Police review 2010 achievements to set new benchmarks

PETALING JAYA, Nov 23 — The police will review their achievements this year to set benchmarks to improve the force’s performance in 2011.Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said the force was committed to continue being the best safety net in efforts to combat crime.“Generally we saw a drop in the number of criminal cases including street crimes and robbery... this also goes for break-ins which have decreased in most states and we would like to keep it that way.

“The police will look back at past performances to further improve next year. If we are at a good point now... we still want to continue being better,” he told reporters after launching the 22nd Conference of Auxiliary Police Agency Chiefs and Senior Officers at Sunway Pyramid here today.He also said the public must not judge the level of police service by the increase or decrease in criminal cases.

“Those statistics cannot be used to gauge our performance. What’s important is that the community feels safe and at peace to carry out their daily activities without fear of crime,” he said.Regarding the three-day conference which ends tomorrow, Ismail said it focused on discussions and exchange of views on current criminal trends.He said the presence of the auxiliary police also helped to indirectly prevent crime as they were a support unit to the police.Currently, there are about 20,000 auxiliary policemen on duty at 90 agencies nationwide
