Police to collaborate with public sector to enhance crime prevention

JOHOR BARU: Police wants to work together with the private sector to build short-circuit cameras (CCTV) that have artificial intelligence installed in it.

Bukit Aman Logistic director Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah said the police were looking for ways to better improve its crime prevention including upgrading CCTVs throughout the country.

“It is better to have such as system where our personnel do not have to look at the monitor 24 hours a day.

“With such CCTVs in hand, it could trigger something out of the ordinary or even identify wanted suspects where the images immediately inform the nearest police personnel in the area,” he said.

Comm Zulkifli added that the police would be working closely with the private sector to have such a system soon.

In another matter, he also said that the police, together with the Communication and Multimedia Ministry were coming up with a one-distress application that would be used for all Malaysians throughout the country.

Comm Zulkifli pointed out that in Johor there was the Community Alerts system while the MyDistress was used in Selangor.

“Besides the two, The SaveME999 application is meant for the disabled community in the country but we want to have only one application that will be used by all by June this year,” he said.

He also announced an additional six more Rigid Hull Fenders Boat (RHFB) that would be deployed to Sabah to increase security presence in the area.

Comm Zulkifli said there were 11 such boats now and the new RHFB would be send there by early next month.

In his visit, he announced the Government’s approval to construct a new Johor Baru (South) and Nusajaya police headquarters here.

“The new police headquarters for Johor Baru (South), costing about RM85mil, will be located at the existing Larkin police station here to replace the 100-year-old Johor Baru Central police station.

“The new Nusajaya police headquarters will cost about RM109mil and construction for both projects are expected to start this year,” he said.
