Our Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) actually launched an application last year that Malaysians can use to make police reports!

Though it has been a year now since its debut, shockingly, many Malaysians are still unaware of this amazing creation.

The app is called Volunteer Smartphone Patrol (VSP), which was made in hopes that the public would be more proactive in making police reports after witnessing or suspecting a crime.



Before the VSP came into existence, the public had to make reports via the PDRM hotline, SMS line or go to the police station themselves.

Though making phone calls or sending text messages could be done from anywhere, they were pretty limited in terms of sending pictures, videos or the exact location of the incident.

However, with VSP, we can send those media files and use our smartphone’s GPS system to send our exact location.

Plus, the app is very easy to use! Just download VSP into your phone and open the app.

If you’re a first time user, you have to register your details. Then, follow the simple steps below:



1. Input your details

Click on ‘daftar’ (register), then fill in your details accordingly. You merely need to come up with a username, phone number, then choose your location and whether you’re a normal citizen or a civil servant.

2. Request for a TAC number

After filling in your details, you have to request for a TAC number. The TAC number will be sent to you via SMS. This is why you absolutely have to input a working phone number.

 

3. Get your password



When you’re done registering, simply go back to the main menu and choose ‘semak’ (check). There, you need to input your registered phone number again to receive your password via SMS.

4. Log in

Once you’ve received the password, simply input your username and password in the main page and then click on ‘log masuk’ (log in).

 

Once done, you can start making police reports! Yay! 

You can click on the grey and white dots on the top left corner of the app to check out the main menu. To file a report, simply click on ‘aduan’ (complaint).

There, you can fill in the details, send pictures, and even input the exact GPS coordinates and location!

Besides that, there is also the ‘balik kampung‘ option where you can inform the police when you are away from home so that they can keep an eye out on your neighbourhood.

This option is particularly handy during celebrations where most urbanites will be back in their hometowns. Usually, places such as Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya are deserted during the festive season, which may attract robbers and thieves towards those empty houses.

By informing the police of vacant neighbourhoods, they will know which areas to amp up with policemen and patrols.

Last but not least, you can also easily locate the police headquarters using VSP. You can click onto ‘cawangan’ (branch) to find the police HQ of each state.

They have the station’s address, telephone number, fax number and even exact location via GPS.

The app is available on both Android and iOS.

The PDRM’s motto is,

“The peace and safety of the country is our shared responsibility.”

This saying is so true because we all have to work together to build a better community.

Just remember not to make false reports because that is against the law and you can be arrested for doing so! Don’t play play, ok…
