SHAH ALAM – The Selangor police’s replacement of its ageing Proton Wira patrol cars will complete by October.

Selangor police chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said the old cars had been replaced with brand new Honda Civic, in phases since last year.

“Currently, there are 498 mobile patrolling vehicles (MPV) for Selangor and around 200 Honda Civic have been distributed since last year.

“By October, Proton Waja would be changed to an all-new Honda Civic, which would motivate our people (police officers) to do better patrolling.

“Previously, it was only implemented in the town area but it has expanded to other districts,” he told Sinar Daily.

Hussein added that there were more policemen on the road in MPV and motorcycle patrol units (URB) deployed to enhance patrolling and crime prevention.

Meanwhile, when asked if the police would adapt to the usage of body cameras for its personnel anytime soon, Hussein said he hoped that the Federal police would be able to get the body cameras sooner and the state team fully supported the notion.

“It is still in the procurement process," he said.

In February, Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail revealed that the government approved an allocation of RM30 million for the procurement of body cameras for use by policemen on duty.

He said it was an effort by the ministry to increase integrity in the law enforcement department.
