 THE crime rate in USJ from January to July 19 this year has dropped by 22.7% or 246 cases.

The statistics were revealed at a dialogue organised by Kelana Jaya MCA at its office in USJ 1, Subang Jaya.

Officer-in-charge of USJ 8 police station Insp Chia Bee Chuan said the number of cases reported fell from 884 to 683, compared with the same period last year.

“There has been a decrease of 146 property crime cases (including house break-ins and stolen vehicles) from 649 to 548.

“Serious crime such as robbery, murder and others that caused serious injuries dropped from 190 to 145.”

However, Insp Chia said daytime break-ins had increased by 11 cases.

“Some of these cases were caused by the residents’ carelessness. They thought they were only going out for awhile and so they left their house gates wide open,” she said.

When a resident wanted to know the police’s stand on the gated and guarded scheme, Insp Chia said the police neither supported nor opposed it.

IPD Subang Jaya senior investigating officer ASP Shaizal Md Som stressed that the scheme did not guarantee a crime-free neighbourhood but it was a deterrent.

“It can assist police by giving information like logbook records and CCTV camera recordings.

“For non-gated and guarded communities, the residents can practice the neighbourhood watch to reduce crime,” said ASP Shaizal.

Well attended: The dialogue was attended by some 30 party members and USJ residents.

Insp Faridah Ramli from the public affairs department encouraged residents to register as Rakan Cop by typing POLISSELDAFTARname to 32728.

A resident also highlighted the problem of indiscriminate parking in Taipan at night.

IPD Subang Jaya traffic point-duty officer Insp Mohd Zul Helmi Khalid said enforcement was carried out based on complaints.

The dialogue, attended by some 30 MCA members and USJ residents, was chaired by Kelana Jaya MCA chairman Ong Chong Swen.

She encouraged the participants to share the information they got from the event with their family and friends.

Mak Meng Chin, who initiated the Voluntary Patrol Unit (VPU), welcomed more residents to join the patrolling effort from 9am to 5pm on weekdays in two-hour shifts.
