Help the Police to Help Us

It is noteworthy that the suspected killers of Lee Kean Yip have been arrested following an anonymous tip-off.

I suggest that the police can do more to get the public to help fight crime and it would not cost much. Make use of the public address systems at transport centers to have short messages at say 15-minute intervals similar to the safety warnings you will hear in all public places in the USA like “Do not leave your luggage unattended....”

I suggest we have the following in the 4 main languages:
“Please report suspicious characters you see in the area. The police need your help to keep you safe. Call (telephone number that should be toll free)”

The police can get companies to sponsor TV adverts that have a similar message and I am sure that after a few months the public cooperation will improve and such incidents will be reduced.

Hmm....wouldn't that send a message to the public and world at large that Malaysia is an unsafe country?? (Info Minister is trying to prevent that kinda publicity)
