MCPF Selangor Deputy Chairman Dato’ Seri A. Thaiveegan ,Selangor Chief of Police and MCPF Selangor advisor Dato’ Noor Azam bin Jamaludin, and Sunway Group’s Senior Managing Director Dato’ KL Tan were present at the event which drew close to 700 participants.
During the town hall session, Sunway Group donated RM 100,000 to the MCPF Selangor Fund. The funds will be used to run community-based crime-prevention programmes across 16 police districts in Selangor.
Sunway Group founder and chairman as well as MCPF chairman Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah said, “Our country is faced with new threats every day. Apart from fighting crimes such as armed robbery, we face even more dangerous threats such as the rise of extremism which severely threatens the harmonious multi-cultural nation that we live in. We believe that crime prevention rests not within the hands of the police alone. We need the cooperation of all levels of society to come together with the authorities and to play their parts. Together we can make Malaysia safe.”
MCPF Selangor aims to actively engage the community at all levels including the school children, students of Higher Learning Institutions, recidivists, prison inmates, the corporate sectors to come together for the cause. The public can look forward to campaigns, seminars, town hall discussions, crime prevention talks and other activities throughout the state by the district liaison committees.
