LAHAD DATU (Bernama) -- Three more batallions of the General Operations Force (GOF) will be deployed to further beef up security in the Eastern Sabah Safety Zone (ESSZone) areas, as part of the effort to complement the current strength.

The three batallions under one brigade, based in Sandakan, will be stationed in identified areas in Kudat, Beluran and Sandakan.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the recruitment was expected to be finalised by the year end.

"The addition of another brigade had been approved by the Prime Minister and the recruitment will give priority to Sabahans and Sarawakians," he told reporters at a press conference after presenting the Medal of National Sovereignty to 250 police personnel here today.

The State is currently relying on one brigade of GOF, based in the west coast of Sabah.
