Supporting the Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) in appreciation of their tireless efforts
KUALA LUMPUR, 16 February 2021 – Amidst the current pandemic that has pushed the limits of Malaysia’s heroic frontliners towards superhuman levels, SOCAR Malaysia has contributed RM10,000 towards the Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT)’s club fund, which provides social welfare support and organises communal activities for the members .
“SOCAR Malaysia has had the opportunity to work with the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) to enhance safety for all SOCAR users on the platform, and we recognise that in keeping Malaysians safe at all times, the PDRM are taking on a great responsibility that can put their own safety and wellness at risk. During the pandemic, Malaysians have seen the tireless efforts of the PDRM, and some of these men and women in blue have sacrificed their physical wellbeing in their efforts to maintain law and order. At SOCAR, we are always ready to support the police, and as a company, we believe that trust and safety are key pillars that empower the sharing economy. Through this contribution, we hope to do our bit in recognising their tremendous service to Malaysians,” said Leon Foong, Group CEO of SOCAR and TREVO Malaysia.
The club funds are allocated for the welfare needs of PDRM personnel in the Bukit Aman JSPT, including contributions for personnel and their immediate family members who are hospitalised or who have passed away as well as for communal activities such as retirement celebrations and meet-the-public events.
In 2020, a total of 79 police officers received aid from the club fund, amounting to RM47,100. Moving into 2021, the department hopes to continue providing aid and assistance for members and their dependents in need. In addition, the department has also taken their own steps to provide moral support to lighten the burden faced by police officers.
“On behalf of the Bukit Aman JSPT club members, I thank SOCAR Malaysia for their kind contribution to the Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department’s club fund. It is always important for us to ensure that the wellbeing of our PDRM personnel are cared for. As part of our day to day work and also our public engagement initiatives, having a positive relationship with Malaysians from all walks of life, from businesses to ordinary citizens, is key to our success. We continue to welcome contributions and collaborations that can help us do more for our club members and strengthen our ability to engage with the community,” said YDH DCP Dato’ Azisman Alias, Director of the Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department.
