ADUN SPEAKS We welcome Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Khalid Abu Bakar’s historic approval of an application by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to create an auxiliary police force unit.

Given rampant crime in Petaling Jaya, MBPJ had been applying to set up the unit since 2009. Its third attempt, in June last year, has finally been approved, according to a Star report yesterday.

However, the IGP’s reported restriction - that the unit must be stationed only at council-owned buildings and the PJ court complex - is nonsensical and ridiculous.
