The public is urged to provide the police with information that would help in solving criminal cases.
During a belated Chinese New Year open house, hosted by the Ipoh District Police Headquarters at the Town Hall on Friday, February 28, state police chief Senior Deputy Commissioner Dato’ Acryl Sani bin Hj Abdullah Sani told media representatives, “Don’t hesitate to contact the police. We’ll try our level best to provide unbiased service to everyone.”
He took the opportunity to thank those who attended the open house. He added, “The police always observe open houses for all major festivities with the objective of fostering good relationship and unity. We aim to create a peaceful and harmonious society for all Malaysians. We are neutral in protecting all members of society.”
The open house was graced by about 500 people. They included police personnel from 24 police stations within Ipoh led by the district police chief, Assistant Commissioner Sum Chang Keong, community leaders, members of non-governmental organisations and community voluntary service groups.
Guests were entertained by a pair of energetic traditional lion dancers and Chinese drums performance. While they feasted on the vast array of food and delicacies, the Ave Maria Convent Chinese Orchestra presented Chinese New Year folk songs on stage.
Ten underprivileged senior citizens from Buntong and ten children from Hannah Home, who are orphans or from broken homes, received ang pow from the state police chief.
