The prevention of crime vital towards buidling a peaceful and safe
community. While crime fighting is the responsibility of the
authorities, members of the public can play an important role in protecting
themselves and their local communities.
If you witness a crime, it is important that you immediately lodge a
report at a police station nearest to your location. The official website of
Royal Malaysia Police
(RMP) provides a convenient facility to find contact numbers of district and
local police stations.
The public can now dial
999 to report all forms of
emergencies and expect their calls to be answered within 10 seconds or after
four rings by the 999 Emergency Call Service Centre.
The RMP website also provides some excellent pointers on how to prevent
crime. Common crimes discussed include burglary, car theft, domestic
violence, and snatch theft.
A well-run neighborhood watch program can also be a powerful deterrent
against criminal activity in residential areas.
