Subang Jaya police district needs people for its reserve unit

THE police volunteer reserve (PVRs) of Subang Jaya police district is on the move to recruit more people to join their team of volunteers. 

PVRs is a supporting unit of the full-time police squad where normal citizens could volunteer to help to maintain peace and security of their respective neighbourhoods and public areas.

Subang Jaya district PVR Chief Inspector S. Narasingarao said the recruitment drive was to heed the latest call by the government to get more PVRs on the field to curb crime.  

“PVRs in Selangor is expanding, particularly in Subang Jaya. Currently, we have about 23 staff members in our team with around 30 vacancies left to fill,” said Narasingarao. 

Apart from the six months of strict training, the new PVRs recruits would also be taught self-defence.  

It’s the first recruitment drive for the Subang Jaya district and the areas they currently patrolled include Subang Jaya, USJ, Sunway, Puchong Jaya, and Bandar Bukit Puchong. 

Besides patrolling, the PVRs are also required to beef up security at official functions and maintain peacekeeping at certain public events.  

“We are looking for volunteers aged between 25 and 40 years old. They need to be a full-time employee of any established organisation, preferably from the government sector.  

“Of course the volunteers need to get clearance from their employers before they decide to volunteer. We don’t want their job to suffer as a result of their voluntary work,” added Narasingarao. 

The recruitment is open to all residents staying in Subang Jaya within the radius of 50km.  

He added that he discouraged applicants with shift jobs from applying as their job might not allow them to attend to emergencies during the night.  

“Males or females are welcomed to apply. Minimum qualification needed is SPM, and the applicant should ideally be 5.5ft in height and reasonably well built.  

“This would be a long-term recruitment so we need people who can be fully committed,” said Narasingarao. 

He is urging interested applicants to apply before Oct 25 for the interview and screening process. 

To make an appointment, call Narasingarao at 019-3357896 or Sergeant Major Lim Hock Hin at 012-2007234.
