Selangor CPO calls for collective crime-bust
SUBANG JAYA: Let’s share security resources to curb crime, says Selangor police chief Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah.
Speaking to reporters after a walkabout here, he said the public and business community need to consolidate resources to bring down the neighbourhood crime index.
“How many CCTV (closed circuit television) cameras are there in a row of shops that has jewellery stores, banks or pharmacies? Do they really install them?” he asked.
He said business operators or shop owners could work together. “One of the bank or jewellery shops can install a CCTV camera at the corridor while the others may install one behind their shops.
“Every corner, area and section will be then be equipped with security cameras, thanks to the cooperation and mutual understanding among them.”
Tun Hisan said that the business community should take safety and security steps collectively. “If the public can do this, it will create a deterrence towards crime and help in our crime investigation.”
He said that Selangor’s crime index had dropped 13.6 per cent with 44.8 per cent less cases of street crime, and Subang Jaya also showed a 23 per cent drop in the crime index with street crime down 27.2 per cent.
