The MyDistress smart phone application introduced recently has effectively helped police in combating crimes especially in Selangor.
Deputy Inspector-General Of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said, in view of the success, the app will be extended nationwide, soon.
Tan Sri Khalid said this after officiating the Crime Awareness Campaign in Subang Jaya, today.
The MyDistress system, which sends an emergency signal with a tap of an icon on smartphones, was introduced by Selangor police in August last year, to speed up police response, in the event of a crime.
