Police to train security guards to tackle perceived crime in shopping malls and carparks

PUTRAJAYA: The police are working on a new module to train security guards to tackle the perceived crime wave in shopping malls and carparks, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein.

He said the police are expected to finalise the training module “as soon as possible” so as to better prepare the 25,000-odd security personnel currently employed by some 330 shopping malls nationwide.

“It is not an issue of whether the crime rate is higher or not. What is important is that the public feels safe,” he said at a press conference after a meeting at his office to set new targets for the second leg of the National Key Results Area (NKRA) for crime.
