Lady officers on duty: Three female police officers manning a road block during the Ops Cantas Khas Wanita in Taman Sri Rampai.
KUALA LUMPUR: The police are bringing their women cops to school to tell the students that it is not worth it to be a gangster.
The police reasoned that female officers and policewomen would be more approachable and student-friendly in its crime prevention at the schools.
Bukit Aman principal assistant director of the D7 (secret societies, vice and gambling) division Senior Asst Comm Datuk Abdul Jalil Hassan said that the move was part of the overall operations to combat organised crime.
“We are sending our policewomen to all high schools in the Klang Valley to engage students and speak to them about staying away from gangs,” he said.
He was speaking to reporters after launching the Ops Cantas Khas Wanita at SM Taman Sri Rampai here yesterday.
With him were nine female police officers and 37 policewomen who interacted with the students and their parents.
“We told them why they should say ‘no’ if any gang comes to recruit them and what to do if they are approached,” said SAC Abdul Jalil.
He said the operations would focus on keeping students from skipping school and loitering.
“The move will be carried out at the state and district police levels.”
