Remark : Dato Seri Yuen Yuet Leng is an intrepid survivor of Malaysia’s life-and death struggle against the Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) during the turbulent 1st Emergency (1948 – 1960) and subsequent emergency years till 1989. Initially a resolute, compassionate and courageous paramilitary platoon commander in a police jungle company, he was a soldier’s soldier and was greatly admired by his men. He led from the front and was twice wounded in action. He thereafter distinguished himself in 20 long years in the Special Branch in secret and delicate operations. He was both strategist and tactician. Grudgingly respected and feared, he was targeted for assassination during numerous foiled communist operations. An apolitical and yet politically conscious senior police commander, he had from youth believed, fought and almost died for a multiracial Malaysia with justice and equity to all communities without any prejudice to Bumiputeras.

Dato Seri retired from the Police Force, after 35 years, as Chief Police Officer (CPO) Sarawak in 1984. Prior to this he was also the CPO of Perak from 1976 to 1981.
