The first batch underwent a two-month basic auxiliary police course at Pulapol in Bukit Sentosa, Rawang.
“They will be posted at selected Sime Darby townships and developments in Elmina East, Bandar Bukit Raja, Bukit Jelutong and the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club,” he said.Jauhari said the establishment of the unit was to boost the present security service system at all its townships, developments and assets as well as to assist the police to combat crime effectively.
“It is also in support of the government’s National Blue Ocean Strategy (NBOS) to enhance the health, safety and security needs of the nation,” he said.
Jauhari also said that the CCTV facility was part of the Safe City initiative between Sime Darby Property and the police to boost security in Ara Damansara. After upgrading the CCTV facility, it was handed over to the police, which was accepted by Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim at the event.
“Sime Darby Property is committed to improve the security within all our townships, for peace of mind of the communities residing in our townships.
“We are continuously proactive, providing excellent infrastructure, facilities and amenities including security and safety features within all our townships, to ensure a conductive and sustainable living environment for everyone,” said Jauhari.
Meanwhile, Noor Rashid said it was everyone’s responsibility and not just the police to maintain security in a community. “The unit is complementing our police force. We are then able to focus our efforts at other places,” he said, adding that the upgraded CCTV technology would be of great help to them.
