The Campaign for Auxiliary Police for Klang Valley…

__________________________________________________________


Kuala Lumpur, CRIME CAPITAL of Malaysia?

—————

Application for Auxiliary Police Force approved BUT with restrictions!

1 The unit must be stationed only at council-owned buildings and the PJ court complex.

2 MBPJ can hire enforcement officers to help with reinforcement of neighborhood security.

Malaysiakini

Ridiculous to restrict PJ auxiliary police unit ops

 

ADUN SPEAKS We welcome Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Khalid Abu Bakar’s historic approval of an application by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to create an auxiliary police force unit.

Given rampant crime in Petaling Jaya, MBPJ had been applying to set up the unit since 2009. Its third attempt, in June last year, has finally been approved, according to a Star report yesterday.

However, Khalid’s reported restriction – that the unit must be stationed only at council-owned buildings and the PJ court complex – is nonsensical and ridiculous.

We are further perplexed by his suggestion that MBPJ can hire enforcement officers to help with reinforcement of neighborhood security.

We do not see the logic of placing armed auxiliary police personnel at council-owned buildings and the court complex, while deploying unarmed enforcement personnel on street patrols against criminals who are often armed and dangerous.

We would like to remind the IGP that the reason for MBPJ’s application was to enhance security for the people in residential and commercial areas – as well as council-owned buildings and the court complex – because there are not enough police officers to patrol the streets.
…..

It was precisely because of this acute shortage of police personnel and clear inaction by Bukit Aman that MBPJ applied to set up the auxiliary police unit.

In the public interest, we now call upon the IGP to lift the restrictions he has imposed on the MBPJ in implementing the scheme.

100,000 SIGNATURE PETITION:   AUXILIARY POLICE FOR KLANG VALLEY

The main objective of this petition campaign is to demand the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and Home Minister to approve the application of auxiliary police force from MBPJ and other local councils in Klang Valley under the Pakatan Rakyat.

Today in Petaling Jaya, one policeman is responsible for looking after 470 residents, which is double of what’s recommended by the international standard of 1 to 250. Why is it that the local councils such as MBPJ under Pakatan Rakyat are denied permission of administering auxiliary police, yet MBJB and MBMB under Barisan Nasional are able to have their own? Why should the residents live in fear and pay hundreds of ringgit for private securities to avoid becoming the next victim?

Crime is rising rapidly and it is time for us to speak up. 100,000 signatures isn’t an easy goal – we can’t do this alone. Say you’ll be a part of the fight for change. Say you’re in. SIGN THE PETITION NOW. More police, safer city!

AUXILIARY POLICE NOT FOR PAKATAN RAKYAT STATES!
Damansara Utama assemblyperson Yeo Bee Yin has questioned the police’s move to approve auxiliary police forces for developers, claiming preferential treatment against Pakatan Rakyat administered states.

Yesterday, The Star reported that developer SP Setia received its first batch of 120 auxiliary police personnel, which would be placed in its housing projects in Johor, Penang and the Klang Valley.

“If SP Setia, Sunway and all these developers are able to hire auxiliary police, why not the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ)?” said Yeo (right) demanding the government to immediately approve the application.

She said this at a press conference today with a group of Petaling Jaya restaurant owners, who were expressing concerns over robberies targeting them.

She said that MBPJ had applied to the inspector-general of police to field its own auxiliary police force in 2009 but was turned down in the following year.

MBPJ applied again in 2012 and has yet to receive a response. The Subang Jaya City Council faces a similar predicament.

MBPJ’s Application for an Auxiliary Police Force

CRIMINALS DON’T NECESSARILY RESPECT STATE BORDERS. HIGH CRIME RATES IN PUTRAJAYA ARE MATCHED, IF NOT SURPASSED, BY THOSE IN PETALING JAYA AND PLACES IN SELANGOR, PUTRAJAYA’S NEIGHBOUR.

CRIME IS SERIOUS IN PETALING JAYA, TOO, SO WHY WON’T THEY ALLOW THE  MBPJ TO SET UP AN AUXILIARY POLICE FORCE?

If Najib, Zahid and the Royal Malaysian Police really prioritises the war against crime, they must immediately approve MBPJ’s application for Auxiliary Police!

MBPJ’s application for an auxiliary police force had been rejected by the IGP in 2010, citing the decline in the crime rate and fears of “overlapping functions” with the police.

In December last year however, then IGP Tan Sri Ismail Omar was quoted as saying that the police will be involved in continuous partnerships and collaborations with auxiliary police to enable more effective crime prevention initiatives under the GTP.

Let PJ have own auxiliary police force, says assemblyman

By Zurairi AR
June 14, 2013

Yeo says there are only 1,323 policemen to police Petaling Jaya, which has a population of around 620,000.PETALING JAYA, June 14 — The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and the Home Ministry should respond to the Petaling Jaya City Council’s (MBPJ) application for an auxiliary police force to ensure the safety of residents, a DAP assemblyman said today.

The council has spent a total of RM4.3 million to train and equip 100 men for its auxiliary police unit, but its application to the police last year has been ignored after another application was previously rejected in 2010.

“There are 123 agencies administering auxiliary police operations comprising 25 government agencies, 21 statutory bodies, 32 government-linked companies (GLC) and 45 companies.

“GLCs such as Telekom, Tenaga and Petronas as well as private companies such as Astro, PLUS, Puncak Niaga and even Utusan Melayu are allowed to have their own auxiliary police, why should the people in PJ be deprived of the right of a safe living environment?” asked Damansara Utama state assemblyman Yeo Bee Yin in a statement here.

Yeo claimed that both the Johor Baru City Council (MBJB) and Malacca City Council (MBMB) have had their applications approved, and by denying permission to MBPJ, Putrajaya has shown double standards towards the city in the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state.

The DAP social media strategist also stressed that establishing auxiliary police forces was among the many initiatives recommended by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s Government Transformation Programme (GTP).

Under the “Reducing Crime” National Key Results Area (NKRA), the police are asked to increase their presence, which includes expanding the Police Volunteer Reserve and co-ordinating volunteerism through community policing.

Yeo pointed out that there are only 1,323 policemen in charge of Petaling Jaya, which has a population of around 620,000. This makes a police-to-population ratio of 1:490, higher than Interpol’s optimal ratio of 1:250.

This lack of police presence has forced PJ residents to spend hundreds of ringgit annually for private security barricades, boom gates and guardhouses, she added.
