Community policing or neighbourhood policing is a policing strategy and philosophy based on the notion that community interaction and support can help control crime, with community members helping to identify suspects, detain vandals and bring problems to the attention of police.

Community policing gallops to success

Community policing gallops to success
Enhancing community policing project will be one of the strategies used by Selangor police in its efforts to curb crime this year.

Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the pilot project conducted at SS20 in Damansara Utama has won good response from the public.

With several policemen on their crime prevention rounds clearly visible on horseback, the crime rate in SS20 has seen a drop of between 20 and 40 per cent since the community policing programme was implemented, Khalid said.

The decrease in crime in the area was also attributed to residents being more aware and pro-active in providing police with information on criminal activities in the area.
After the success in SS20, Selangor police introduced the community policing programme in Damansara Utama.

"We have limited manpower and we have to seek help from the public to assist us in combating crime," said Khalid.

Community policing is a collaboration between police and residents in preventing and busting crime.
