KUALA TERENGGANU: The state police will beef-up their presence in the state in conjunction with the Visit Terengganu Year 2013.
State police chief Datuk Jamshah Mustafa said the move to make visitors to the state feel safe.
"When police become omnipresent it will enhance the image of Terengganu as a safe place to visit," he said.
He said mobile police beat bases will also be used to enable them to cover more areas and will also increase their crime-prevention patrol frequency.
He said the state police would welcome private companies willing to donate or sponsor vehicles necessary for its personnel’s increased patrolling duties.
Jamshah was speaking to reporters during the state police Aidilfitri gathering held at the Terengganu Police headquarters here today.
Also present were Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, his wife Toh Puan Seri Norliza Mahmod, Deputy State Police chief Datuk Hamzah Mohd Jamil, senior police officers and community leaders.
More that 5,000 people attended the gathering which kicked-off at about 10am and is aimed to create better relations between the police and local community.
Jamshah said the event is a symbol of appreciation towards the community's involvement in crime prevention and road safety campaigns.
