Safety should be the way of life. - 2012/08/21 04:03Indeed, safety should be the way of life here, in Malaysia. This is an important topic in our daily lives.
However, why is it that there is no space for our members' comments under/in this topic at the main news area contributed by our member?
I would like to say that for safety measures to begin with, first the police' contact telephone number should be made a three digit, and ONE ONLY - so as to be so simplified and easy to remember or recall. This is of utmost importance and is necessary because during times of distress, those in need of police' assistance would be able to quickly recall the telephone number in order to contact the police and seek immediate police assistance and presence. This is necessary - but only, if the NATION CARES.
Today, 999 is used for making calls classified under 'emergency' only - without any specificity. Try calling 999 and see how frustrating and how lax the attendants are towards the callers' 'emergency' calling response. '999' replies and responses are a disappointment to callers. First, too many questions are asked. Then, too many of the callers' details are needed by them. Is this the manner of handling any emergency situation?
Why not make it a more serious emergency response by placing attendants who understand what distress to others means and how much effort they ought to put into their own committments and work when they are attached to this department?
If 999 is NOT SERIOUS, the criminals would be relaxed and free!
