CITY po­lice have launched its e-re­port­ing fa­cil­ity for non-crime re­lated re­ports fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the pi­lot project ini­ti­ated at the Ta­man Tun Dr Ismail sta­tion in March.

City po­lice chief Datuk Amar Singh Ishar Singh launched the fa­cil­ity for all six dis­tricts un­der the city po­lice head­quar­ters.

Speak­ing at the launch, he said the on­line re­port­ing sys­tem was found to be a vi­able one in the two months or so that it had been in use at the TTDI sta­tion.

“For any re­ports in KL that does not have any el­e­ment of crime, the pub­lic can now lodge re­ports and print them out from the com­fort of their homes. They don’t have to go to the sta­tions to lodge re­ports,” he said.

Amar said one of the rea­sons the de­ci­sion was made to launch the sys­tem was also be­cause it was found that the vast ma­jor­ity of re­ports filed in the city in­volved no el­e­ment of crime.

He said, over the past few years, up to 90 per cent of the re­ports lodged at city po­lice sta­tions in­volved no crim­i­nal el­e­ment.

With the e-re­port­ing sys­tem, the pub­lic can lodge re­ports should they lose any im­por­tant doc­u­ments, such as MyKad, pass­ports and driv­ing li­cences, pro­vided these are not stolen, or if a for­eign do­mes­tic helper runs away.

How­ever, those in­tend­ing to use the sys­tem will have to reg­is­ter first, so that their iden­ti­ties can be ver­i­fied.

The sys­tem is open only to Malaysians aged 18 and above.

Those who want to use the sys­tem can go to ere­port­ing.rmp.gov.my to reg­is­ter.

Amar also launched a fa­cil­ity that al­lowed the pub­lic to check on the progress of in­ves­ti­ga­tions into any re­port they had lodged.

Called Sis­tem Se­makan On­line, it can be ac­cessed at sso.rmp.gov.my and also re­quires regis­tra­tion.
