Two recent burglaries have sounded the security alarm at west bank especially Sg. Bidut area.
Member of Parliament Sibu, YB Oscar Ling concerned on that area safety issue, and then initiated dialogue session with Sibu District Police Department last week, to discuss on the police effort in tackling the crime at west bank.
Official police crime statistic based on reported case is low, and YB Oscar believed the statistic is not reflecting the real situation at west bank now.
Possible reason is residents at west bank are reluntant to report any crime case, and both he and police are urging residents dare to come forward and give information to police, so to help police in fighting with the escalated criminal case.
Police has started patrolling the west bank 3 times a day, but that would not help much if residents are not cooperative during crime scene investigation.
YB Oscar has proposed to install CCTV to guard the property and safety of resident.
Police is welcoming the proposal and suggested few strategy area to install CCTV.Oscar and his team have visited those proposed areas for the CCTV installation suitability and hope once the CCTV implemented, it will help soften the safety issue at west bank. Cooperation and information sharing with police are the keys to the success in criminal fighting.
