  Launch of Kempen Rumah Selamat Semasa Bercuti Sempena Tahun Baru Cina

Posted on 04, February 2002

 
     
 

PC Yeoh writes Sunday, 03, February 2002:
The serenity of this quiet neighbourhood in USJ18 on a warm Sunday morning was interrupted by the strong presence of the police force. No, there was no major outbreak of crime to warrant their presence here but rather their big boss YDH Dato’ Mohd Fauzi Shaari, the Acting Chief Police Officer of Selangor was here to launch the campaign codenamed “Rumah Selamat Semasa Bercuti” in conjunction with the Chinese New Year exodus. In fact, in his opening address, he said that he already felt the spirit of Gong Xi Fa Cai when two lions dancing to the beat of the drums and gongs welcomed him.

USJ18 was privileged to be entrusted this time round with organising the launch. YDH Datuk Mohd Fauzi Saari really minced his words when he said that the police in this modern era had to be “siap sedia untuk turun ke padang” in order to be more intimate with the residents. Literally, the whole police force was at the USJ18 padang where the launch was held today at 10.00am. The residents both near and far, some 100 of them, were seen mingling with them. The two white lions (should have been horses) were roped in to add sound, sight and action to the occasion. He further praised USJ as one the more active community in crime prevention as compared to other areas in the state of Selangor. By the same token, he also advised residents here not to have a confrontational stance with criminals and also not to take the law into our own hands.

Also present was the OCPD of Shah Alam, Assistant Commissioner Tuan Hussin Hj Ismail - USJ and Shah Alam fall under his administration, the Subang Jaya State Assemblyman YB Dato’ Lee Hwa Beng, Chief Inspector Mohd Rizal Kamarudin, the new police chief of the USJ8 Balai Polis and En. Kamal Affandi Hashim from the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation. There were in addition, many other officers from the rank and file of various Shah Alam police divisions.

Among the first to speak was Mr. Raymond Tan, Chairman of USJ18 Neighbourhood Watch. He thanked the police for the relentless effort put in during the first campaign last month. He said many positive feedbacks were received. Many of those who registered said that they were touched by the fact that the police actually dropped by their houses as evidenced by their cards dropped into their mailboxes to indicate their visits.

In addressing the Sunday morning crowd some of whom were in their Sunday best, the OCPD of Shah Alam, Tuan Hussin Hj Ismail mentioned that this “usaha cara sendiri mencegah jenayah bersama mencerminkan perpaduan dan mesti dikekal sebagai norma budaya untuk generasi yang akan datang.” He shared some statistics that showed the earlier Hari Raya/Christmas/New Year campaign managed to reduce the crime rate by 2.7% compared to the corresponding period the previous year. He said that the Shah Alam Police District conducted 1,551 patrols during the festive period in their crime prevention round. Of the 65, break in reported, only one happened to be a house registered with them.

Next to speak was our Yang Berhormat. I wondered whether he was carried away when he expressed his heartfelt thanks on behalf of the USJ residents to the police force. No one expected anything more than that but to everybody’s bewilderment including the acting CPO, Datuk Lee Hwa Beng committed to present to the USJ8 Balai Police, a Perodua Kancil to assist them in increasing and intensifying their patrolling in our community. Due to this win-win situation, the residents were so supportive that they insisted that since USJ is an affluent community, a Proton Waja would be more appropriate. The Acting CPO chipped in to say that he would be proud and honored to receive this community gesture. On this high note, he officially launched the campaign when the two lions that were prancing around delivered some posters and forms to him. These were then handed to the various representatives from the rest of the Neighbourhood Watches, Rukun Tetangga, USJ Residents’ Association and Jawatankuasa Penduduk (JKPs) who will them disseminate them to an estimated 25,000 houses in this vicinity.

At the press conference later, the acting CPO went into details about the mechanism of the campaign, its importance and the role to be played by the residents. The forms, besides getting the residents to fill in their particulars such as their names, addresses and contact numbers, also have a section where residents are required to find out the names and numbers of their immediate neighbours. Dato’ Mohd Fauzi Saari added the move was important because it would introduce the ‘semangat kejiranan’ (neighbourly spirit).

The forms are available from your local representatives and upon completion, submit to the nearest Balai Police.

Alternatively, residents can also register online by completing the form from the USJ18 Website http://www.usj18.nwatch.net.my/forms.cfm?id=2 or they can also download the forms directly at http://www.hwabeng.org.my/form.htm  and fax/send it to the police at the number indicated on the forms.
