    Johor police on Sunday sought to quash the "exaggerated" perception that the state is unsafe, and that the Malaysian authorities were sloppy.
    Assistant Commissioner of Police Abdul Aziz Ahmad said crime rates in Johor are on track to fall by 7.4 per cent this year from around 19,000 cases last year - an improvement from 26,624 in 2008.
    He added that of the 19,000 cases last year, "only" less than 500 involved Singaporeans. This was despite the 17 million Singaporean entries to Johor last year, said the ACP, who is head of administration at the police headquarters in Johor Baru.
    He was speaking at a crime prevention talk organised by the Johor-Singapore Community Care Association in JB.
    During the lively hour-long address, ACP Abdul Aziz maintained that it was impossible to achieve zero crime. But he conceded that 70 per cent of crime in the state occurs in JB, its capital.
    "People are coming in for better living, and for all types of investment," he said.
    "We're having a conflict between prosperity and security."
    After Johor was identified as a "hot spot state" for crime in 2009, with Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Selangor, RM2 billion (S$784 million) was pumped into Johor by the Malaysian government to beef up the police force.
    Now, there are 8,675 policemen - one for 663 people, said the ACP. Nearly 5,700 auxiliary police have also been trained.


    Since Aug 17, Johor police involved in a nationwide crime crackdown operation dubbed Ops Cantas have also screened 232,000 suspected gang members. Of these, more than 4,000 were arrested.
    But high-profile cases continue to haunt JB, such as one in July last year when armed kidnappers drove off with members of Singaporean entrepreneur Rita Zahara's family in her car.
    The four victims, who included her two children, were released unhurt, but the kidnappers took the car and valuables. These were later recovered.
    "All cases involving Singaporeans are high profile, because we make it high by having an ASP (Assistant Superintendent of Police) to investigate," said the ACP. "In Malaysia, each ASP is in command of 600 men. And one ASP is assigned for one case. I am not emotional, but I am trying to make a comparison. And our officers are no joke, you know."

    Singapore crime rate at a 29-year-low

    Many people here leave home without worrying about a break- in and leave personal belongings unattended without fear of theft.
    Singapore has a worldwide reputation for being safe and latest police figures suggest the situation is improving further.
    The crime rate - the number of cases per 100,000 people - has been falling consistently since 2005, reaching a 29-year low of 581 last year. This is a dramatic drop from 1,373 in 1992.
    Mid-year figures released last month also showed a decrease in most common types of crime.

    No need statistics, you must be blind to say that crime rate in JB is the same as SG. I was just there that day walking at the shops in Taman Sentosa and overheard the shopkeepers talking about a robbery.

    I dress down and don't comb hair and walk ard in my Casio watch in JB.

    it's a stats game.

    1. 19000 cases means there are 19000 reported cases. what about unreported?

    2. less than 500 Singaporeans made police reports but what about those who didn't or can't be bothered?

    3. those lucky draw scams are not considered criminal in nature, so such cases won't be part of the '19000' figure. despite lots of reported cases of singaporeans being conned. guess what? only 1 company was prosecuted and fined couple of hundred ringgit.
