Minister of Home Affairs’ “standard reply” to my security question with regard to Wangsa Maju and Kuala Lumpur

Soalan No. 38: PR-1212-L13818

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [ Wangsa Maju ] minta MENTERI DALAM NEGERI menyatakan apakah langkah-langkah yang telah atau akan diambil oleh pihak polis untuk mengurangkan kadar jenayah di kawasan Wangsa Maju dan sekitar Kuala Lumpur di masa hadapan.

Jawapan:

Tuan Yang Di Pertua

Saya mengucapkan terima kasih kepada Yang Berhormat dari Wangsa Maju yang mengemukakan pertanyaan.

Untuk makluman Yang Berhormat, pihka Kerajaan dan PDRM sentiasa emngambil lagnkah-langkah yang perlu dan kaedahn penyelesaian secara menyerulurh bagi mengurangkan kadar jenayah di Kawasan K L dan Wangsa Maju. Antara langkah-langkah dan tindak telah diambil adalah dengan mengambil tindakan mengadakan rondaan lebih kerap dengan tmabahan anngotta dan MPV; mempertingkatrkan pencarian maklumat risikan; mempertingkatkan mutu penyniasatan; meningkat kesedaran terhadap masyarakat mengenai tanggungjawab mereka untuk bersama memerangi jeneyah denghan memperluaskan Program Skim Kepolisan Masyarakat seperti ‘Rakan Cop” dan Skim Pengawasan Kejiranan seperti Rukun Tetangga yang bertujuan untuk merapatkan jurang antara pihak polis dan masyarakat; dan berkerjasama dengan setiap PBT negeri untuk mengaji kawasan-kawasan yang sesuai dan perlu dipasang CCTV.

Notes:

1. These are the standard answers given by the Minister of Home Affairs.

2. The police have been taking such actions for years and crime rates in Wangsa Maju and KL areas still keep on increasing.

3. Talking about CCTV. There are CCTV but some, if not most, are not in working condition. High crime areas are without CCTV.

4. This would appear that such actions do not work and the police have to reinvent or rethink their outdated ideas or non-implementation of ideas.

5. Without more police officers on the beat (on the road) like the Salleh System that we used to have before, it will be extremely difficult to eradicate crimes.

6. Without well-trained professional prosecuting officers to secure convictions against criminals, it will also be difficult to eradicate crimes.

7. Therefore, the police must have more dialogue with the people to understand their concerns and also suggestions to fight crime.
