RESIDENTS of Jalan Serindit in Bandar Puchong Jaya will work together to improve security after the successful registration of their residents association with the Registrar of Societies.
The Jalan Serindit Puchong Selangor Residents Association received the certificate from special officer to Home Minister Datuk Loo Yeng Peng in an event recently.
The seven-man committee helmed by Marcus Chang will embark on a door-to-door membership recruitment drive.
“We will look into setting up the gated-and-guarded security scheme together with the residents.
“Daytime break-ins occur frequently in this residential area, contributing to loss of properties. We want to curb the problem before it escalates to loss of lives,” Chang said.
Some 50 residents who attended the ceremony were also introduced to Puchong Jaya police station officer-in-charge Insp Hailmi Zil Azam Nordin, who was promoted to the position a month ago.
The residents took the opportunity to highlight their concerns to the police such as regarding police patrolling, influx of foreigners and traffic problems contributed by the food court and traffic light junction.
Insp Hailmi noted the residents’ concerns and explained crime cases in Jalan Serindit increased after the link road between Bandar Puchong Jaya Selatan and Pusat Bandar Puchong was opened to traffic.
“The culprits could escape easily via three directions,” he said.
Besides gated-and-guarded scheme, he advised residents to have joint patrols with the police through the community policing programme.
He also urged the residents to lodge police reports when they fall victim to crime cases.
Loo, on the other hand, said he would forward other concerns to the Immigration department and local authority.
