His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam yesterday morning made a working visit to the Royal Brunei Police Force Special Operations Squad Complex in Gadong.
Upon arrival, His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam was greeted by Dato Paduka Seri Haji Mohd Irwan bin Haji Hambali, the Commissioner of the Royal Brunei Police Force.
The aim of His Majesty's working visit was to have a closer look at the capabilities and authoritativeness of the RBPF's Special Operations Squad. The Monarch then witnessed the endurance training using full tactical gear.
Among other things, the unit was formed to provide a trained team to face any possible threat or act of terrorism, instill noble values and positive attitude in line with the demands of the force and the country, build mental and physical capabilities as well as boost skills befitting the increasingly challenging police duties.
Established in 1974, the Royal Brunei Police Force Special Operations Squad plays the role in providing highly skilled and authoritative manpower. Curbing and ending any crisis that threatens the country's peace and security at any time is the squad's mission while its vision is to improve professionalism, quality and performance of the special service, increase the confidence of the people and country as well as expand the squad by forming units under it to be innovative, stable and strong in line with the current and future developments and turbulence. His Majesty in a titah once reminded that the RBPF needs to seek excellence in work by truly preventing crimes and freeing the country from criminal activities. In the titah, His Majesty says as it is almost 100 years old, the Royal Brunei Police Force should already have stable experiences under the different, highly skilled and authoritative leaders or leaderships.
