MARAN: Police will make frequent checks in higher institutes of learning in Pahang to prevent students from indulging in drugs.
State deputy police chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fatimah Ghazali said the move would be preventive and educational in nature and was not meant to scare students or their parents.
“It is like bringing awareness to everybody involved so that the studies of the children are not disrupted by illegal and negative activities,” she told reporters after launching the Community-Oriented Policing (COP) programme at the Universiti Teknologi Mara campus in Felda Jengka, near here, yesterday.
SAC Fatimah admitted that there were students involved in such activities but although the situation was not alarming, the authorities did not want some bad hats to influence the majority who were “clean and with a fresh mind to study”.
