More cops, more cars, more hqs. The Cabinet approved today 3 immediate measures in response to reports of growing crime in JB:1. Lease shoplots to establish three new district police headquarters [in JB Timur, Nusa Jaya, and Kulai] as soon as possible;In case you are wondering, Nusa Jaya is Johor's new administrative capital, the nerve centre of the Iskandar Development Region. I am not certain of the crime rate in that place or if the measures are sufficient or if the situation in JB is as bad as reported.
2. Deploy 400 more cops; and
3. Send 200 more patrol cars to the city
But a blogger, in his posting earlier, advised Singaporeans to stay away from the IDR in view of the recent crime spree in JB. The IDR is meant primarily to atract Singapore investors.
Read Big Dog's Singaporeans, better stay away! and the Bernama's piece here on the Cabinet's move.
