MALACCA: Keeping a bird’s eye view on crime is the approach to be taken by in-coming state police chief SAC Datuk Chuah Ghee Lye who has 29 years experience as a plane and helicopter pilot.

SAC Chuah, 53, a former commandant of the Royal Malaysian Police Air wing, intends to use Malacca as a model for innovative police air power to deter criminals.

“I have had a perspective of looking at things from above and will use that experience to merge it with crime prevention tactics on the ground.

“There are plans to make a model for this new approach with the aim of introducing it to other states in the future,” he told reporters yesterday.

He said the innovative use of aerial power to fight crime was in line with the state’s recently acquired status as a developed state.

SAC Chuah is scheduled to take over the post on Dec 31 from outgoing chief SAC Datuk Rodwan Mohd Yusof who will assume the post of deputy director of the Commercial Crime Division in Bukit Aman.

Chuah, who hails from Perak, said he would continue to build on the close rapport established by Rodwan between the police and public here, including creating a police Facebook account to get feedback from the public.

He added that he planned to carry on with community-based police programmes including meeting with various sections of the public to foster closer ties.
