Police to introduce online system to review police reports
KUALA TERENGGANU: Police are expected to introduce an online system to check police reports online (SSO) throughout the country by mid-2013.
Police National Key Results Area (NKRA) chairman Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob said the system would be implemented with cooperation from the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU).
"The draft is in the final stages and once ready we hope to implement by this year. Through the system, those who lodge police reports may be given a password to check on their report, online," he told reporters when met at the Terengganu police headquarters, here, Sunday.
Ayub added that the system would undergo a trial and error period to identify weaknesses of problems before being implemented.
He added that police may also introduce the concept of '1 household 1 police volunteer reserve' (PVR) to better understand the problems faced by the people and to ensure better security.
"If possible we want every house to be secured by the presence of at least a PVR personnel to enhance cooperation between the people and police. If youths can join as PVR, it would help our cause," he said.
He added that engaging the services of police might not be viable due to the high cost involved but the deployment of PVR should be sufficient to carry our patrolling duties in their respective areas.
Ayub said in Terengganu, the employment of 500 PVR was approved but the figure had increased to 632 while 558 had already undergone a week long PVR course, last month. - Bernama
