THEY may only be auxiliary policemen but their grit and determination to protect and serve is second to none.
And, despite not being exposed to a similar gruelling training programme, they can rival their regular counterparts in discharging their duties to maintain peace and order.
These characteristics were exhibited by the Felda Security Services' auxiliary cops during a demonstration on ways to quell riots, to check street crimes such as snatch thefts and the effectiveness of its light action force and canine units in Seremban recently.
Taking aim: Abu Seman (right) and Mohd Yusof (second from right) trying out their shooting skills at Felda Bukit Rokan's shooting range in Gemencheh.
Felda chairman Tan Sri Dr Mohd Yusof Noor said the auxiliary police unit was set up on June 1, 1976, to provide some form of security in its schemes, particularly those located in remote areas.
The unit, which had a modest beginning, has now swelled to 2,300 officers.
"In 2007, we achieved a milestone when an elite squad was set up whose duties included carrying out intelligence work.
"The establishment of a light strike force, a weapon handling unit and a canine unit then followed suit," he said at the opening of Felda Security Services' shooting range and the unveiling of its canine unit at Felda Bukit Rokan in Gemencheh, Negri Sembilan.Deputy Home Minister Datuk Wira Abu Seman Yusop launched the event.
Mohd Yusof said the setting up of the auxiliary unit has yielded positive results as the teams have managed to keep crime low at the land schemes.
"In fact, our auxiliary cops have also been roped in by the regulars to carry out operations on various occasions," he said.
Mohd Yusof said its dog unit now had 15 German Shephards and these intelligent canines were stationed at Serting, Sahabat, Mempaga Jaya and Trolak Jaya.
Hard at work: A German Shephard from the canine unit stops a snatch thief during the demonstration.
"The dogs were also deployed in our training at oil palm and rubber plantations, the quarters for foreign workers and at our processing plants and their success rate is good," he said, adding that according to statistics, these units have also been successful in checking the number of illegal immigrants.
On a lighter note, Mohd Noor said a dog breeding unit had also been set up recently.
"We bought two female dogs from Germany in December and in February both gave birth to a total of nine pups," he said adding that other enforcement agencies would also be allowed to use the 10.8ha shooting range as well as other facilities availabe like the living quarters, hall and a surau.
Abu Seman commended Felda for setting up its own auxiliary team.
"This will also help us in checking crime particularly in faraway places where the police presence was small," he said, adding that by having more such teams, the government's efforts to reduce street crimes by 20% and the national crime index by 5% annually could be achieved.
He said, at present, there were only two police stations and 61 beat bases manned by 132 police personnel at the 317 Felda land schemes.
Abu Seman said the police were prepared to provide training to the auxiliary cops.
"We are more than happy to be able to provide them with the necessary training which will be shorter than the one for regular recruits," he said adding that the role of the auxiliary units was also important as they had to look after more than a million settlers and their families and some 45,000 foreigners working in the schemes.
"Just like anywhere else, you will have drug abuse, theft, social problems and even vandalism at the Felda scheme," he said.
He said the government has also agreed to grant auxiliary policemen wider powers and they now have similar powers outside their area of jurisdiction.
"From now on, the 14,790 auxiliary cops from 89 agencies are also empowered to carry out their duties outside the workplace. This will help reduce crime," he said.
Abu Seman said the people could also help the authorities to reduce crime by becoming members of Rakan Cop.
As April, 337,459 people had been registered nationwide with 6,471 in Negri Sembilan.
"We need more people to participate as this would benefit everyone," he said, adding that 25 local councils would install 496 CCTV units in the peninsula in July to make cities and townships a safer place to be.
He also advised auxiliary policemen to always obey the law and never to abuse their powers.
