KUALA LUMPUR: More policemen will be deployed at popular tourist spots in the city during the Chinese New Year and Visit Malaysia Year 2014 festivities.
The areas will include shopping malls, Dataran Merdeka, Petaling Street and popular spots in Dang Wangi, Sentul, Brickfields and Cheras.
“To ensure tourists feel safe during their stay, the number of policemen will be increased and the motorcycle patrol unit will be strengthened,” said city police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohmad Salleh.
Kuala Lumpur police currently had about 8,500 officers, he told reporters after launching the Federal Territory’s Ops Selamat and a walkabout along Petaling Street here on Friday.
In another development, city police acting CID chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa said police would distribute clearer copies of the CCTV footage of the RM2.2mil diamond heist at an upscale jewellery store in Jalan Bukit Binang on Jan 16.
He added that the police had received positive response from Interpol, which was helping to trace three women and a man suspected to be involved in the theft.
