BINTULU: One platoon of the General Operations Force (GOF) will be set up in this division soon, said Sarawak Commissioner of Police Datuk Mohmad Salleh at a media conference recently.

Without stating the exact date the new platoon would be set up, he said an application had been forwarded to Bintulu Development Authority (BDA) to find a strategic site to locate the GOF camp.

He said a platoon of around 40 to 50 GOF officers in Bintulu will be an addition to the three GOF battalion camps in Sarawak, namely the 10th battalion camp in Sibu, the 11th in Kuching and the 12th in Miri.

Speaking to reporters after chairing a three-day state Royal Malaysian Police Leadership Meeting at ParkCity Everly Hotel recently, Mohmad disclosed that the crime index in Sarawak for December last year so far has shown some decline of 10.35 per cent compared to the previous month.

Also present at the press conference were Bintulu police chief Superintendent Sulaiman Abdul Razak and other district police chiefs.

  1. A decline in the crime index of over 10% is very impressive.
