Perodua Donates 4 Patrol Cars to the Malaysian Royal Police
Perodua is contributing 4 Axia units to the Malaysia Royal Police Department (PDRM) to be used as community patrol vehicles as part of the police force’s continuous efforts in combating crime. The 4 Axia units were delivered to Bukit Aman, with Perodua represented by Dr Zahari Husin, Managing Director of Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd while accepting on behalf of PDRM is the Inspector-General of Police YHD Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
“We hope that our contribution, which we wish to call ‘community patrol cars’ will assist our dedicated police officers while on duty,” Aminar said.
PDRM will utilise 2 units of the Axia as a proper community patrol car for the Brickfields Police Station and the TTDI Police station each; while the remaining 2 units will be utilised by AMANITA, a special taskforce created by the police force to fight crime by engaging the community in general and housewives in particular. To this end, PDRM has assigned a female inspector as a “peace lady” to engage communities and housewives to uncover and solve unreported crimes. In total, the Malaysia Royal Police Department has been deploying over 670 Perodua vehicles in carrying out their duties in various capacities since 1995.
“The Perodua Axia is Malaysia’s first Energy Efficient Vehicle (21.6KM/Litre) and it is an ideal patrol car as it is made for easy driving, handling and manoeuvring in high traffic areas,” Aminar said.
In addition, Aminar said, the large boot space can accommodate police equipment with easy access and the Axia is highly suitable for rural and urban usage. “Aside from the protection of the police force, we hope that everyone stay safe during the long Chinese New Year holidays – especially on the roads when journeying to see their families and loved ones. We, at Perodua, wish our Chinese friends Gong Xi Fa Chai!” Aminar said.
