THE Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) reminded members of the public to be vigilant and take safety precautions during Ramadhan.

During sahur and before leaving their homes, the public are advised to ensure all access points such as doors, windows and gates are properly locked and secured to prevent break-ins.

They should also check that all electronic devices and gas appliances are properly monitored to avoid the occurrence of a fire. For a period of long absence, the public should inform their neighbours.

When visiting Ramadhan stalls as well as heading to mosques for fardhu and tarawih prayers, members of the public are reminded to park their vehicles at designated parking spaces and avoid parking in dark areas.

They are also reminded not to leave any valuables inside their vehicles or in plain sight as it may attract unwanted attention.

The RBPF would also like to remind parents to be aware of their children’s whereabouts and to monitor their activities to prevent any involvement in illegal activities.

In regards to road safety, the public are advised to ensure their vehicles are roadworthy. They are also reminded to avoid speeding and being selfish during the journey, which can result in injuries and damage to public property.

Members of the public are urged to contact the police hotline at 993 or to approach a nearby police station if they encounter any suspicious activity. - Julius Hong
