PETALING JAYA: Street crimes have been reduced by more than half in 12 hotspots in the peninsula, said Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Chor Chee Heung.
He said this resulted from the installation of railings along pedestrian walkways, safety mirrors and closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) under the Safe Cities programme.
“We find that if there are such features installed in an area, it is effective,” said Chor after a field visit to Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI), which is one of the latest townships to pilot the programme. 
The scheme was introduced in 2004 to ensure cities were free from crime, social ills and accidents.
The Home Ministry had allocated RM1.45mil for the scheme to be implemented in TTDI.
To date, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has installed seven safety mirrors at the commercial area in TTDI. 
Three emergency hotline notice boards were also put up in Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi, Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad and Jalan Dato' Sulaiman.
“The Safe Cities programme is part of the National Key Results Area (NKRA) on crime reduction,” said Chor.
“However, this is a collective effort and the Government and local authorities have to work together with the residents,” he added.
