KOTA BARU: Police have sought the cooperation of 20 government and private agencies in the state to tackle crime via closed circuit television (CCTV).
Kelantan deputy police chief Datuk Mazlan Lazim said under the Safe Camprogramme launched last year by the Home Ministry, owners of premises with CCTVs could assist the police by letting them have the recording of crime incidents in their area.
“We called them today for a briefing on the Safe Cam programme before initiating a memorandum of understanding with them on crime prevention.
“Among the advantages of being in the programme is that police will be patrolling their area more frequently,” he said in conjunction with the briefing at the state police contingent headquarters here yesterday.
The Safe Cam programme is an initiative under the 1Aman-United Against Crime campaign listed in the government’s transformation programme to reduce crime. — Bernama

RA SS20 Central hosts their inaugural annual dinner

The dinner was held on Thursday, 17 Oct at the Central Zone Cabin. It was well attended by almost 100 people, members and guests.

Guests for the night were YB Tony Pua, representatives from RT, Southern and Northern Zone RA, Insp Zul Azri (OCS Balai Polis DU), DSP Jipa, Sgt Hamdan and other police personnel.

The dinner was also a pre-celebration of Deepavali as well as to bid farewell to DSP Jipa who has retired and Sgt Hamdan who will be transferred to Kota Tinggi.

The night began with the welcome speech by Dato' Dr Vincent Ng, Chairman of RA SS20 Central. He thanked all the RA members who were so supportive of the RA and pledged to have more activities and community projects that are beneficial to the community.

This was followed by a speech from YB Tony Pua. YB is very supportive of our RA activities which include social, security and environmental. 

Specifically for security activities, YB Tony reiterated his understanding that our local police force is performing their duties as best as they could with the limited personnel. However, residents continue to fear for their security and carry out various actions like employing security guards, closing roads, etc. 
Some of these actions run foul of the local authorities and YB Tony has consistently emphasized the need for these authorities to view each Taman’s uniqueness in their layout and connectivity to other areas when allowing these security actions. 
The residents’ actions are solely to make their own area safer and local authorities should focus their effort on more pressing issues like illegal stickers/posters, shop operators occupying public parking bays and unhygienic eateries, to name a few.

Residents enjoyed their buffet dinner and appetizers were sponsored by the CP Group which also sold some of their food products at a discounted price to the delight of the members. The night ended with many members going home with bags filled with frozen foodstuff.

Robbery at SS21/11 Damansara Utama

Received the following email from Damansara Jaya Residents and Owners Association (DJROA)

"This happened on 15/10/13 about 9.00pm at SS21/11 Damansara Utama. 
Four Chinese men, well-dressed, travelling in a Mercedes, stopped in front of a 2-storey terrace house, prised open the auto gates, rushed in with parang to the grill door and rapidly prised it open. 
A family member watching TV in the house, on hearing the noise, wondered what happened outside, unlatched the main timber door to take a look. The robbers simply rushed in. Within 5 minutes, they robbed the family of cash and valuables, and fled in their Mercedes car.

What could the security guards do to help? Apparently nothing! They only knew when the victims reported after the robbers had disappeared.

Such robbers can easily pass through security guards and drive around the residential area looking for easy targets. Once they spot an opportunity, they can act very fast. They are well-equipped with crow-bars, huge spanners, parang, etc. They are experts in house breaking. They act so fast that by the time the security guards smell anything, if at all, these criminals have fled. Don't even think of the police arriving to catch them.

Be alert always. This can happen to anyone, anytime. Always lock your gates, grills, doors, and don't hang around outside your house alone, with doors open, as if inviting the robbers to come in. They won't thank you for it. Maybe chop off your head!!"
