KUALA TERENGGANU: In a move to effectively address rising crime cases involving students, the Terengganu police will work with the State Education Department to address the problem.
State police chief Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said his officers would meet the department officials to work out the best solution to jointly tackle the problem.
Investigations revealed the rise in crime among students in the state stemmed from fights among them over trivial matters like loss of handphones and grazing of motorcycles, he told reporters at the launch of corporate culture in the state civil service by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh here on Tuesday.
Trivial matters are made an issue and are magnified. Maybe they dont have the culture of forgiving one another. What I cannot accept is that these minor cases also involve outsiders, he said.
On students riding motorcycles, Acryl Sani said police would take action if they break traffic rules.
However, we are willing to relax the rules on certain days, especially on Fridays, on condition that it does not involve main roads, he said.
Acryl Sani also urged Rakan Cop to cooperate with the police by passing information on house break-ins, thefts and robberies and not only illegal racing.
They may not be able to directly see the crimes happening but if they have information on stolen goods, we need that kind of information, he added. Bernama.
