RBPF, village heads meet to discuss Neighbourhood Watch
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
THE Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) recently met with grassroots leaders for the third quarter Neighbourhood Watch meeting.
The meeting, held at the Brunei-Muara police headquarters, saw RBPF officers, grassroots leaders and village heads discussing various topics including crime prevention patrol schedules.
RBPF said the meeting is important as it acts as a platform for the police and village heads to exchange information.
The Acting Commanding Officer of the Brunei-Muara District Police Superintendent Hj Azree Hj Abd Manaf was present at the meeting, along with village heads from Mukim Gadong A, Mukim Gadong B, Mukim Kota Batu and Mukim Kilanas.
Hj Azree said that majority of the theft that have occurred was due to items not being well looked after, such as the items being left outside the home. He reminded residents to inform neighbours and the police when their house is left unattended.
Meanwhile Acting Officer in Charge of the Central Police Station probationary Assistant Superintendent Mohd ‘Izzuddin Hanis Hj Mohd Salleh touched on crime prevention patrol schedules where he said there should be three to four rotational patrols being carried out in a month.
The meeting also discussed future events such as cleaning campaigns and crime prevention patrols.
