JOHOR BARU: The state police will set up a special international liaison unit to deal with reports lodged by foreigners.
Johor police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the unit would have English-speaking officers placed at various police stations where there were many tourists.
”We want to be able to address the complaints made by tourists efficiently,” he said after attending a briefing session at the Johor Baru South police station here yesterday.
SDCP Mohd Mokhtar said currently there was a team of six officers from the unit stationed at the state police headquarters while small teams would be placed at other police stations.
“The units will be set up at the Johor Baru South, Johor Baru North and Nusajaya police stations as these areas receive a large number of foreign tourists.
“Each district police head is to identify English-speaking officers who can be roped in.”
On a separate matter, SDCP Mohd Mokhtar said police were taking more aggressive steps to eradicate snatch thefts in the state.
“We have stepped up operations to nab addicts here as they are often linked to snatch thefts,” he said.
