Crime Cases In Petaling Jaya Dropped By 15.8 Per Cent Last Year

PETALING JAYA, Jan 2 (Bernama) -- The number of crime cases in the district dropped by 15.8 per cent or 792 cases last year, said Petaling Jaya district Police Chief ACP Mohd Zani Che Din.

He said throughout the whole of last year a total of 4,215 crime cases were recorded compared with 5,007 cases in 2016.

Mohd Zani said the number surpassed the target of 10 per cent which had been set last year for the district which was also among the highest contributing districts to the crime index in Selangor.

"Despite the decline, the police will continue to emphasise on (street crime cases) such as snatch theft, robbery and motorcycle theft because such cases are still the largest contributor to the statistics with 1,255 cases in 2016 and 965 cases last year," he told a press conference after attending the Back to School programme at Sekolah Kebangsaan La Salle, here today.

According to him, each year the police would assess and formulate new strategies in order to ensure the effectiveness of efforts to combat crime.

On the Back to School programme which was held in collaboration with the Education Ministry, Mohd Zani said it was part of their efforts to prevent juvenile delinquency.
