Ridiculous to restrict PJ auxiliary police unit ops
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.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
