THE new Penang Crime Consciousness & Public Safety Society (CCPSS) has donated essentials to the Seberang Prai district police in appreciation of their efforts to fight the pandemic.
CCPSS chairman Datuk Mohamad Anil Shah said that face masks, mineral water, biscuits and instant noodles were given to police from north, central and south Seberang Prai districts.
Mohamad Anil Shah said the events were held in collaboration with the respective OCPDs.
“The items given are for the consumption of our frontliners who are on duty at various locations like roadblocks, ” he said in a press statement.
A similar programme was held at the end of last year for the northeast district police while another one would be held for the southwest district police early next month.
“CCPSS will not be conducting any programmes involving the public in conformity with the MCO restrictions but we will continue to assist our frontliners who are carrying out their noble and selfless duty to safeguard all of us, ” he added.
All the items were handed over to the police by CCPSS deputy chairman Goh Hoe Eng.
Meanwhile, in an unrelated event, CCPSS members and Goh accompanied by north Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Noor visited seven-year-old Mohammad Ammar Dhani Mohd Azuan at his home in Penaga near Kepala Batas.
Mohammad Ammar, who has stage four leukemia, was a policeman for the day and was taken for a spin in a patrol car with its siren wailing.
The little boy had told ACP Noorzainy that he wanted to be a policeman to catch bad guys.
Goh presented Mohammad Ammar with milk products, toys in the shape of police equipment and a police cap.
The boy’s mother Nur Syazwani Mazlan, 30, said that her son started showing keen interest in the police force when he was just over a year old.
“We were saddened when Mohammad Ammar was dignosed with leukemia when he was two years old.
“His condition did not show any signs of improvement despite multiple treatments.
“The cancer spread to his lungs, causing respiratory difficulties.
“The doctors have advised that my son spend his days at home and we hope to fulfill all his wishes, ” she said.
