PETALING JAYA: Sri KDU today inked the Safecam Partnership memorandum of understanding (MoU) with police aimed to combat crimes.
Sri KDU is the first school in Selangor to sign such agreement with police.
The MoU was signed between Selangor Crime Prevention and Community Safety department deputy (operation) chief Assistant Commissioner Razimi Ahmad and Sri Kdu deputy chief executive officer Eugene Yeoh.
Sri KDU has installed 187 units of closed-circuit television (CCTV) in its compound under the programme.
Petaling Jaya district police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Zani Che Din said Safecam programme was part of the National Blue Ocean Strategy that involved data sharing between police and the private sector.
“This programme is one of the efforts that is being taken by the police to combat criminal activities with cooperation from the local community.
“The installed closed-circuit television can help facilitate police investigation when cases take place. Besides, it will also help with cases that happen near the school," he said in a press conference after the signing ceremony.
Meanwhile, Yeoh said safety was always top on mind of the school management.
“We have a good relationship with police, after discussion, we took the opportunity to ink the agreement.
“The presence of police would help alleviate the children's fear for the men and women in blue. Educating them, that is part and parcel of life,” he said.
