SOCAR Collaborates With PDRM To Solve Crimes
The ride-sharing company has helped the police solve at least 34 cases
SOCAR has released a statement today saying they are working closely with the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) to help promote a safer society. SOCAR Mobility Asia Group CEO Leon Foong said the car-sharing platform is giving their full support to the police by sharing information that would help solve crimes more quickly.
This has proven to be effective as information from the company has assisted PDRM in successfully solving 34 cases in the span of eight months from July 2020 to March 2021.
Meanwhile, Bukit Aman Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Director Deputy Comm Datuk Dev Kumar MM Sree said that the public has an important role in crime prevention and information from them has contributed to many solved cases over the years. He assured that those who provide information regarding criminal activities will remain anonymous.
In case you missed it, earlier this year SOCAR contributed RM10,000 to the Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT)’s club fund as a gesture of appreciation to the police force.
Here’s the press release with more:
Private businesses have a role to play in helping the police ensure a safer society, where we all contribute our knowledge and capabilities to help solve crimes and prevent them in the long run. Taking this responsibility to heart, SOCAR works closely with the Royal Malaysian Police in sharing information that helps in cracking cases.
“At SOCAR, we are happy to support the police in information sharing to help solve crimes more quickly, thus ensuring justice for the victims of crime, and helping to promote a safer society in the longer term. While the adoption of technology in our daily life has a vastly positive impact, such technology can sometimes also be abused by those with nefarious intent. As a responsible technology-enabled mobility platform, we work closely with the Royal Malaysian Police to ensure that our services are used responsibly, thus helping to keep Malaysian residents safe while they benefit from greater freedom in mobility,” said Leon Foong, Group CEO, SOCAR Mobility Asia. From July 2020 to March 2021, information from SOCAR has assisted the Royal Malaysian Police in successfully solving 34 cases.
“The police always appreciate the contribution and collaboration of all Malaysian residents – whether they are businesses or individuals, in sharing information that can help us solve crimes more quickly, thus protecting the wellbeing of the people and ensuring that crime does not go unpunished. We hope that potential criminals will be discouraged from their illegal acts when they realise that it is not easy to escape justice in Malaysia, especially with the community supporting PDRM’s efforts. We encourage and welcome information from the public who may have witnessed crimes or have knowledge of criminal activities and assure that the anonymity of individuals who provide information will be protected,” said Deputy Comm Datuk Dev Kumar MM Sree, Bukit Aman CID Director. He shared that information from the public has contributed to many solved cases over the years, underlining the importance of the public’s role in crime prevention.
