Be on guard, USJ folks told

Shah Alam police have cautioned residents in USJ to stay "on guard" due to rising crime in the housing estate. OCPD Asst Comm Azmi Salleh Askor said 40% of crimes committed in the entire police district originated from USJ.

"So you have to take every precaution and help us to help you. Though the police can't be everywhere, you can certainly count on us for support," he told a group of USJ23 residents who gathered at midnight on Wednesday to be on a night watch patrol of the area.

Also present were Subang Jaya Assemblyman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng and Insp. Abdul Rashid Mohd Ali from the Batu Tiga police station.

The informal gathering, which lasted for over an hour, was held in a resident's home.
ACP Azmi said there were not enough policemen to patrol every corner of USJ.
"Last month alone, there were 18 motorcycle thefts in USJ, besides the rising number of burglaries.
"So, night watch patrols are good idea," he added.

ACP Azmi urged residents to adopt the kampung, concept to help counter crime.
"In the kampung, everyone knows each other and they live as a community. In the towns now, people have only got time for themselves.

"I urge you to get to know each other. For a start, you can display your names on your front gates so your neighbours will know your name," he added.

ACP Azmi said the hiring of security guards should be also considered.
He advised night watch patrol members "not to take the law into your own hands".
"If you see anyone suspicious or anything amiss, just blow your whistle and call the police. We will do the necessary. Don't try and act on your own," he stressed.

ACP Azmi said police will step up patrols throughout USJ due to help stem the crime rate.
He said he would propose that a police station be built in USJ to replace the present pondok polis there.
There is some land behind the pondok and we will propose to Bukit Aman that a proper poloce station be built there," he added.

On the suggestion that backlanes be installed with iron grills to deter thieves, ACP Azmi said the police had no objection if the authorities, including the Fire and Rescue Department, approved it.
Several housing areas in USJ have installed iron grills to "blockade" their backlanes.
