More police presence, bringing down crime

The Star reported that Police beat bases will be set up at various crime hotspots in Selangor in a move to increase police presence throughout the seven districts in the state. This is one of the latest initiatives that the police have started in Petaling Jaya that have contributed to bringing down the crime rate by 5%.

Having a police station in big residential areas not only help reduce crime, it also reduces response time needed for the police to reach the crime scene..

Elsewhere, various initiatives are being rolled out to significantly reduce crime.

In Bandar Kinrara, residents can rest easier knowing that their safety and homes are being looked after by a specially set-up horse-riding patrol. The four officers from the Mounted Unit of the Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) have started making their rounds from Bandar Kinara 2 to Bandara Kinara 6 during the day where reports of burglaries usually take place, as most residents would be away at work.

The mounted patrol unit initiative has already shown a commendable drop in break-in cases within the first few days.
