As we all know, crime is an action which is something that we are not supposed to encourage. We need to be cautious and stay alert even if it is broad daylight. We can describe the definition of crime as an action that is punishment by the law known as a crime. Many actions of crime that we can see like trafficking, smuggling, violent gang wars, kidnapping and the most violent crimes that have scared netizens are rapping and murders. Based on my research, snatch theft and crime index 2017 in Kuala Lumpur rose to 1,010 cases compared to 640 cases for the same period last year. There are many factors why criminal crimes increase because people need to survive in this urbanized country, therefore, they are encouraged to commit crimes in order to live in this increasing cost of the living era. In this essay, I would like to discuss few preventions how to reduce criminal cases increase. There are three main ways how to reduce criminal cases which are re-introduction of Civics and Citizenship Education (PSK) subjects, create a city-safe and secure city concept and last but not least crime prevention campaigns can also be held at each school.
First of all, the re-introduction of Civics and Citizenship Education (PSK) subjects to primary and secondary school are one of the prevention of how to reduce criminal cases. This PSK subject is one way to creating youth’s noble character and aims to nurture pure values in every teenager. An individual is able to solve the problems he faces without the elements of violence, culture, understanding religious diversity and being able to contribute to national development through the re-introduction of this subject. According to Balakrishan, V. (2017) “it is gradually climbing the stepping stool as an imperative subject to teach understudies about existence decisions, how to settle on such decisions and live with the outcomes of these decisions”. Therefore, re-introduction of Civics and Citizenship Education or special subjects that teenagers can learn is one of the preventions of how to reduce criminal cases.
Additionally, among the initiatives we can take as a step to prevent the crime being the most important issue in the country is to create a city-safe and secure city concept. This concept covers a very large scope for discussion. Various measures have been taken in the process of creating a city and a safe city concept. Among them are the escort by certain parties such as Rela, Rukun Tetangga, Polis and others in order to ensure that the area is free from theft cases, robbery, rape, snatch and so on. With the escorting of teams, at least they can scare the criminal from doing their activities and in turn create a city-safe and secure city concept. Help from today’s technology tools can help us perfect the concept of safe city and town. Closed-circuit cameras can be installed as a precautionary measure. According to Yunos, M. Y. M. (2015) “innovation that can bolster walkable condition in averting mischances and distinguishing culprits, for example, cctv and human reconnaissance”. This simple can be evidence of a crime occurring in the area. If the concept of city and town is safe to be created, it would be a sense to have the criminals from doing activities in the area. In this way, the concept of city and town is clearly an effective effort to prevent crime.
In addition, crime prevention campaigns can also be held at each school. Various regular campaigns are held to raise awareness among adolescents especially primary school level. This is because students at this level are less vulnerable to criminal activity. With this, they will be afraid of committing crimes after engaging in awareness campaigns held at schools. Among the many crime-prevention campaigns often held at schools are such as video shows, exhibits organized criminal activities and obliging complainants to police officers to present giving a speech on the crime, the consequences and punishment of the offender. According to Norbaiti Phaharoradzi (2016) “the police will keep on drawing in with people in general through its Crime Prevention and Community Safety Department by consistently sorting out exercises and projects to make better awareness on crime prevention”. Therefore, awareness campaigns should be held to raise the awareness of teenagers who have been very worried over the past.
Therefore, there are different endeavors to handle social jihad in the nation. All gatherings ought to participate in fighting criminal exercises with the goal that these negative exercises won’t proceed and are not kidding. As of late, the Melaka Transport Division (JPJ) has controlled roadways, particularly amid the night to screen street conditions with the goal that no unlawful exercises would happen like illicit dashing. This JPJ activity is having the right to be done as such that other criminal exercises can stay away from. After some time, rempit declined to run wrongfully because of a paranoid fear of the move made by the specialists. In that capacity, social violations can be decreased from spreading in Malaysia.
