PETALING JAYA: Inspector-General of Police Abdul Hamid Bador’s tenure as the nation’s top cop comes to an end today – a two-year period during which he worked to reform the police force and cemented his reputation as a man who does not mince his words.

A former Special Branch deputy director who was removed from his post after criticism of the 1MDB investigation in 2015, Hamid was later transferred to the Prime Minister’s Department but refused to report for work.

Left out in the cold, he was appointed one of the four members of a special task force to investigate 1MDB when Pakatan Harapan took over Putrajaya in May 2018.

He was also named Bukit Aman Special Branch chief the same month and took over the top cop’s post in May 2019, when he replaced Mohamad Fuzi Harun.
