Display Police hotline numbers prominiently in public areas
IPOH – The police hotline number should be made available in common places in all residential areas. Ipoh deputy police chief (administration) Superintendent Ahmad Termizi Abd Haq told The New Straits Times, this would enable residents to contact the police immediately during an emergency.
“The number can be displayed at the playground, community hall, places of worship or any common place that is shared by residents,” he said this at a community policing programme in Kampung Kepayang here recently.
Also present was Ipoh deputy police chief (operations) Superintendent Anuar Othman.
Anuar advised the residents of Kampung Kepayang to call the Ipoh district police hotline to report a crime, even though the area falls under the administration of three different police stations — Kampung Simee, Central and Sungai Senam.
He said police would be able to provide prompt response if the public called the hotline number directly as opposed to making reports at police stations.
“Since the villagers have also complained that they are confused which police station they should go to, it would be easier for them to call the hotline,” said Anuar.
The public can call the Ipoh police hotline at 05-254 2222 to report any crime.
