Latest Update

Dear resident,

Due to numerous attempted and successful house break-ins in the past 4 months, the following actions have been taken by the resident committee to improve security.

1) Barb Wire:
The installation of barb wire is almost complete. We managed to get the developer to sponsor the materials but the workmanship cost is from the collection of our maintenance fee.

2) Additional security guards:
We have employed 2 more security guards for the night shift. As such, total night shift guards is now 4. These 2 additional guards will start work from 11pm – 7am. All the house break-ins happened during the night especially from 3am – 5am, therefore we need more guards to improve security during this period. Cost for these 2 additional guards is from our maintenance fee.

3) Improve security in risky areas:
There are 2 risky areas:-
(i) Near the TNB sub-station:
One guard is station around the TNB and playground entrance from 11pm – 7am every night. This will ensure he can see the backlane of 1/5 facing the Silk highway, backlane of 1/3 facing the playground and also the playground.

ii) Bungalow:
We have one guard stationed in the middle of the bungalow area facing the Silk highway from 11pm – 7am. This ensure he see the backlane of 1/5 and all other bungalows next to the highway.

4) Patrolling BSL1 by police
The committee had written to the Kajang district police chief requesting frequent police patrol in BSL1. This is like putting a “police letter-box” with a log book for the police to mark their attendance. We are hoping to get a firmed “yes” to our request but we managed to speak to the Sg. Long police chief personally and he assured to provide us full coorporation and speedy response to our calls.

5) Light-up dark areas:
The committee had written to the authority via the developer to install 6 additional street lights around BSL1. Work is in progress. One of the dark areas is the TNB sub-station and the empty space next to it. We also planned to install spotlights once we have the street light are in place. The spotlight will point to the backlane of 1/5 and 1/3 which are all facing the highway and playground area. The night shift guard can see more clearly with the spotlight.

6) Car stickers:
New stickers is currently being distributed to all residents. This will tighten overall security by ensuring only vehicle registered with the committee are allow into BSL1. People in vehicles without stickers are assumed to be outsiders and need to register their identity with the guards.

7) House-rules:
BSL1 house-rules are also currently being distributed to all residents. It consist of basic and practical rules to ensure everyone in BSL1 can continue to live in a harmonious, secure and clean environment. Achieving this require the coorporation of all residents and their commitment to follow the rules.

8) Falling off trees and bushes:
The empty area between backlane of 1/5 and the Silk highway is always an area of great concern. The committee has so far cleared bushes and falling trees so that there is no place to hide for the thiefs.

9) Patrolling by resident:
We have formed groups on a voluntary basis comprising resident and committee to patrol BSL1 as and when required. So far we have patrolled 3-4 times targetting at risky areas, risky times (3am-5am), etc.

More updates will come from time to time. Please leave your comment.
