Bandar Sunway, December 18 ~ The Malaysia Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) Selangor chapter recently launched its official website, www.mcpf-selangor.org. The launch, held at Sunway Lagoon Club, was jointly officiated by YDH Dato’ Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah, Ketua Polis Selangor, and Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah, AO, Chairman of MCPF Selangor.
Also present at the event were EXCO members of MCPF, MCPF members from MCPF Selangor, Royal Malaysian Police Force and Sunway Group management team, among others.
The objective of the MCPF website is to enable the public to have a one stop digital platform with convenient access to useful crime prevention information, tips and tricks to prevent crime. The website will also update information on regularly held crime prevention public events like crime prevention talks, meetings, seminars, conferences, forum, and exhibitions which the public can attend for free.
Useful tips on crime prevention such as do’s and don’ts such as, “do not hang handbags on the shoulder to prevent injuries from being snatched and dragged,” and “take note of the direction where the perpetrator heads to in order to aid the police” are amongst the information shared on the website.
The website also features the crime prevention docu-drama produced during Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah’s tenure with the assistance of the Royal Malaysian Police and the Selangor state government, highlighting how the public can help by providing crucial information to the police when witnessing a suspicious activity or when they are caught in a life-threatening situation.
“I hope that through the website, we can reach more people more effectively and further encourage the mobilization of Selangor state citizens to take action at the community level to prevent crime,” said Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah, AO, the Selangor MCPF Chairman who is also the Founder and Chairman of Sunway Group.
He added that the second phase of the website development will include social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter to further galvanize the community to come together to prevent crime.
Since his appointment as the Chairman of the MPCF Selangor, Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah has championed Crime Prevention activities in the State of Selangor with the assistance of Royal Malaysian Police Force. MCPF had organized ‘Balik Kampung Rumah Selamat’ campaigns during festive season, briefing to taxi drivers on how to work together with to prevent crime, Crime Prevention talks and forums.
Prior to the launch of the website, Sunway Berhad had contributed RM150,000 for the development of crime prevention smartphone application, My-Distress which had recently won an award.
