IGP: 2019 crime rate dropped 7.5 per cent

By Raja Noraina Raja Rahim – January 23, 2020 @ 12:51pm

KUALA LUMPUR: The crime index in Malaysia recorded a decrease of 7.5 per cent throughout last year, with 249 cases per 100,000 populations.

Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador said despite not meeting the target of 269 cases, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had shown remarkable achievement.

In fact, he said in the fight against crimes, the police also focused on drug prevention, with nine specialised operations mobilised.

“Among our biggest successes was the seizure of 12 tonnes of cocaine worth RM2.4 billion worth under Op Eagle in Penang on Sept 10.

“We are also implementing two other programmes, ‘Naziran by Night’ and ‘Nurture for Betterment’, to enhance the operational efficiency of the Narcotics CID and combat the drug menace,” he said in a statement today.

On the issue of drug abuse among police personnel, Abdul Hamid said 269 officers and staff were arrested through Op Blue Devil last year.

“From Jan 1 to Jan 17 this year, nine officers and staff were detained after a screening test found them positive for drugs.

“I hope drug use among police personnel can be eradicated for the good image of the department. CID’s continued efforts to conduct screening tests and surprise checks have been effective in reducing the cases,” he added.

Abdul Hamid said the Commercial CID detained a total of 15,876 people through 17,582 operations during the year.

He added that 21,016 out of 26,465 investigation papers had been completed.

Meanwhile, the Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) had arrested 3,086 people for various traffic offences, and 296 others for other offences.

In addition, Abdul Hamid said various viral road cases, including hit and run, bullying, road rage, drunk driving and drug abuse were also successfully resolved by the department.

He brought an iron rod to a gun fight…

Suspected burglar shot, accomplices held after 20km chase by police

KUALA LUMPUR: A suspected burglar was shot and wounded after he tried to attack police with an iron rod following a high-speed car chase that took patrolmen over 20km in the city yesterday.

While two of his accomplices escaped, police managed to arrest two others – a man and a woman soon after the chase came to an end at Bukit Hartamas, Cheras here.

Police said patrolmen on crime prevention routine had spotted a white Toyota Alphard with five people in it moving suspiciously along Jalan Tun Razak at about 12.20am.

The patrolmen flagged the vehicle down and when they stepped out to investigate, the driver of the car sped off.

The patrolmen gave chase and pursued the suspects who drove through Jalan Chow Kit before heading towards Cheras.

Even when they were faced with a police roadblock at Taman Dagang, the driver defied orders to stop by policemen and crashed through the barricades.

The pursuing policemen then opened fire at the tyres of the car after finding the speeding vehicle a danger to other road users.

However, this too did not stop the driver until he came to a dead end at a fishing pond in Bukit Hartamas.

Blocked by a patrol car and unable to escape, three occupants of the car jumped out of the vehicle and ran towards a jungle with policemen in pursuit.

While two of them managed to escape, the third man who was armed with an iron rod he found nearby was cornered by the policemen.

In his desperate bid to escape, the suspect tried to attack the policemen with the rod.

In self-defence, a policeman whipped out his service revolver and fired a gunshot that hit the suspect’s thigh.

Kajang deputy police chief Supt Mohd Sabri Abdullah said two other suspects – a man and a woman who remained in the getaway car were arrested.

Malaysian states on ‘high alert’ following spate of jewellery store robberies. In one instance, eight robbers stormed into a jewellery store and smashed the glass display panels and grabbed the trays in just under three minutes.

Malaysian states on ‘high alert’ following spate of jewellery store robberies

zzzpop.jpg

KUALA LUMPUR (Malaysia) — Following three jewellery store robberies in just four days, all state police in Malaysia have been placed on high alert.

Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Mohamad Fuzi Harun said investigators are tracking down the suspects in all three back-to-back incidents.

While there has been speculation that the robberies were committed by the same gang, the IGP said initial investigations suggest all three cases in Cheras (Kuala Lumpur), Bangi (Selangor) and Seremban (Negeri Sembilan) are isolated and not linked.

“Their modus operandi are different, some were armed with different weapons and the number of suspects involved in each case also varied,” he told Malay Mail.

Mr Mohamad Fuzi said police are looking at similar robberies in the past to see if there is a link to the recent cases.

