KOTA KINABALU: Brunei police is seeking to set up a fast information-sharing system with their Malaysian counterparts in tackling crime along the borders.
Its police chief Datuk Seri Mohd Jammy Muhd Shah Al Islam said the setting up of such a system was among matters that were discussed in his meeting with Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Ramli Din here on Monday.
Jammy said such a system was crucial due to the Sultanate’s geographical location of being sandwiched between Sabah and Sarawak.
“We need a close working relationship with Malaysian police to rapidly tackle crimes that could occur along our borders,” a news portal quoted Mohd Jammy as saying.
He said a conducive policy for Bruneians and Malaysians to travel with more security and safety was also discussed.
“Such a policy is necessary as Sabah is a popular destination for Bruneians,” Mohd Jammy added.
Ramli said other matters raised at the meeting were the setting up of an electronic information-sharing platform involving both the police forces, border security matters and ways to tackle incidents such as car thefts and human trafficking.
