“We view security as one of the important elements of a sustainable township as well as to make our residents and business communities feel safe.With the population increased, there is a greater need to organize more rounds within the residential and business areas in the township to enhance security”.
Freddie said,the presence of a patrol car in 2013 has helped in some way or another to boost the security and we have received positive feedback from the residents that they appreciate the effort taken.
“In view of that, we have decided to add an additional patrol car this year so that the presence could be felt more by the residents and business communities.”
“The safety briefing organized today is to bring the community, developer and the Police in a session to share issues and to get feedback. I hope the cooperation and concerted effort by all parties will benefit everyone in the community”.
MsKayarviliMurugesu, a new resident of JalanBayu said, she has chosen to buy a property at BSA because of the IPD Seri Alam’s presence and the additional service provided by the developer.
