Selangor police to launch its website soon
The Selangor police will soon have a website of its own.
Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the police were looking into setting up a website.
“Once our site is up, we can link these two websites together,” he said, referring to the website of the community policing of the Seri Serdang constituency, which he launched at the IOI Mall in Puchong recently.
The trilingual website (http://cops.org.my/) is the latest effort by the community policing team to reach more people.
The public can get information like crime prevention tips, or submit complaints and commendations for the police through the website.
“The police officers can also blog on their experiences, if they want,” said Kuan Chee Heng, special assistant to Seri Serdang assemblyman Datuk Satim Diman.
Khalid commended the team for their efforts.
“It gives us a chance to interact directly with the public. Crime prevention is a responsibility that can be shared together by the police and the people,” he said.
Currently, there are 65 community polices in Bandar Bukit Puchong and 25 in Bandar Puchong Jaya, five months after the community policing project took off.
“We are focusing on disseminating crime prevention information through website, seminars or dialougues.
“We are working on crime prevention, rather than taking care of the problem,” Kuan, who represented the community polices, said.
Kuan welcomed more Puchong residents to take part in the programme.
“Interested people can apply through our website and they will be vetted by the police.
“Anyone can join us as long as they do not criminal records,” he said.
