A request has been sent to Sungai Siput District Police Contingent for a discussion on the crime in Jalong Tinggi (the Orang Asal settlement which consist of 10 villages). All the 10 Batins and a few Orang Asal community leaders and myself shall be attending the discussion once the date has been ascertain by the police.
Matter arising: sales of alcohol and liquor, gambling activities, unknown and unrelated people to entry to Orang Asal settlements for activities, etc.
The Sungai Siput Distict Police Contingent responded to the request for a dialogue with the 'orang Asal' in Jalong Tinggi on 5 April, 2014 at 10 a.m. in Simpang Jalong police station. All Batins attended accept Kg. Plantuk. The 2 hours discussion is fruitful as the OCPD Sungai Siput agreed to look into the problems arise. The police contingent and the 'orang Asal' will work together closely to eliminate crime.
2 main issues brought up were (1) sales of alcohol and (2) foreigners stay-in. At the same time is was a get to know session since the OCPD, Supt. Kasuahdi Ali was posted to Sg. Siput 4 months ago. Sergent Major Kesavan (Simpang Jalong police station OC), Sergent Azman (Spg. Jalong police station) and a few SB attended the dialogue.
