Police monitoring students playing truant

9th January, 2019


KENINGAU: Police are monitoring the movement of students who may be playing truancy during school period. District police chief DSP Shahrudin Mat Husain said that from statistics they collected, school-going children would indulge in unfruitful activities including crime after school hours.

“During school time, they should be in school where they belong,” he said.

According to him, it is important for schools to work together with the police to address such issues like truancy. “If these students are not being advised and educated, they will subsequently get themselves in trouble with the law,” he said.

There have been numerous reports of students caught indulging in drugs and these worry the authorities.

“We are collaborating with the Education Ministry to look into disciplinary problems among students in schools,” he said when speaking at a programme called ‘Jom Datang Ke Sekolah dan Jom Datang Awal Ke Sekolah’ (Come to School, Come to School Early) at SMK Keningau 2, here Tuesday.

He advised students to be smart and think of their future because if they do not receive education, they would end up having a bleak future.

“Students can also help us in fighting crime by not getting involved in wrongdoings like thefts, bullying, and drug taking,” Shahrudin said.

Keningau police are also sending personnel as School Monitoring Officer (PPS) to work with schools in addressing any disciplinary problems among students.

Present was Keningau education officer, Masly Wahip.
