Our Streets today is not as safe as it used to be and crime rates today are rapidly increasing over the years as stated in newspaper, television and articles in the internet. Safety is a concern for everyone because it plays a big part in our life. Criminals today can be ruthless and the crimes committed these days are mercilessly. Therefore we must take all security measures to prevent crime happening to us.
Firstly, it would be safer if the residents can conduct extensive campaign within the neighbourhood area. Call all the neighbour to join hands and organise a talk. Invite the crime preventive unit personnel from Polis DiRaja Malaysia (PDRM). The personnel can give relevant and useful tips on how to prevent crimes. On top of that, the neighbours too must conduct a weekly patrol by taking turns. This will give them a opportunity to know each other. Hence they can exchange telephone numbers in case of unfortunate events.
Other than that, Martial arts can come in really handy when we are attacked by criminals and no one is around to help us. We can defend our self from those who intentionally want to rob or hurt us. Take martial arts lesson during your day off by joining classes such as Silat Gayong, Taekwondo or Kung Fu. It does not only protect us, it can make us more discipline in the process. On the other hand, it is advisable for women to carry pepper spray and whistle in their purse while walking down the street or after the bank visit for protection . Keep in mind to always remember to stay alert of your surroundings.
Our homes must also be secured by installing top grade security system or just simply locking all door and windows. Many crimes reported today are due to the owner’s carelessness of their own home. Some criminals target a home beforehand especially when the owner is not around. This happens when the owner is taking a long vacation somewhere and during festive season where they usually spend a longer time outside their homes.So install CCTV at home for better protection of our property. CCTV and alarms can alert to us in case of break in and some security system are directly link to the Police.
Crime must be prevented at all costs.This is to make sure everybody is s safe.Take an iniciatiave today to be on the safe side. These are some of the affective ways on how to prevent crime from happening and to keep our community peacefully.Remember that small changes can lead to big difference.So act now.It’s not worth waiting.
