THIS year, Gugusan Manjoi has been picked by the Ipoh City Council for the Safe City programme in a move to help reduce crime rate here.

Datuk Bandar Datuk Harun Rawi said Gugusan Manjoi, which is classified as a black spot, was chosen as part of the programme under the National Key Results Area’s (NKRA) Safe City Initiative.

He said the programme which aimed to reduce the fear if crime would be via the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design concept popularised in the United States.

“Such programmes held at the Sri Kepayang and Ashby Road flats in Ipoh last year have shown success in reducing fear of crime.

“The living environment there is also much better after the programme was launched,” he said in his maiden speech at the council’s full board meeting last Thursday.
