The purpose of the police is to ensure the peace and security in the country, however when most of them would be employed to protect the VIPs, how will peace be maintained. It is understandable that with the prevalent security situation within the country, the security of officials is also necessary but the numbers of policemen assigned for the task are way too much. Police should recruit additional forces to cater the VIPs, so that they can focus more on their main purpose of controlling the peace.
