    Community Policing

    Hi all,

    Do we have "community policing" in SS14 or Subang Jaya?

    I need some information. I am thinking of joining the program, or any club which allows the member to be part of the crime fighting team.

    Thanks.

    This reminds me of Rukun Tetangga.

    When I was young, my dad was one of the members. At night they were tasked to petrol a designated area, in group, on rotation basis. When on duty, each of them was given a thick bamboo stick, whistle and touch light.…probably this is the best of all choices if situation is worsening.

    Those days the bad guys not so brazen. Nowadays they come with guns so a bamboo stick really not so much a deterrent.

    Giving guns to civilian groups can be another problem.

    A better choice is to reinforce the past practices of Rukun Tetangga with one policeman in the group that may be helpful. If there is insufficient police workforce, perhaps want to consider getting help from the army, may be laws need to amend to facilitate for this. Government has to play an important role in crime prevention.

    My idea is, when this team member is on duty, he should be ready to help - to rush to the scene to help the victims.

    In other words, this team may reach the scene faster than police. I am not sure how it is possible, just thinking out loud. That's why trying to find out more from the forum.

    Even in the good old days, there were already people who did not want to do patrolling and requested for guard services.
    Furthermore, for those of us who did our own local patrols but not registered for RT, we could only patrol for 2 hours on our duty night - please bear in mind that we could not have 24-hour patrols, especially during the day when we are away at the office. Therefore, the self-patrol idea was either not feasible or lacked support.

    Precisely….Apart from minimizing dependency on foreign workers, if government reinstates Rukun Tetangga a compulsory national duty, there could be an unforeseen advantage to break apart those Mat Rempit or gangsters.

    There are chances that these gangster will be on different days for duty, hence, this indirectly breaking them apart and reduce their meeting time from getting together to commit crime.

    Well, “divide and conquer” can be a good thing if it is being deployed positively for the benefit of the nation.

    Look lah.. I reckon people at Subang/USJ just got NO TIME to spend on some voluntary patrol duty.. period!
    I reckon any community patrolling scheme or implementation end up short lived.

    Even if they have time either they are very scared to get injured/shot/ knifed whilst on duty or they just prefer to hang around the mamak stalls/karaoke /massage joints.

    If crime gets worse and all residents feel jittery about residential safety, perhaps the ultimate is needed. Every residential road entrance/exit manned by employed security guards. Better still. Trained and ARMED guards. Curfew from 2am to 6pm. Ultimate?.. aka as POLICE STATE!... who knows? it may come to all this soon. Close guarding is needed..I just don't see it any other way.. Expensive condos are high security..nothing new. The New Villages during Emergency Era?... maybe an extreme but not new. People just have to sacrifice, do the extraordinary or fork out more money to protect their well being these days.. no choice if wanna stay put.
    Gahmen ain't going to allow people to arm themselves with firearms to protect themselves... PERIOD! Never dream about this to materialize.. NEVER!

    Is there a levy for security petrols by your city council in your area?

    If none, then think of alternative methods

    During those days of RT I used to hate the night patrols. Too much griping from "volunteers". Spend nights sitting down and "talking c...". It was forced volunteering though but we get the day off after that. Was part of Jln Ipoh gang then. Got to know my neighbours though.
