.
"Only one or two have been critical but I always took it as a challenge," he said adding that the media must report based on the truth and not through commentaries and analyses.
Khalid joined the force as an inspector at the Police Training Centre in Kuala Lumpur on Dec 5, 1976. He assumed the post of Inspector-General of Police on May 17, 2013.
