Dear Sunny Lim
I would like to thank you for your efforts in reducing the crime rate in Penang, of late there was another Lim who went to another country to claim credit over your original efforts.
To be completely honest with you Sunny I find what you have done as macho giler siout....., kecik2 dulu gua pun semangat nak main askar2 n police n thief.....tapi kalu lu suruh gua voluntarily risk my safety for the greater good of the community....I think I'd prefer to stay in and watch the tele...
So since everyone is on the topic, allow me to take this opportunity to highlight to everyone what you have done for the state of Penang.
Good job mate!!!!
I sincerely believes that efforts such as yours should be supported by all and be replicated throughout the country.

PENANGITES appear to have been sleeping better these days, thanks to several groups of unsung heroes who help police to combat crime. The biggest so far seems to be the 1,800-strong Penang Island Voluntary Patrol Unit (PKSPP) which was formed two years ago. From a mere 30 members to its present strength, the unit is hailed as a force to be reckoned with, assisting cops to help keep criminals at bay.
And the man behind it, lorry salesman Sunny Lim, seems unperturbed over the huge jump in membership in just two years. “I’ve always felt that there are a lot of people out there who want to help the community but never had the chance (to do so). Our unit gives them that opportunity,” he said in an interview. In fact, voluntary patrol teams and other community policing groups were commended by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar for their efforts in helping the police to keep the crime rate down. During a high-profile policing programme and walkabout at Air Itam market last Thursday, the country’s top cop said police would enhance its relationship with volunteer patrol teams and other units to tackle crime.
Penang police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob had also attributed the state’s record-breaking drop in crime rate by 27.1% last year to community policing. Lim said he got the idea to set up the PKSPP in 2009 while volunteering as a Rela and Rukun Tetangga member. “Our surveillance began within the Komtar area and slowly, we expanded to the whole island,” he added.
