New police control post at Lambak Kanan’s Jalan Terunjing
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
THE new police control post at Jalan Terunjing, Kg Lambak Kanan A, is aimed at significantly reducing police response time to residents in the area.
In an interview with the media, Royal Brunei Police Force Commissioner Dato Paduka Seri Bahrin Md Noor said the main aim of the Terunjing police post was to give ease access to the community in the vicinity whenever they are in need of police assistance.
The police commissioner said this at the launch of the new control post yesterday.
Although only two personnel occupy the post at a time, the establishment of the police post will reduce police response time significantly, he said.
The commissioner also said that crime-related incidents may also potentially pose a challenge.
“In that case the personnel of the post will require further police assistance which involves good communication with police stations,” Dato Paduka Seri Bahrin said.
As traffic has increased in the area, the commissioner also said that the post will serve as a checkpoint for traffic police for directing the traffic.
Acting Officer in charge of Berakas Police Station said that one of the main purposes of the post was to increase police presence by being physically closer to the community.
P/ASP Pg Hj Md Saifulariff Pg Hj Duraman said that should any crime occur, an officer of the post will be dispatched to secure the area first before calling for further assistance if needed.
“(With regards to the crime in the area), Alhamdulillah it is within our control. This post is not for this kampung only but also for the kampungs around Jalan Pasir Berakas and to the Landless Indigenous Citizens Housing Scheme (STKRJ) area in Lambak Kiri,” he said.
The village head of Kawasan 1 RPN Rimba, Hj Adnan Taha, hoped the public would make use of the new control post.
“This post covers five kampongs and will work effectively to tackle any potential delinquent behaviours that may occur in the area,” he said.
According to the RBPF, altogether there are 31 police posts in the Sultanate.
