Tropicana Golf & Country Resort together with the Royal Malaysia Police (“PDRM”) today hosted a highly successful and memorable Crime Prevention Day for the benefit of residents and people staying in and around this prestigious Petaling Jaya neighbourhood. The turnout was overwhelming and the two-hour session was highly educational for all who had attended it.
The event was graced and officially launched by Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din, who later engaged in an open Q&A dialogue with the audience.
PDRM and the Tropicana Residents Association (TRA) praised the efforts made by Tropicana senior security manager Ismail Saleh and his team for always being vigilant in keeping the neighbourhood safe and secure.
In the past two years, only one break-in had occurred with the suspect subsequently caught. That’s certainly a feat for a neighbourhood spanning a total of 4,170 homes with an estimated 25,000 family members staying within the neighbourhood.
Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din also encouraged residents to download the Volunteer Smartphone Patrol (“VSP”) app so they could immediately channel information of a crime incident to the police.
“With the VSP app, there is two-way interaction between the rakyat and PDRM,” he said, adding that users could also upload photos and videos should they witness a crime happening near them.
To date, about a million people had registered for the app which is available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone users.
All in all, kudos to Tropicana senior security manager Ismail Saleh and his team as well as the TRA for having organised such a memorable and educational event for the benefit of greater public security and safety.
