KOTA KINABALU: Two police liaison officers will be assigned to every primary and secondary school in the district where they are expected to give talks to the students twice on a monthly basis.

Its chief, ACP Habibi Majinji said so far there are no issues with primary students and the program will be mostly focused on those in their secondary years.

He said this is due to raging hormones and the rebellious spirit in teenagers during their years of seeking their self-identity which if not supervised could be potentially destructive.

“Previously there were isolated reports of more serious crimes like molestation and drug use amongst students.

“But after collaborating with the Education Ministry and implementing strategical improvements for about two years now the crime rate in schools has dropped to zero,” he told reporters at the Karamunsing headquarters.

He added that gateway vices like smoking and glue sniffing can be deterred through the program as it also involves the police to work closely with teachers and parents of Kota Kinabalu’s 58 primary and 24 secondary schools.

An official from the Education Ministry, Umin Sadi, said most parents tend to defend their children when called out on their mischief.

“The presence of a police body during parent-teacher association meetings could be more fruitful as they can offer a more advanced disciplinary advice,” he said.
