Labuan police intensify crime prevention efforts

LABUAN (BERNAMA) – Crime prevention efforts in Labuan are being intensified, with several crime-prone spots selected for the village adoption programme.

Labuan Police Chief Superintendent Muhamad Farid Ahmad said at the moment, two villages under the Temporary Refugee Settlement Scheme namely Kg Kiansam and Kg Muslim had been selected for the programme.

“Engaging with the people in the villages is part of our efforts to combat crime.
