The Royal Malaysian Police here have launched jet ski patrolling in this district in an effort to enhance their presence in line with the High Profile Policing programme.

Sabah police commissioner Datuk Hamza Bin Taib said jet ski patrolling is relevant in Sandakan as it is one of the state’s hotspots alongside Kota Kinabalu, Penampang, Tawau and Lahad Datu.

“Like the ‘umbrella operation’, which only operates in towns, jet ski patrolling was one of the initiatives mooted by the police to monitor the shore, especially during peak hours,” he said during the launching ceremony of Crime Awareness Day at Harbour Mall yesterday.

Through the National Keys Result Area (NKRA) on crime reduction, the police had and are implementing 29 initiatives or approaches which are High Profile Policing, Community Policing, Media as Partners in Crime Prevention, Fight Crime Facebook, Stop and Talk, Meet and Greet, Feet-on-Street, Rakan Cop, Technology Based Policing and so forth.

“As for the crime rate index for Sabah contingent from January 1, 2012 to November 30, 2012, 5,548 cases had been reported and compared with the same period in 2011 with 6,079 cases reported, we have achieved a reduction of 8.73 per cent.

“Meanwhile, the rate of cases solved was 48.97 per cent and street crime at 48.40 per cent which had achieved the Key Performance Index (KPI) set under the NKRA,” Hamza said.

In Sandakan, from Jan 1 to Nov, there were 592 cases reported and compared with the same period in 2011 with 612 cases reported, this showed a reduction of 3.27 per cent, he added.

Commenting on Crime Awareness Day, Hamza said one of the purposes of the programme is to strengthen the ties between the police and community.

In addition, the police can also increase their knowledge and exposure to the public to better understand the behavior patterns of crimes around them, thus providing more insight on crime prevention.

Through this programme, a networking between the community and police will be created, which would facilitate the dissemination of crime information.

The ceremony was officiated by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman and attended by some 5,000 local residents.
