KUALA LUMPUR, (April 25) — The police have proposed to station their personnel at all island resort centres in Sabah to thwart the entry of criminals or foreigners slipping through the state’s east coast.
Inspector-General of Police, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the presence of security personnel at these resort centres was important as the islands were far apart and isolated.
“Considering the location of these resorts, it is difficult for us to respond quickly.
“If there is a permanent security team at each island resort, criminal activities can be prevented,” he told reporters after launching the Panther 911 Central Monitoring System system here today.
On the system, Khalid said the police would get the company to design the system for application at the Eastern Sabah Security Command (ESScom) area.
Developed by Syarikat Digistar Holdings Sdn Bhd, the system functions like a closed-circuit television to detect the presence of criminals in the waters off ESSCom areas and alert the nearby police stations. — BERNAMA
