This is an effort to boost confidence and security among investors and factory owners nationally and internationally so as to continue to invest and support the country’s economy.
Selangor State Secretary, Datuk Mohammed Khusrin Munawi said that the police booth worth RM150,000was a step towards combating and reducing crime, especially in industrial areas of the state.
“With this, more investors will come to Selangor as there is a safety guarantee provided by the police and the government,” Khusrin explained in a media conference.
He said the above comment during the hand-over ceremony of the Bukit Raja, Klang Industrial Area Police Booth by the government to the police.
He added that the sum of investment in the Bukit Raja Industrial Area since August 2012 is RM384 mil that is a significant contributor to the rough output of the country (KDNK).
Therefore, safety measures must be increased in the area to reflect the determination of the state government to assist the police in combatting crime at industrial areas.
“Half of the cost of the booth was financed by the factory owners and for that I give my thanks,” he said.
The police boothe is the first built in the industrial area in Selangor and it is operational 24 hours a day for the purpose of access and convenience of communication between the factory and the police.
A replica of the police booth key was given by Khusrin on behalf of Selangor to the Chief of Police in Selangor, Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah.
As many as six police officers were assigned to the police booth located opposite Nestle Products Sdn Bhd factory, complete with a Police Record System (PRS) for ease of lodging complaints.
The proposition to build the booth was voiced by the factory owners following a series of break-ins and container hijacking resulting in a loss of millions of ringgit and a disturbance in the production line.
