To ensure the safety of its residents, Pinji Botanics Sdn Bhd has set up a team of 25 auxiliary police that will secure the perimeters of Bandar Seri Botani.
During the launching held in late December, Pinji Botanics invited the director of the Department of Crime Prevention And Community Safety (JPJKK) from Bukit Aman Police Headquarters, Datuk Rusli Ahmad to officiate the affair.
“The team comprises former army, police and members of Malaysia’s Civil Defense Force (APM). With their experience in the field and the training they’ve gone through, I believe that they are more than capable to guard the compound,” said Rusli.
He also added that with the recent addition of new houses at Taman Eko, the residents could be the new target for house burglary, vandalism and other crimes.
The team underwent their training at the Malaysian Police Training Centre (PULAPOL) in Langkawi for 63 days from August 14 to October 13, 2016. The training required each member to be physically primed, deal with legal issues as well as how to handle weapons.
Also attending the event on the day were Perak head of crime prevention and community safety department SAC T. Selvan, Director of Pinji Botanic Sdn Bhd, Chow Siew Wai and Commercial Manager of Pinji Botanic Sdn Bhd, Lee Chaik Hian.