Now, Seremban jewellery shop hit by lightning quick robbers

Friday January 5, 2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 5 — Another shop, this time in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, has been robbed by a group of eight gunmen who fled with six trays worth of jewellery in three minutes last night.

Seremban district police chief Assistant Commissioner Thiew Hock Po confirmed the incident but declined further comment, saying a news conference on the issue will be held today.

The New Straits Times reported the robbery took place at a jewellery shop in the Palm Mall shopping mall in Kemayan Square at about 8pm yesterday.

The eight robbers, who were all wearing full-faced helmets, stormed into the store and smashed the glass display panels and grabbed six trays of jewellery.

“There were no customers in the premises at that time. The suspects took about three minutes before they made off on their motorcycles,” the daily quoted an unnamed witness saying.

The jewellery shop is said to be located on the ground floor near the mall entrance.

A shotgun was reported to have been found near there, believed to have been discarded by one of the fleeing robbers.

The Seremban heist adds to a recent growing spate of robberies committed in under five minutes since last November.

On January 4, a trio of robbers wearing motorcycle helmet visors had carted away RM370,000 worth of jewelleries in less than five minutes from a goldsmith in Taman Bangi Avenue in CS Supermarket, Persiaran Bangi Avenue around 11.22am.

On New Year’s Eve, a gold-heist incidents took place in about three minutes n a shopping mall in Taman Segar, Cheras, which involved a group of 10 men armed with hammers, who fled with jewellery worth RM1.5 million.

A robbery involving two armed robbers had unfolded at the Wah Chan store in Giant Kota Damansara at 10.55am on November 1, last year, with RM1.1 million worth of gold items stolen.

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 2 — Police are looking at the possibility of an inside job concerning a goldsmith robbery at a mall in Taman Segar, Cheras, where RM1.5 million in jewellery was looted within three minutes on New Year’s Eve.

Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Rusdi Mohd Isa told Malay Mail at this stage all possible motives are still being explored.
.
Last Sunday, five men wearing full-face helmets and armed with hammers stormed into the goldsmith shop where five employees and a security guard were working at around 8.30pm.

The robbers were said to have five other accomplices standing by outside the mall on several motorcycles for their getaway.

Cheras district deputy police chief Supt Ismadi Borhan said investigators are in the midst of collecting footage from security cameras installed at the roads and buildings near the scene to identify the suspects.

“We are collecting the needed information from security cameras from the nearby buildings and those operated by the city council and the Road Transport Department to determine their escape route.

Crime index reduced by 100%, says Zahid


Low Han Shaun

GOVERNMENT figures show a 100% reduction in the crime index for every 100,000 local residents and foreigners, Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said today.

The reduction is based on the National Key Results Areas (NKRA) Key Performance Index (KPI) assessment of the police.

“I am happy to announce a few extraordinary achievements of departments and agencies under the Home Ministry for extraordinary KPIs under the NKRA, NKEA (National Key Economic Area) and MKRA (Ministerial Key Result Area).”

“For the police, there is a reduction in crime index for every 100,000 local residents and foreigners, its community engagement index is also at at 82%,” Zahid said at the ministry’s morning assembly at Putrajaya today.

A month ago, Zahid was reported as saying that the public still viewed the police as ineffective even though the national crime rate had been cut by 47% in the past six years.

Zahid said there would always be “individuals, groups and organisations” that would be “envious” of the Home Ministry’s achievements.
.
Zahid said his ministry had been “victimised” by the online media, and that the media had to report the ministry’s achievements fairly.

“We do not need praise, we only need recognition by the public that we are doing something for the betterment of the nation,” he said.

Police shoot to overpower sword-wielding drug pusher

TAWAU: Policemen had to open fire thrice to overpower a man suspected to be a drug pusher who charged at them with a Samurai sword in Brumas near here last Thursday, Tawau Police chief ACP Fadil Marsus said today.

The policemen fired the third shot at his right arm and the man dropped the sword and was caught, he said in a statement.

Fadil said a team of policemen confronted the man and a 14-year-old boy who were riding a motorcycle but they refused to stop and tried to speed off.

However, they found that their path was blocked and quickly drew out Samurai swords, he added.

“The policemen warned the two suspects to surrender but they ignored the warning and the man rushed towards the policemen,” he said, adding that the boy ran away towards some undergrowth, carrying a black bag.

He said the suspects were believed to be drug pushers in the district.
