MELAKA, April 6 -- Melaka police will strengthen co-operation with the industrial sector to create a crime-free surrounding and give confidence to local and foreign investors to invest in the state.
Melaka police chief Datuk Abdul Majid Mohd Ali said this included setting up a secretariat between police and the Melaka branch of the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) to work out the best mechanism to ensure public safety and order.
He said it is also an indicator to spur the growth of the sector which is among the major contributors to the state’s economy brought about by a peaceful and safe environment.
‘’Towards this end, the secretariat will seek a model of the safest industrial area abroad or locally as the benchmark.
‘’We want to expose industry entrepreneurs to the importance of strong co-operation with the communities which is important in tackling and curbing crimes,’’ he told reporters in Ayer Keroh here, today.
Earlier, he launched a townhall session with the management of Melaka FMM at the Melaka police contingent headquarters which was also attended by its chairman, Jimmy Ong Kim Heng.
Abdul Majid said among the efforts was to provide advisory services to the managements of factories on crime prevention including efforts to identify the physical and social surroundings which have the potential for crime and boost patrolling in surrounding areas.
‘’In addition, we will also provide them with an understanding on crimes such as robbery or snatch theft cases involving factory workers to enhance co-operation,’’ he added.
