Cops to organise month-long campaign to raise awareness on commercial crime

KUALA LUMPUR: A month-long campaign to raise awareness on commercial crimes will be launched by Bukit Aman on Nov 8.

Bukit Aman CCID deputy director (Money Laundering / Forensic Accounting Investigation) Dept Comm Datuk Mohamed Hasbullah Ali said, at the pre-launch of the campaign Wednesday (Oct 27), that the initiative was needed due to the rising amount of commercial crime cases, especially those conducted online.

“There is a need to have a more proactive approach that would bring a bigger impact at greater speed,” he said at the Bukit Aman CCID headquarters here.

Several programmes tied to the awareness campaign are in the works, including issuing messages during khutbah (sermons) at mosques.

“We are also working with local influencers so that our message gets spread to a larger audience. A poster campaign will also be conducted for participants,” he said.

As of now, the official launch will be conducted at Berjaya Times Square.

According to statistics shared by the department, the cybercrime cases investigated under the Communications and Multimedia Act (MCMC) and Computer Crimes Acts have led to losses of around RM12,296,284.35 between Jan 1 and Sept 30 this year.
