Safe-cams way to curb crime

KULAIJAYA: Seventy-nine safety cameras – or safe-cams – linked to the police operation room have been installed at various business premises here in an effort to reduce crime.

Kulaijaya OCPD Supt Zulkefly Yahya said the move would help to cut down on crime cases in the district such as break-ins.

“So far, the response is good because many business operators and owners have installed such a device on their premises,” he said during the launch of a safe-cam unit at a factory in the Kelapa Sawit industrial estate near here on Thursday.

At the same event, Supt Zulkefly also launched a motorcycle patrolling unit, consisting of six vehicles, to be mobilised to hotspots in the district.

Kulaijaya, he said, had also recorded a reduction in the number of crime cases, dropping from 1,166 in 2011 to 1,065 last year.

“We hope to further reduce the crime rate this year with the introduction of the safe-cam system and motorcycle patrolling unit,” added Supt Zulkefly.

On another matter, he said the police were looking for a man to help in the investigation of a case involving a woman whose body, wrapped in a garbage bag, was found in a stolen car abandoned near Kampung Desa Idaman in Sedenak.

The man, said Supt Zulkefly, had been identified as Devadas Amasi, 36, also known as Chellam. His last known address was in Taman Daya, Johor Baru.

Those with information should contact the nearest police station or call 07-221 2999.
