PENDANG, June 16 (Bernama) — The Malaysian police (PDRM) aim to achieve a response time of less than five minutes for each report lodged in their effort to combat crime nationwide. Its Management Director, Datuk Abdul Razak Bokhari, said with the state-of-the-art technology and adequate logistics, the shorter response time was indeed achievable.
“Previously, PDRM recorded a response time that was less than six minutes, but the average time was between six and 10 minutes,” he told reporters after opening the new Kubur Panjang police station, here Monday.
Abdul Razak reiterated the PDRM were committed in combating crime because security aspect was one of the preconditions for national development and economic growth.
Thus, he said, the police had always tried to work closely with the public.
Abdul Razak also reminded the police to live up to the motto ‘Integrity is Our Practice’, by proving their dedication to the people.
The new RM5.4 million police station was built on a 3.5-hectare site and is fully equipped with police quarters.
Also present was Kedah police chief, Datuk Syed Ismail Datuk Syed Azizan.
