PETALING JAYA: Malaysia is targeting to have a 10-minute police response time as it eyes the 10th place on the Global Peace Index under the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP).

This is among the three key targets highlighted in the plan.

For Index Crime Cases per 100,000 population, the country is aiming to keep incidents to around 238 cases.

“National security and sovereignty will continue to be given priority in ensuring a conducive environment for economic activities and safe living as well as maintaining a dignified and resilient nation.

“Emphasis will be given on safeguarding national sovereignty, intensifying efforts in crime prevention, rehabilitation and emergency preparedness as well as the welfare of the Armed Forces and enforcement personnel,” it said.

According to the 12MP, drug related laws will also be reviewed to de-list addicts not involved in criminal cases from the registrar of criminals and undesirables in order to provide them a second chance in life, especially job opportunities.

Protecting the borders is also among the main aspects of the 12MP, with operations such as Ops Benteng to be reinforced.

“The safety and sovereignty of the country are the core aspects that ensure a peaceful and stable Malaysia.

“Among the initiatives that will be implemented include the improvement of our readiness, border control, enforcement, public and cyber security, as well as the welfare of those serving,” according to the plan.

Projects such as the Marine Police Sea Monitoring System at five maritime territories and the improvement of maritime assets will be initiated.

A new bare base for the Air Force in Bintulu will also be constructed, along with new camps in Felda Sahabat, Kota Belud and Beluran, Sabah.

Additional quarters are also being planned, with 10,200 new homes for Armed Forces soldiers and their family members under construction.
