MBPJ Gets Approval for 50 Auxiliary Police Officers


SHAH ALAM, August 19: The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) has given approval to the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to set-up an Auxiliary Police Force to enhance the security of premises belonging to Local Authorities and the Court.

Damansara Utama Assemblywoman, Yeo Bee Yin said that the Auxiliary Police with the strength of 50 members can help PDRM focus their patrols in other areas.

“The application to receive 50 Auxiliary Police members is a pilot project which will be enhanced as needed from time to time,” she said.

Meanwhile, she is also discussing with PDRM to allow for the auxiliary police to patrol other areas.

“We will discuss with the Police because the Auxiliary Police has limited powers. The auxiliary police can only secure MBPJ-owned buildings and courts,” she said.

She said that efforts are being mobilised so that other local authorities in the Klang Valley are also given the same approval.
