Bicycles for USJ 13 patrol team

Recently, I purchased 10 bicycles for the Rukun Tetangga USJ 13 to assist them in patrolling the neighbourhood. Even though security is not under the jurisdiction of the Selangor State Government but the Home Ministry, I firmly believe we should all fight crime together. Therefore, I have used my state allocation to purchase these bicycles for the residents.

Below is the article from the Streets, NST:

SUBANG JAYA: Residents of USJ 13 received 10 bicycles to help them patrol their neighbourhood under the housing estate's voluntary patrolling scheme.

The bicycles  were handed over to the  residents by Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh and Kelana Jaya member of parliament Loh Gwo Burne at the  launch of the scheme. 

"I  hope that the Ministry of Home Affairs will increase the police presence in Subang Jaya.  The 16 patrol cars are not enough,  judging from the crime rate here," she added.

Loh also urged more police deployment in the area, considering the high density of people in Subang Jaya.  He also pledged to provide walkie talkies  soon to assist the patrolling team.

The scheme has attracted 21 residents so far. They will patrol the neighbourhood at designated times.

USJ 13 Rukun Tetangga president Khairul Izham Mokhtar said he hoped more residents will join the patrolling team.

"With more members, we can increase the frequency of the patrolling," he said.

He added that residents can also view the patrolling scheme as a fitness activity.

Besides the police, the scheme is  supported by the Fire and Rescue Department.

Restoration of football field in USJ 11

Article in Selangor Times :

SUBANG JAYA: The USJ 11/1 football field, which has been plagued with patches of barren soil for the past few years, has now been replanted with grass by the local council.

“It will take three months for the grass to grow,” said Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) Youth, Sport and Culture senior assistant director Muhammad Zaki Yusoff.

The council will then carry out rolling works to ensure the 10,988 sq metre field is level.

Muhammad Zaki was speaking to the press during a visit at the field on Tuesday.

He said the estimated cost to repair the field was RM180,000 but after an open tender, the field was patched up for RM150,000.

“Field maintenance will be RM5,900 a month, which includes cutting grass twice a month, fertilisers, and cleaning nearby futsal courts.”

Work to construct drains around the field to prevent water retention will be completed in three weeks.

“The field is now much nicer. It used to be so sandy from soil erosion that you could make sandcastles here,” said resident Gary Wong.

He said the field, together with the futsal court, volleyball court, and skateboard park next to it, enjoyed heavy usage by residents from the surrounding neighbourhoods.

Wong, who has been living in USJ 11 for 16 years, says he now looks forward to bringing his three children to the field to play.

“It is a big improvement. I hope the field can stay like this or even improve further,” said USJ 11/3 Residents’ Association chairperson Jeffrey Khoo.

Also present during the visit was Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh who said the field is the biggest in the area and as such is heavily used.

She called on nearby residents to monitor visitors to the field and advise them not to use it until the grass has fully grown.

Concerning individuals who drink bottled beverages at the field and leave broken glass behind, she urged residents to call the police if they see such people.

“Don’t confront them. Call the police and let the authorities deal with them,” said MPSJ councillor Rajiv Rishyakaran who was also present.

Yeoh added that she will be using her allocation to place more lights at the field for added security at night.
