Dialogue with Subang Jaya Police - Sun July 23, 2006
Crime and security is very much an issue lately in USJ and Subang Jaya, with the increasing frequency of reported cases.
ALL USJ/Subang Jaya residents are cordially invited to attend a DIALOGUE WITH SUBANG JAYA POLICE on:
Date : Sunday, July 23, 2006
Time : 2.30pm - 5.00pm
Venue : Dewan Theatrette at MPSJ Building (USJ 5), Subang Jaya
ACP Fuad Talib, OCPD Subang Jaya and his team of senior officers will be there to brief residents on the latest crime situation/police resources/etc. To be followed by an interactive session with residents which will be moderated.
YB Datuk Lee Hwa Beng, ADUN Subang Jaya, will chair the dialogue.
We would like all USJ/Subang Jaya residents to turn up in force and be concerned about an issue that affects us. Most of all, this dialogue is:
• a platform for residents to discuss issues and explore how we can jointly/collectively help the Police to help us
• intended to forge a better working relationship with the Subang Jaya Police (we hope to hold more of such dialogue sessions on a regular basis)
Please spread this message to your family members, neighbours and friends.
Refreshments will be served after the dialogue. Door-gifts in store for early birds.
Thank you & regards,
Hon. Sec-USJ Residents Association
A very interesting Dialogue between the Police and Residents.
Posted on 10.53pm Jul 30, 2006
More than 200 residents attended the Police Dialogue held at the MPSJ Auditorium on 23 July 2006. The hall was packed full and some residents had to sit at the doorway and along the aisle. Earlier, the organisers for the event, the USJ Residents Association had feared that the rain might wash out the interest of residents when it was raining cats and dogs at about 1.30pm. Obviously, the residents were not easily deterred by the rain and they turned up in droves. Many spent time viewing the various stalls that had been set up by supporting vendors for the event. OCPD Fuad attended the Dialogue supported by a group of about eight other officers from the various divisions. Also present were the ADUN for Subang Jaya Datuk Lee Hwa Beng, Councillor Yap and the past Chairman of the RA Datuk Subramaniam.
Acting USJ RA Chairman PC Yeoh kicked off the Dialogue with a short welcome address followed by Datuk Lee Hwa Beng, who was obviously happy with the good turn out. Incidentally, Datuk Lee is also the adviser to the RA. OCPD Fuad then took over to brief the audience on the Organisation of the Subang Polis IPD (Ibu Pejabat Daerah) and the crime statistics within the district for the period Jan - June 2006. He went on to elaborate that there was an increase of about 300 crime cases compared to the same period last
year. About 25% of the crimes in the district occurred in the USJ precinct. The good news however was that drug cases was minimal in the same area. He went on to detail that currently there were only about 80 police officers based in the USJ area but he hoped to increase this to about 150. And a new Police station for USJ was also in the pipeline. He also revealed that the new IPD would be built in Kinarara, Puchong though it would be known as Subang Jaya IPD.
He went on to share some advice with the residents.
1. Dont stop or go home if you are followed. Call the Police.
2. Dont withdraw large sums of money alone. Best to be accompanied by
The OCPD also gave the assurance that action will also be taken against any police officers who abuse their power and he would not tolerate any such behaviour. He then went on to welcome residents to email the police if they had any complaints, information or suggestions. Their email address was firstname.lastname@example.org
After his hour odd talk, the floor was opened to the audience. There was no shortage of residents who wanted to give their views, share their experiences, offer suggestions and raise questions. Finally, time ran out and the Moderator Raymond Tan had to call the Dialogue to a close. The participants then adjourned for tea. Most of the residents were happy with the format of the Dialogue and the manner it was held, though some felt that more time could have been provided for the Q & A. Happy with the outcome, the RA is now considering the possibility of having a similar kind of Dialogue with another Authority. MPSJ perhaps ?
