DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw reiterates that the police must improve its effciency in ensuring security such as in combatting crimes.
On 12.8.2010, Dr Tan reads the announcement of the Kuala Lumpur Police Chief Deputy Commissioner Datuk Muhammad Abtu Osman of the increase of two district police headquarters (IPD), IPD Kiaramas dan IPD Wangsa Maju in KL.
According to the Economic Planning Unit, the Malaysian crime rate increased from 3.8 in 1990 to 6.2 in 2002. This year, the Home Ministry says that the street crime rate and the crime rate in Malaysia have fallen by 39% and 15% respectively. But, Parliamentary Select Committee on Integrity says that the crime rate is worsening, particularly thefts and robberies.
In Parliament, we follow up on the correct statistics on crime rate in the country. The most important thing is for the police to improve its effectiveness in ensuring security.
To have two more IPDs in KL is a good thing. Apparently,Brickfields will come under the jurisdiction of two IPDs by the end of the year.The new IPD Kiaramas will police Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Bangsar, Travers, Mont Kiara, Sri Hartamas and Pantai.
The IPD Sentul is being divided into two, the other one being the new IPD Wangsa Maju.
We are concerned with security in all districts including Kepong. As the IPD Sentul headquarters in Jalan Ipoh is being renovated, its operations are temporarily divided between Jinjang and Kepong police stations. We hope that policing and crime prevention will not be affected.
Usually, after a complaint the police increases its patrol in say Kepong Garden, crime activities go down. On the other hand, crimes in other areas go up and vice versa. In this transitional stage, we hope the police increases its patrols and mobile stations.
