We’re working on it, deputy IGP says on breakdowns in reporting system

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Mazlan Mansor speaks at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur today.
KUALA LUMPUR: Police today assured that they are upgrading the reporting system at police stations following complaints of frequent breakdowns by officers working at the counter.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Mazlan Mansor said the system crashes do not cause any disruptions as police reports and investigations can still be done manually.
However, he said they are working to improve the situation with upgrades to the IT systems at stations.
FMT reported last week that officers are often bogged down by computer system crashes at stations, which add to the challenges of carrying out administrative tasks including handling police reports.
An officer at a station said the system breakdowns occurred frequently, to the point that the nickname “System Down 1Malaysia” was coined.
Speaking at a press conference here after the launch of a new online recruitment service for the police, Mazlan said investigations are ongoing into the explosion at a general operations force (PGA) post near the Malaysia-Thailand border, believed to be caused by smugglers.
“I cannot confirm who the suspect is,” he added. “We cannot point to a Thai national or any national at all, at this point.”
According to Northern Brigade commander of Hulu Kinta PGA, Perak, SAC Abdul Ghani Mohamad Ji, the security post was attacked at approximately 11.20am on Monday.
He said while the PGA team was fortifying its defences, it came under further attack from two rockets at about 12.40pm.
Abdul Ghani said he believed the explosions were meant to threaten members of the PGA following its successful mission against efforts to smuggle ketum into the country.
On the trend of modified bicycle racing, Mazlan said there were any number of criminal offences which could come under police investigation.
He said action could even be taken against the parents of youth found to engage in the activity, on grounds of neglecting their children’s safety.
The issue entered the limelight after eight teenagers were killed in an accident while racing two years ago.
The Magistrate’s Court yesterday acquitted and discharged the sales promoter charged with reckless driving in that incident. - FMT
