For a good cause

I'm not sure whether you're aware, but there's a voluntary team set up here in Taiping about 4 months ago, called the Pasukan Keselamatan Sukarela Taiping Perak(太平自愿治安队). The purpose of the team is to help police in reducing house break-ins and thieves cases in Taiping. Until today, the team has more than 700 members consist of chinese youngsters/gentlemen, even ladies as well.
TP members will patrol around Taiping and report to each and every member if they spot anything suspicious.

There was an exclusive interview with the team leader last week, check out ChinaPress Saturday (21/8/2010) edition ok.

To become a voluntary TP member, all you have to is to pay RM 380 to get this walkie talkie set, there'll be an unique number assigned for you (and you can request own lucky number provided the number is available). all communication using the walkie talkie must be of official purpose only.



thanks to the prompt actions and helps, they have successfully overcome numerous thieve cases in Taiping! I hope with their helps, police will gain more man power to bring peace and harmony to our beloved Taiping town.
of course whatever missions they involved, safety always come first!

their head office is situated at Kampung Boyan, same row with Weng Sang shop.

  5. Hi Hayley, my time too during the '60s and '70s there was a spate of home invasions as well the notorious 'orang minyak'....and the government formed similar to this Taiping one, but called 'Rukun Tetangga' and only men from each house in locality take turns patrolling the streets, roads where we live. Up to 4.30am.

    But still the robberies continued.
    And I was one of the unfortunate or fortunate to manage to almost catch the orang minyak too...he tried to break into my house, but I had laid a booby trap for him, and he got cup up very badly too, but got away.
    Pity.

    You take care and have a nice day, Lee.
