Don’t give crime chance
to happen, shoppers told

 
             
 

KUALA LUMPUR: Snatch thieves and other criminals, who choose to pick their victims at shopping centres during festive seasons, will go on a spree if shoppers are careless with their money and their goods, the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) warned.
  MCPF chairman Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak said: “Most crimes that occurred were not premeditated. But they happen because the victims gave the opportunity for the criminals to act.”
  He said criminal acts, such as snatch thefts, were apt to occur just before festive holidays when shoppers carry a lot of cash to buy items for the celebrations.
  Najib, who is Defence Minister, said police statistics

 

showed that the number of snatch theft cases last year were 14,368, while in 2000 there were 15, 082 such cases.
  In the Federal Territory, he said, some 2,766 cases were reported last year against 3,922 cases reported in 2000.
  Most snatch thefts were committed by local people and not foreigners, he said when launching the MCPF crime prevention campaign in conjunction with the Chinese New Year at the Sungai Wang Plaza shopping centre here, yesterday.
  Present was MCPF Penang chapter chairman Datuk Kamal Mohd Hashim, who is also the regional (northern) director of Star Publications (M) Bhd.
  He was among MCPF chapter representatives who

 

received anti-crime pamphlets from Najib.
  The foundation and Kuala Lumpur police will distribute about 35,000 anti-crime handouts, in the form of posters and pamphlets, to the public and 50,000 more of these materials will be sent to homes of residents here.
  MCPF vice-chairman Datuk Lee Lam Thye said the anti-crime campaign, with emphasis on preventing snatch thefts, would continue to be held in future, to remind the public of their civic responsibilities to help prevent crime.
  City deputy chief police officer Senior Asst Comm I Datuk Dell Akbar Khan said the police would place extra officers during the festive period at public places such as shopping complexes.

In recognition of the contribution of N/W Groups toward the prevention of crime, representatives of N/W Groups from USJ16 (Bob Goh), USJ18 (Raymond Tan) and USJ23 (Robert Chan) were presented with anti crime pamphlets from Dato' Sri Najib.

An additional note:
As we mingled with the Top ranked Police Officers from all the different states, its was clear that they all recognised and were in full support of the Neighbourhood Watch Groups, especially since Raymond Tan was wearing a T-Shirt with the following wording on the "back"

Neighbours
Helping
Neighbours
To Prevent
Crime

Some even went as far as to ask how we organised the "rondas". Most commented that with N/W groups crime in those areas will definitely be greatly reduced.

 
     
 

Look out for the anti crime pamphlets in your letterbox in the coming days and also the posters place around our neighbourhood.
