TEMERLOH: Policemen in both uniform and plain clothes will be patrolling in the residential areas during the Chinese New Year holidays.
Pahang police chief Datuk SDCP Sharifuddin Ab Ghani said they would be observing, monitoring and patrolling the residential areas, especially houses which are vacant because the tenants or house owners have left for a long holiday.
Sharifuddin said those who wished or planned to leave their houses empty for the holidays, are advised to fill up the forms and report to the police stations.
He said the moves of deploying the police personnels on this matter was to curb the activities of house-breaking, robberies and any other illegal activities since there were nobody in the houses.
Sharifuddin said only some 10% of the police personnel were allowed to take leave during any festivities like Hari Raya Puasa, Christmas Day, Deepavali and Chinese New Year and it had been their routine to keep criminals at bay.
“At the same time our personnel will also be present in the hot spots or the accident prone areas along the East Coast Highway and the Federal roads in the state.
“This is because our presence at those spots have resulted in most road users to be more disciplined by either slowing down their vehicles and more concern on their driving habits.
“Our presence too could reduce accidents,” SDCP Sharifuddin said after launching the state-level of “Ops Selamat” in conjunction with the Chinese New Year holidays at the East Coast Highway’s R&R station in Sanggang, here, recently.
SDCP Sharifudin said the police had identified 30 accident-prone spots in the state where their officers would be placed.
He said so far, police had received 254 “leave” forms from the residents who would be going outstation during the CNY holidays.
