TAWAU: Four additional Neighborhood Watch Communities (Komuniti Rukun Tetangga) will soon be set up for Luyang, said Gee Tien Siong, Luyang Community Development Officer (PPM Luyang). He said that Luyang Police Subdistrict, under KK Police District, requires 12 neighborhood watches (KRTs), due to increased development and housing over the years. “There are currently eight neighborhood watch communities in Luyang Police Subdistrict. One of them would have been more active among the others.


He said neighborhood watch is an approach to building a relationship regarding neighborhood households with the police and local government. The program is seen as an effective mechanism to assist local communities in their efforts to reduce crime rates, police vigilance, and foster neighborhood spirit and unity. Gee, who is also vice chairman of the Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP), said that with four more KRTs for Luyang, we hope he will improve home security and promote harmony in the neighborhood. The team consisting of officers from Luyang UPPM and Luyang Kapitans led by Gee held a meeting last Saturday with Luyang Police Station Chief S/Inspektor Mohd Rashidi bin Nawawi to discuss public security issues, proposals and solutions.


The establishment of more neighborhood watch communities is strongly supported by Mohd Rashidi. He also suggested that the existing idlers in Luyang should be revived and revitalized to continue the good intention of the program.
