The Sunway Group has invested over RM500 million to improve security, accessibility, landscape, and green landscaping efforts in its Sunway City Kuala Lumpur (KL) township.

According to Sunway Group’s Senior Managing Director Datuk K.L. Tan, as a master community developer, Sunway recognises the importance of investing in these components – especially when they involve safety and security.

According to Tan, there are over 5,000 CCTV cameras installed within Sunway City KL, including within Sunway-owned buildings in Bandar Sunway. And in an interview with the New Straits Times, he also stated that the CCTV cameras came with built-in facial recognition features and motion detectors.

Sunway City employs up to 9,000 auxiliary police, security guards, and plainclothes policemen, which some of them conduct the 24-hour joint patrol sessions with the policemen within the township.

On a group level, Sunway has over 10,000 CCTV cameras installed within their townships in Malaysia and their international projects.

Said Tan, “We invest in auxiliary and plainclothes police personnel and security guards and work hard to fill those jobs with locals. They are in our shopping malls, hotels, universities, hospitals, theme parks and in all public places.

“For each business division, the guards work differently. They are trained to ensure security and to know locations. For example, mall security personnel should know where the outlets are located when asked by visitors.”

He further added that, ”Crime rate in Sunway City is at below one percent but any crime inside the shops is beyond our control. We do a lot of crime prevention and we put barriers and create walk paths for pedestrians.

“This prevents motorcyclists from coming into close contact with the pedestrians and snatching their bags or personal items,” he said.

Said Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah, Founder and Chairman of Sunway Group, Sunway City KL is the flagship development of the Sunway Group.

Originally mining land, the 323.75ha Bandar Sunway is now a thriving township. It is home to over 60 million sf of houses, a population of 200,000, and is a ground for future world-class facilities and developments.

Tan states that Sunway City has attracted over 42 million visitors, and is one of Southeast Asia’s premier tourist destinations.

“The township is regarded as a safe city and we aim for it to become a smart and sustainable city model. With 42 million visitors a year, we have to invest to improve security. We have constructed the tourist police service centre, which is a first in Selangor. The one-stop centre at the Sunway Pyramid mall will provide tourists with safety advice and solutions,” said Tan.

Sunway Pyramid also took the initiative to be the first shopping mall in Malaysia to be equipped with panic buttons.

Everyone must play their part to combat crime. It is not just up to PDRM, the government or organization to do so.
