PJ cops to get 49 motorcycles for patrolling

THE Petaling Jaya police district headquarters (IPD) will be getting 49 motorcycles from the 10,000 units announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for the PDRM motorcycle patrol unit.

“The Sea Park police station will be getting 16 units and we have chosen Section 14 as the focus area for the first phase. There will be four officers on patrol at a time in each of the three shifts,” he said.
The other stations that will be receiving the bikes are Sungei Way station, which will focus on the Mentari area and Damansara Utama station, focusing on the Bandar Utama area.      Read more ......

First woman mayor will fulfil her duties the best she can

MALAYSIA has a woman mayor — the first in the country. Her name is Datin Paduka Alinah Ahmad and she will take over the helm as Petaling Jaya mayor as of Jan 1, 2013.
Alinah will replace former mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman, who will assume duties as the deputy state secretary.
The first question StarMetro asked Alinah, who is currently Selangor Singular Real Property Housing Board chief executive officer, was how does it feel to be Malaysia’s first woman mayor?
“This is very important to me and I shall do my best to deliver. That is my main objective,” said Alinah, 63, who is busy clearing her work schedule as CEO until end of December.
She thanked the Selangor state government for giving her the honorific appointment.
Yes, she is the first woman mayor in Malaysia, but that does not make her special, she said.
“Yes, I am a lady, but I still have to prove that I can perform my mayoral duties.”   Read more ..........

Launch of Police Motorcycle Patrol Unit (URB) at Balai Polis Damansara by PJ OCPD ACP Tn Hj Arjunaidi Bin Mohamed.

The Police Motorcycle Patrol Unit has been implemented by the government in an effort to help reduce crime in the country.

16 units of Kawasaki Ninja 250 motorcycles were launched last night.

The motorcycles are equipped with a lights and siren system and also a call-set system to enable the respective district police or Bukit Aman to alert the patrol unit to a distress call. 

The unit will conduct round-the-clock patrols in teams of two in residential areas in shifts and also busy areas such as commercial areas, recreational parks and schools in addition to the regular patrolling that we are having now. 

For a start, the patrol unit will only be patrolling Bandar Utama, so SS20 will not be seeing them just yet .....
