SUBANG JAYA: Residents of USJ 13 received 10 bicycles to help them patrol their neighbourhood under the housing estate's voluntary patrolling scheme.
The bicycles were handed over to the residents by Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh and Kelana Jaya member of parliament Loh Gwo Burne at the launch of the scheme.
"I hope that the Ministry of Home Affairs will increase the police presence in Subang Jaya. The 16 patrol cars are not enough, judging from the crime rate here," she added.
Loh also urged more police deployment in the area, considering the high density of people in Subang Jaya. He also pledged to provide walkie talkies soon to assist the patrolling team.
The scheme has attracted 21 residents so far. They will patrol the neighbourhood at designated times.
USJ 13 Rukun Tetangga president Khairul Izham Mokhtar said he hoped more residents will join the patrolling team.
"With more members, we can increase the frequency of the patrolling," he said.
He added that residents can also view the patrolling scheme as a fitness activity.
Besides the police, the scheme is supported by the Fire and Rescue Department.
