Restructure police force to put more men and women in blues to fight crimes in the streets

In my opinion,  poor and sluggish economy and inefficiency of police force were the two main factors for escalating crime rates in the country.The  rosy picture of economic health was the work of spin-doctors. The real market on the ground is sluggish and the employment rate is on the rise. Many of these unemployed who were of weak characters will take chances and risk their lives in criminal activities for survival.Inefficiency of the police force would have indirectly “encouraged” more criminals to take the streets. We cannot wait for the government to recruit another 60,000 officers by 2010. What we need is an immediate restructuring of the police force. PDRM should cut down the number of officers in departments such as the Special Branch, FRU and outriders in order to place more men and women in blues to to fight crimes in the streets. Do you know that only 6,661 out of 100,000 police officers were involved in fighting crimes at the moment?

On the other hand, gangsterism and Mat Rempit have been haunting Malaysians in general and we need the police to take actions to curb their activities. They have already gone outof hand in recent years.We were very concerned with politicians who lend their support to Mat Rempit and gangsters in this country. They were , of course, leaders of the ruling Barisan Nasional parties.

DAP Selangor will be meeting the Selangor CPO some time in March. We will be organising an English forum on fighting crimes in PJ immediately after the CNY holidays. We will also hold a few more forums in Klang and other areas.

A special leaflet on fighting crimes is also in the pipeline.It will be launched in conjunction with the Women’s Day on March 8 this year.

昔日打击罪犯英雄成受害者
政府受促妥善分配警队人力

雪州行动党呼吁政府调整警队现有的资源,同时提升警队的执行效率,以保障马来西亚人民的安全。雪州行动党主席欧阳捍华在一场记者会上,针对前槟州总警长马骐骝遇害事件提出了两大疑问:(一)如果前警察总长都能成为罪案的受害者,一般普通百姓如何能够豁免?
(二)警方是否能够有效打击高居的犯罪率?

成立“反对罪案运动小组”

雪州行动党决定成立一个以秘书刘永山为首的“反对罪案运动小组”,同时将在今年3月与雪州总警长依斯迈奥玛展开对话,并举办两场讲座会,呼吁民众提高警惕。

欧阳捍华认为,马骐骝事件不是单独个案,因为类似案件在过去也曾发生。

“昔日打击罪犯的英雄,今日成为罪案的受害者,这对马来西亚的治安来说,是一大讽刺。”

雪州行动党领导层今早于该党雪州总部召开记者会,其他出席者是非政府组织局主任刘天球、雪州副秘书张菲倩,以及双溪威支部主席甘南(T Kanan)。

镇暴队和贵宾保镖浪费警力 

刘永山指出,我国拥有十万名警员,但是只有6661名警员属于罪案调查组(CID),与总数不成正比。因此,该党要求政府重新分配警队人手,加强打击罪案的警力。

他补充,虽然首相曾表明将增加6万名警员,但是目前的问题并非警力不足,而是人手分配不均的问题。

对此,刘天球指出,将大部分的警员分配到镇暴队及充当贵宾保镖,是一种资源的浪费。

“我们出去示威,需要那么多镇暴队来“照顾”我们吗?我国的治安不去维持,却用大批警员来镇压示威行动,这合理吗?”

士拉央八打灵巡逻车不获使用

刘天球也举出一些具体例子,“我们可以发现士拉央及八打灵警局目前仍存有近50部巡逻车,没有获得妥善使用,假设加以使用这些警车,就能加强警员的巡逻,对人民来说是百利而无一害”。

“我观察这两间警察局很久了,不明白为何不曾有警员驾过这些巡逻车,一直将它们停泊在警局内,我在猜想他们是不是不够人手?”

经济低靡引发罪案

刘天球表示,国家经济与治安息息相关。虽然我国2006年的贸易额突破1兆令吉,政府宣称经济大有好转,但实际上经济依然处于低潮,失业问题也日益严重。

“通常当一个国家的经济出现问题时,犯罪率就会增加,因为当人们开始失业或生活紧逼时,就会铤而走险去做犯法的事。相反的,如果一个国家经济稳定,人人有工作的话,安居乐业,犯罪率自然减少。”

刘天球也对警队的工作效率感到不满,因为据马骐骝侄女所说,在马骐骝案件中,虽然其家人立即打电话报警,但匪徒却能大摇大摆,慢条斯理地离开现场,警员在报警30分钟后才姗姗来迟。
