Blue Ocean Strategy

ABOUT 40,000 personnel from three government agencies will be deployed to major towns to fight crime from Jan 1, said Home Ministry secretary-general Tan Sri Mahmood Adam. The 40,000 personnel were from Rela, the Civil Defence Department and the police, he said in Taman Tun Dr Ismail here yesterday after the soft launch of joint patrols by the three agencies.

"Today is the first day for some of them to patrol in Brickfields and Damansara. More than 5,000 will conduct joint patrols in the Klang Valley as frequently as possible.” Mahmood also said the use of electronic devices was one way to fight crime. “We will install closed-circuit television cameras in stages in every state and will reactivate existing ones in areas according to urgency, particularly in crime hot spots.” Mahmood said the government had engaged three survey companies to get feedback from the public on issues such as safety and security.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar, who was present, said police would give the personnel police volunteer reserve (PVR) status. “Under the Police Act, the IGP can give PVR status to volunteer police, and this will allow them to exercise the same authority as policemen.  Read more .....

Crime Awareness Day 2011

The Selangor Crime Awareness Day 2011 was launched by IGP Tan Sri Haji Ismail Omar at the Curve on Saturday, 19 Nov. The programme is jointly organised by the Selangor police contingent headquarters, Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation and the Youth and Sports Ministry. It is one of the many programmes to bring the public closer to the police.

At the same event, the book ‘Beyond Policing – The Strategic Shift’, written by Selangor Chief Police, Dato’ Hj. Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah together with Mr. Khoo Kheng Hor was also launched by the IGP. This book is priced at RM25.00 and can be obtained at all MPH bookstores. 

Lastly, we are very proud to announce that RT SS20 Community Policing was solely invited among all the RAs/RTs in Selangor to display an exhibition booth at the event. The booth was jointly managed by the police and our residents.

IGP giving speech

The IGP wants the public to be the ‘eyes and ears’ for the police and inform the police of anything suspicious.

He urged the public to provide the police with new ideas or proposals on how to reduce crime rate in the country.
He said with help and support from the public, the crime index could be further reduced.

The IGP said, “The involvement of the public does not mean that the police will shirk their duties and responsibilities but is another strategy by the police in fighting crime. Perhaps, there are some measures that we (police) have not thought about. If feasible, we will implement them and give the individuals concerned prizes as a token of our appreciation”.

The IGP also said he has received a favourable budget from the govt to fight crime. With the budget, he will be able to equip the police force better to combat crime.

Beware of highway motorcycle gangs

AT about 8.30pm on Oct 20, I was driving back to Kuala Lumpur from Penang on the North South Expressway when, between Slim River and Behrang, my car skidded and slammed into the road divider. This was due to heavy rain and my carelessness.

The car was badly damaged but I was not hurt as there was no other vehicle nearby.

I could still drive the damaged car and headed for the police station nearby to make a report.

Moments later, two men on a motorcycle tried to flag me down. Read more ......

Police called them "professional thieves" as they had all their bases covered.

Their ploy was simple. The female gang members would be stationed inside a bank and they would inform their accomplices waiting outside of a possible target.  Read more ......

Ram-and-rob gangs on the prowl

DCP Datuk Mohmad Salleh 
If you are in the habit of driving home late at night, beware

Criminals are using the old “ram-and-rob” ploy against motorists in the city lately.

These robbers would normally seek out motorists driving luxury cars along roads with minimal traffic, usually late at night, before deliberately knocking into the back of the victims’ cars.

When the victims got down to assess the damage, the thieves would have no problem hijacking the vehicles and speeding off due to the lack of traffic during that hours.

City police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohmad Salleh said police investigations revealed that there were more than one group scouring the city centre and its surrounding areas. Read more ......
