CLOSE ON the heels of a briefing held recently on the neighbourhood watch programme as an effective measure to prevent crimes in the country, the Brunei-Muara Police District and Central Police Station made several observational visits to Kianggeh and Kota Batu to monitor the surroundings of both villages in relation to criminal activities.
Present at the visit were Acting Brunei-Muara District Officer, Mohammad Sunadi bin Hj Buntar, Acting Commanding Officer of Brunei-Muara Police District, Superintendent of Police Mazalan bin Hj Yakub, Commanding Officer of Central Police Station, Assistant Superintendent of Police Hj Naguib bin Dato Paduka Hj Ismail, as well as penghulus and village heads.
The observational visits were aimed to provide a clear picture of the implementation of effective crime prevention strategies in the villages. The visits were also aimed to foster closer ties between the Royal Brunei Police Force and the neighbourhood watch around the villages.
The Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) recently urged village residents and grass root leaders to revive the neighbourhood watch programme and help the RBPF in its efforts to mitigate crimes in their villages.
