KUANTAN: Pahang Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) will work towards greater cooperation with the authorities, especially the police, in future activities and campaigns, said Datuk Seri Chong Chin Fung.

The state MCPF deputy chairman said several programmes were being planned and that more collaboration with all enforcement agencies was necessary to keep crime in check.

“We will complement the continuous efforts of the police in bringing down the crime index in the state.

“The police have been doing a good job and Pahang MCPF will do our part as well to increase public awareness on deterring crime in the districts and neighbourhoods,” he said after leading a delegation of top national and state MCPF office bearers to pay a courtesy visit to Pahang police chief Comm Datuk Abd Jalil Hassan.

They included senior vice-chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, safety city committee chairman and national exco member Datuk Seri Johny Ch’ng Ewe Gee, executive secretary DSP Davidson Tanggapan and Kuantan MCPF chief Datuk Tony Yau.

Chong said for a start, their members would join in the dialogue involving bus operators, the police and Road Transport Department on safety aspects.

He said such meetings were important to prevent untoward incidents.

“Early next year, we will also assist in creating awareness and educating students against getting involved in unhealthy activities.

“This is top on the agenda for the new school term as we want our youths to stay away from drug abuse and gangsterism,” he said.

During the meeting, the police shared the statistics on crime and their successes with MCPF for the first 10 months of this year, followed by a question and answer session.
